Publisher's Summary

From Ellen Datlow, award-winning and genre-shaping editor of more than fifty anthologies, and twenty of horror's established masters and rising stars, comes an all-original look into the beautiful, terrible, tragic, and terrifying.

Wander through visions of the most terrible of angels, the Seven who would undo the world. Venture through Hell and back, and lands more terrestrial and darker still. Linger a while in childhoods, and seasons of change by turns tragic and monstrously transformative. Lose yourself amongst the haunted and those who can't let go, in relationships that might have been and never were. Witness in dreams and reflections, hungers and horrors, the shadows cast upon the wall, and linger in forests deep.

Come see what burns so bright. . . .

A good edition to my library

I've read/listened to two Datlow horror anthologies previously and I'm beginning to see a pattern. Each one has had a couple of stories I love, a couple I like, a few I hate and the rest are fairly middle of the road.

What makes this one my favorite of the three however is the reader. Fleet Cooper has got the goods, not to mention the range. Psycho magical murder hobo, snooty English scholarly aristocrat, Bostonian working-class single mother, 1930s era gangster tough guy - Cooper can do them all and he's never better than when he's in the realm of horror. His involvement in this project pushes it from a decent audiobook to a great one for me.

meh.

The stories were intriguing but I wasn't happy with the book in the end because I wanted longer stories. Probably my fault because I didn't realize it was a compilation but.....
