AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A collection of horror stories by writers from Australia, the United Kingdom and North America. Australian writers included are: Russell Blackford, Simon Brown, Isobelle Carmody, Stephen Dedman, Sara Douglass, Terry Dowling, Chris Lawson, Rosaleen Love, Mike O'Driscoll, Aaron Sterns, Janeen Webb and Cherry Wilder.

The editors state their intention in commissioning the anthology as being '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' (p.xi).
