Product Description

From Amazon

The 10th volume of this excellent annual anthology series not only collects 39 stories and 4 poems in these overlapping genres, but reports on the year's best in books, movies, and other media. The horror and dark fantasy tales are by Jay Russell (family ghost), Angela Carter (fairy tale ghost), Edward Bryant (aliens), Robert Silverberg (dark goddess), Yxta Maya Murray (Southwestern folklore ghost), Thomas Ligotti (secret society), Graham Masterton (macabre recipe book), Douglas Clegg (anguished love), Stephen Dedman (child lamia who knew Lewis Carroll), Terry Lamsley (monster "pet"), Isobelle Carmody (phoenix), Delia Sherman (witches and wolves), Lisa Russ Spaar (Rapunzel), Neil Gaiman (queen bee), Philip Graham (oppressive angel), Terry Dowling (monomania), Dennis Etchison (L.A. paranoia), Kathe Koja and Barry N. Malzberg (ravaging bears), A. R. Morlan (rock 'n' roll sleaze), Michael Marshall Smith (entrapping relationship), and Ron Hansen (magic realism). All the dark tales are high quality, and a few are among the best in the series so far.

From Library Journal

The discerning editors selected 39 short stories and four poems as the best published in 1996 from genre and mainstream sources. The broad and inclusive coverage runs from traditional fantasy and horror to dark fantasy, magical realism, and surrealism from such well-known authors as Tanith Lee, Michael Bishop, Robert Silverberg, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Patricia A. McKillip, and Jane Yolen, among others. The editors' consistently good choices makes this an excellent purchase for all fantasy and horror collections.

From Kirkus Reviews

The variety of this top-flight annual never fails to appeal, in part because it covers so much material, including, along with the best stories, obituaries of writers whose files have closed, a review of the year's best fantasy in film, television, and comic books, and summations of the year's activities in horror and fantasy. The tales here encompass works both by such accomplished writers as Gabriel Garc¡a-M rquez (``Caribe Magico''), Ron Hansen (``Wilderness''), Robert Olen Butler (with his absolutely classic, immensely moving ``JFK Secretly Attends Jackie Auction''), Angela Carter (``The Snow Pavilion''), Robert Silverberg (``Diana of the Hundred Breasts''), and by stylish standbys like Thomas Ligotti (``Teatro Grottesco'') and Graham Masterton (``The Secret of Shih Tan''). Among the most inspired and offbeat entries is a film script in iambic verse by Neil Gaiman, ``Eaten (Scenes from a Moving Picture),'' a raw, deeply erotic work not for the faint of heart. There are over 40 entries here, in a collection not to be missed by anyone seriously interested in fantasy or horror. -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP.
