About this title

Synopsis:

Showcases some of the best new short fiction in the fields of horror, suspense, and dark fantasy

From Publishers Weekly:

The latest in this anthology series (each volume showcases the talents of three horror writers) is the usual mixed bag, with more than enough fine work to make it worthwhile. Richard Laymon provides the best stories in the book, each of which packs a solid punch. "Mop Up," the tale of a handful of soldiers eradicating the ghoul-like victims of a virulently contagious disease, reads like the scenario of a George Romero film and is just as scary. "Wishbone" depicts a troubled relationship given its coup de grace by a much too animated skeleton. "Bad News" considers what might happen if suburbia were invaded by a horde of deadly rat-like creatures, and "Madman Stan" tells of a bizarre baby-sitter who terrorizes her wards. The best of Chet Williamson's three contributions is the thoughtful novelette "Confession of St. James," an interesting character study of a good-hearted but disturbed priest who consumes human flesh when he celebrates the Eucharist. Gary Brandner's lurid short novel, "Damntown," is set in a village in Wisconsin perpetually frozen in time: a June day in 1933, when the devil showed up to make the town his headquarters.

Store Description

Rare Reads formerly operated a storefront in The Lakewood Antiques Gallery in Atlanta, Georgia but reverted to a strictly online operation when the Gallery closed. In 2006, Rare Reads published "The Heeey Baby Days of Beach Music" which received a bronze medal from The Independent Publishers Association. Long sold out, copies of the 13 pound tribute to the musicians who created the unique R&B genre are occasionally available on ABE. The book was a collaborative effort of Rare Reads and many others including the musicians that created the sound Southerns term "Beach Music." Rare Reads is considering future publications in addition to expanding its online enterprise. Rare Reads is operated by Greg Haynes and son Reid Haynes and has warehouses in Atlanta and Athens, Georgia.
