Reviews

"The stories in The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror: Volume Twenty are proof that horror is still a healthy and viable genre yielding up its share of gems every year. Readers should also be aware that a little more than a fifth of the book is taken up with Jones's detailed prefatory overview of the year in horror in all media, and the ever-valuable 'Necrology' Jones compiles with Kim Newman listing the deaths of writers, film directors, and other personalities associated with the horror field. These were always indispensable reading for anyone who wanted to know the state of the art of horror, but especially now, with the demise of The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror and that series's abundant overview essays, it makes the best snapshot we have for horror in any given year."
—Stefan Dziemianowicz
LOCUS Issue 591, April 2010

"The twentieth anniversary edition of Best New Horror keeps up the high standards. Besides showcasing some outstanding stories, Steve Jones provides a lengthy and detailed summary of the world of horror in 2008, covering everything from novels and stories to films, television and computer games—it is truly remarkable in its breadth and coverage."
—MACHENALIA: THE NEWSLETTER OF THE FRIENDS OF ARTHUR MACHEN, Spring 2010

"Horror anthologist Stephen Jones produces another winner in his long list of Mammoth books. There's a good reason that Jones has won so many awards—he's great at choosing horror literature. His books are a great resource to those of us in a continual search for quality fiction in this genre . . . The horror community is lucky to have Jones, who consistently gifts us with quality . . . I've found that I've never been disappointed with Jones' collections. Pick up any one, and you're in for one heck of a spooky ride."
—Jill McDole
IMPACT: THE GLOBAL ACTION ENTERTAINMENT MAGAZINE, January 2010

"'Best of' anthologies are guaranteed to annoy a lot of people because of their inclusions and exclusions. But BNH is unignorable—if this one is anything to go by—it does offer the best overview of the field you can get. Here is not only a snapshot of the state horror writing is in—quite a healthy state, I reckon—but also a huge amount of information about the vast and nebulous genre. 'Horror in 2008' and the Necrology make fascinating reading, not just for the 'Oh, is he dead, then?' factor, but because they bring home to you the sprawing weirdness of it all."
—David Longhorn
SUPERNATURAL TALES #16, Winter 2009

"I can honestly say that there is not a single one of this books 541 pages that I didn't enjoy. Many of the stories are excellent, some outstanding but none are less than good. If you know anyone that doesn't like horror give them a copy of this book. There is so much variety, so much quality on display here that I cannot believe for one minute that there will not be something in here that every reader, no matter how biased, would enjoy."
—HIGHLANDER'S BOOK REVIEWS

"The annual Best New Horror anthology edited by Stephen Jones celebrates its twentieth anniversary with flying colours providing one of its more compelling and satisfying selections in years. With a few exceptions, the large majority of the twenty pieces of dark fiction included in the latest volume of this long lasting, successful series are either outstanding or simply excellent."
