Description

For more than three decades, Ellen Datlow has been at the center of horror. Bringing you the most frightening and terrifying stories, Datlow always has her finger on the pulse of what horror fans crave. Now, with the ninth volume of the series, Datlow is back again to bring you the stories that will keep you up at night. With each passing year, science, technology, and the march of time shine light into the craggy corners of the universe, making the fears of an earlier generation seem quaint. But this light creates its own shadows. The Best Horror of the Year chronicles these shifting shadows. It is a catalog of terror, fear, and unpleasantness as articulated by today's most challenging and exciting writers.

Great Collection!

Every anthology is a hit or miss and this one is no exception. I happen to enjoy a large majority of the stories many of which include tales of cosmic horror ala HP Lovecraft. All are well written stories and thankfully the gross out tales are missing.

Well worth it.

Some of the stories are a slow burn, but worth every minute. The narration is top notch.

somthing for everyone

this has a lot of hit and misses for me but I would say the misses are maybe 3 or 4 total
otherwise all of them are bone chilling and I couldnt recommend it more for seekers of thrills and horror

A mix of stories

I liked most of the stories. The story about the mine was creepy and sad.

Harder to get through than I anticipated

The stories were very good, but I've been spoiled by the continuity of novels. I occasionally missed the transitions between stories while listening as I was cleaning up at work at the end of the day.

Good stories marred by sub-par male narrator

While the quality of the stories varies - a function of differing levels of ability among the authors themselves - it’s a fairly solid collection.

The narration is a different matter entirely. The female narrator is competent and engaging; her male counterpart is so bad he basically ruins half the book.

He intones the text in a flat, wooden cadence that has the effect of isolating words from one another, such that sentences come across as collections of unrelated sounds rather than cohering parts of a whole.

It is almost as though the words were recorded individually and then strung together using editing software. For all I know, that’s standard practice. But if so, why even bother crediting a human narrator? If I want to listen to a robot, I’ll call my credit card company.

Did not enjoy. Interesting at best.

It was a struggle to get through since the performances could but you to snooze. Most at least and the stories were interesting at best. Thought inducing but far from horror or fear inspiring. I'm getting a refund on credit.

Not worth it

This book had a hard time keeping my attention. I make it through a little bit more than half and I stopped listening.

Some stories were perfect, others not so.

Maybe they just weren't my taste, but especially the last ones I couldn't finish. I also liked the female speaker a lot more. I would say 50/50, which isn't good for something that I paid for. the nosleep podcast has that and the basic model is free.
