About this title

Synopsis:

Nearly twenty years ago, the legendary Night Visions series was conceived by Dark Harvest Press as a showcase for the outstanding short fiction being produced today by the best of the established authors and the most talented of the new writers in the fields of horror and dark fantasy.

Now, from the grave, Night Visions returns with original novellas by Jack Ketchum and John Shirley, and five new stories by David B. Silva...

A nightmare creature, buried by children, returns to claim them as adults.

A woman's flat tire turns into a memorable stretch of bad luck as she becomes a passenger in a car bound for Hell.

A man spends his life trying to forget the misdeeds of his past.

A small group of teenagers must overcome an ancient evil.

Experience the return of terror in Night Visions 10, edited by World Fantasy award-winner Richard Chizmar.

From Publishers Weekly:

Older horror mavens will remember the original Night Vision series, published in the 1980s by Dark Harvest and offering fresh fiction from Dean Koontz, Richard Laymon, Joe R. Lansdale and other formidable authors. Now Subterranean is reviving the series, keeping the original's mix of long and short fiction by three authors per volume. Editor Chizmar (founder of Cemetery Dance) includes tales by Jack Ketchum, John Shirley and David B. Silva for the kickoff. These aren't top-name authors, though both Ketchum and Shirley are making comebacks of late, but there's some top-drawer work here, along with weaker material. The fictions range from slasher horror (Ketchum's novella, "The Passenger") to supernatural horror with a philosophical twist (Shirley's novella, "Her Hunger") to short stories (from Silva) that skirt the occult or embrace it. Ketchum's reputation won't be enhanced by his tale of a woman attorney kidnapped by two homicidal thugs and one crazy lady, all winding up at a hellish outlaw hangout. The words move fast and there's a tidy ending, but the story's gross sensationalism overcomes the nod toward the theme of victim triumphant that runs through all of Ketchum's work. Shirley's is an entertaining tale, scary and full of surprises, of an incubus in California; it features believably off-kilter characters and a neat touch of metaphysics (only "conscious love" can defeat the incubus). The Silva stories take sensitive excursions into Twilight Zone territory and demonstrate why his upcoming full-length story collection (Through Shattered Glass) received a starred review in last week's PW. Overall this is a fine return, dipping lightly into a wide pool of horror styles and themes. (Apr.)Forecast: Veteran horror fans will grin at the return of a classic series and will part eagerly with their cash.
