Reviews

"In short, it's an anthology with no theme—the only thing the stories have in common is consistently high quality . . . A brilliant, properly frightening book, and a good indicator of what state the top end of the genre is in."
—Stewart Horne
BRITISH FANTASY SOCIETY, December 6, 2012

"One of our field's most celebrated horror editors."
—LOCUS Issue 621, October 2012

"There is no set theme as such, beyond editor Jones' tub thumping introduction eschewing the case for scary monsters. And A Book of Horrors has plenty of those."
—Peter Tennant
BLACK STATIC Issue 30, Sep-Oct 2012

"Jones stays true to his intentions, and only includes truly horrifying subject matter here."
—Jessa Sobczuk
RUE MORGUE Issue #126, September 2012

"These 14 stories, many of them by acknowledged masters of the genre (King, Campbell, Matheson) are all old-fashioned, spine-tingling horror . . . An excellent collection, and a good reminder that you can still tell terrifying horror stories, even in an age of love-stricken vampires."
—David Pitt
BOOKLIST ONLINE, July 13, 2012

"Jones (The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror) passes up the coy and cute for the purely frightening in this exemplary anthology for those who 'understand and appreciate the worth and impact of a scary story' . . . The abundance of talent will provide ample delights and frights for anyone in search of true classic horror."
—PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, July 9, 2012 (starred review)

"A Book of Horrors demonstrates a bravura and confidence that, sadly, many publishers and editors lack these days . . . a tremendous collection of stories."
—Michael Kelly
SHADOWS & TALL TREES, Issue 3, Spring 2012

"Excellent"
—TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT, December 9, 2011

"A quality primer for initiates to the genre."
—Danielle Goldstein
TIME OUT, October 27-November 2, 2011

"Stephen Jones remains at the top of the tree as one of the world's premiere anthologists of stories designed to chill the blood."
—Barry Forshaw
CRIME TIME, October 20, 2011

"All in all, A Book of Horrors is a splendid collection that showcases everything that's best about both the short story and the horror anthology."
—Jess Bickham
SFX MAGAZINE No.215, December 2011

"Most of the stories in A Book of Horrors would be standouts if they were scattered across lesser anthologies. Together, they show those who might have been inclined to doubt that, whatever its market share, horror fiction is as robust and vibrant now as at any point in its long history."
—Brendan Moody
THE STARS AT NOONDAY: THOUGHTS ON WEIRD, STRANGE, AND SUPERNATURAL FICTION, October 17, 2011

"An outstanding collection . . . Stephen Jones has put horror back on the bookshelves in fine style, buy this book and make sure it stays there."
—Colin Leslie
