The anthology market these days is awash with small, themed works focused on very specific markets, like vampire erotica and tales of werewolves, or it features best of the year reprints. It has been years since anyone has dared to bring out a broad-reaching anthology that seeks to define the current state of the genre with all original tales from both masters and hot new writers.

From the Back Cover:

Dark Visions From Around the Globe!

"We set out to illustrate how vast and international the scope of the genre has become and the vitality of writing to be found in it as the new century begins. To that end, each editor solicited a third of this volume's contents in his own country of residence―Ramsey Campbell in Great Britain, Jack Dann in Australia, and Dennis Etchison in the United States. Our intention was to present the familiar and the experimental, the traditional and the avant-garde, the quiet and the vividly shocking, in a field whose boundaries are no longer rigidly defined and where literary values coexist with the leading edge of popular culture. There is no need for a narrow, constricted theme to inhibit the imagination, for dark fantasy is truly an international fiction without limits." --from the Introduction
