Review: Ellen Datlow’s The Best Horror of the Year, Volume Six

Best Horror of the Year 6

By Alison J. McKenzie


Datlow, Ellen, ed. The Best Horror of the Year, Volume 6. Night Shade Books (June 3, 2014). Paperback: 448 pages. ISBN-13: 978-1597805032.


I have a love-hate relationship with anthologies. Going in, I can typically expect the following: a couple of outstanding stories, some pretty good ones, some “blah” ones, and one or two that make me want to chuck my Kindle at a wall. The gamble is really in the balance of quality versus dreck. …

Datlow, Ellen. Lovecraft’s Monsters. Tachyon Publications (April 15, 2014) Paperback: 432 pages. ISBN-13: 978-1616961213.


There is little doubt that H.P. Lovecraft’s Mythos has penetrated the Western world’s popular culture, from Cthulhu’s cameo on South Park to plushy toys adorned with tentacle visages, H.P.’s monsters are ubiquitous.

However, many who see these images are unaware that they are even derived from a corpus of literature at all. Meanwhile, within the literary sub-genre of Lovecraftian horror, the monsters …

Review: The New Gothic

By KL Pereira


Lewis, Beth K., ed. The New Gothic. Stone Skin Press, 2013. ISBN: 9781908983053.


I’m a sucker for gloomy moors, craggy manor houses, and the errant spectre flitting through echoey halls, so I was pretty excited to read The New Gothic. In the introduction, the editor describes her own obsessions with this literary mode, which include a love of Wuthering Heights and works that display a commitment to emotional intensity. What marks this anthology as one …
