The latest installment in the venerable Night Visions series, edited by relative newcomer Burke (Hides), matches the talent included in previous volumes with eight horror stories from three masters of the genre. Simon Clark honors past masters of the genre with his three pieces; the best of which-"Frankenstein, Victor"-reimagines Mary Shelley's classic and exemplifies Clark's political commentary, vivid imagery and incisive characterization. Mark Morris's contributions stand out in the volume, particularly "The Story of April and Her Colours," narrated with eerie sweetness by the autistic protagonist, and the nightmarish What Nature Abhors, about one man's descent into a very personal hell. P.D. Cacek rounds out this excellent anthology with Forced Perspective, a novella about a psychiatrist's romances with his patient's multiple personalities, and Campfire Story, about a boy who'd do almost anything for his best friend.

The latest Night Visions showcases three authors. Simon Clark is a horror traditionalist, whose work recalls such past masters as Poe and Lovecraft as it deftly conjures a House-of-Usher-like aura of thickening doom. Mark Morris' stuff suggests contemporary cinema FX as it palpably, gruesomely realizes the term morph. P. D. Cacek's stories are unsettling on many levels. In one, an egotistical, ambitious psychotherapist plans not only on making his reputation with a multiple--personality patient but also on "making" her, or them. His increasing infatuation with the tease; the irritating smoker; the uptight, repressed maiden; and more drives him toward a blood-chilling, bloodletting encounter. Whitney Scott
