Unlucky thieves invade a house where Home Alone seems like a playground romp. An antique bookseller and a mob enforcer join forces to retrieve the Atlas of Hell. Postapocalyptic survivors cannot decide which is worse: demon women haunting the skies or maddened extremists patrolling the earth.
In this chilling twenty-first-century companion to the cult classic Darkness: Two Decades of Modern Horror, Ellen Datlow again proves herself the most masterful editor of the genre. She has mined the breadth and depth of ten years of terror, collecting superlative works of established masters and scene-stealing newcomers alike.
Nightmares A New Decade of Horror edited by Ellen Datlow
Sad to say, but I just could not get through Nightmares a New Decade of Horror to the end. I got to around 40% and was just bored out of my brain. The stories did not scare me a bit. I think every single creepypasta I’ve read has gotten more of a rise out of me than all of the short stories I read in this collection. Most of the stories in the collection were just talk and descriptions with nothing happening. No building up of suspense. No thought that this could happen to me. It all fell flat, especially compared to other horror collections and stories I’ve read. The scariest thing to me was the cover.
