The book compiles the best short horror fiction published by magazines, anthologies, and web sites spanning the years 2000 – 2010. This prodigious collection is truly one-of-a-kind. It includes stories from National Book Award nominee Dan Chaon, rising-horror-star Jeff Jacobson, Bram Stoker Award-winner John Everson, World Fantasy Award winner Andy Duncan, and New York Times-bestselling author Tom Monteleone, among other worthies. These stories deal with “uniquely American” themes and subjects, and are written in an equally unique “American style.”
