New Fears

By Mark Morris
New Fears by Mark Morris digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Winner of the British Fantasy Society Award for “Best Anthology”

An electrifying horror anthology featuring 19 stories by award-winning heavyweights of the genre—including Bird Box author Josh Malerman and Ramsey Campbell


The horror genre’s greatest living practitioners drag our darkest fears, kicking and screaming, into the light . . . In “The Boggle Hole” by Alison Littlewood, an ancient folk tale leads to irrevocable loss. In Josh Malerman’s “The House of the Head”—also seen Shudder’s Creepshow horror series—a dollhouse becomes the focus for an incident both violent and inexplicable. And in “Speaking Still”, Ramsey Campbell suggests that beyond death there may be far worse things waiting than we can ever imagine . . .
 
Numinous, surreal and gut-wrenching, New Fears is a vibrant collection showcasing the very best fiction modern horror has to offer.

“A lot of the stories didn't feel like horror stories to me. I lost interest halfway through a few of them because they did not make sense. However, I did enjoy a lot of them, they're well written and unpredictable, but a few of them were too bisarre for me. I want to read more short story collections because I quite like reading a story in one go, but I sometimes feel like there's something missing when I read a short story. After writing my own short story, I understand how difficult it actually is to write one.”
“Since the recent announcement of the closure of Great Jones Street, I’ve seen it bandied about on social mayhem sites that the short story as a viable form for speculative fiction is in its death throes. Well, I’m here to tell you that it just isn’t true. 2017 saw some of the best collections and anthologies of this generation produced by some of the greatest authors and editors in the business; some young, some grizzled veterans, all hugely talented and working at the top of their game, particularly in horror fiction. One such editor is https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/40383.Mark_Morris , curator of the stories in this book I’m talking about today. New Fears is an anthology that hearkens back to the old days, taking something that was the norm back in the ‘70s and ‘80s and making it seem almost new by comparison to the typical themed volumes that are being produced en masse today. This book, in the vein of such greats as https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/18351.Douglas_E__Winter ’s https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/446813.Prime_Evil_New_Stories_by_the_Masters_of_Modern_Horror Prime Evil and https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/44806.Dennis_Etchison ’s https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/219441.Cutting_Edge —not to mention everything https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/491426.Kirby_McCauley ever touched—is un-themed because Morris wanted to create something that would demonstrate the varied and seemingly limitless possibilities of our chosen genre. So, he limited his contributors to just one simple and very important requirement: write a damn good story. And I can tell you that the authors within responded in fucking spades.
