From Earthling Publications:
For the past twenty years, the annual Best New Horror series has been the major showcase for superior short stories and novellas of horror and dark fantasy. Edited by Stephen Jones, the World Fantasy Award, British Fantasy Award and International Horror Guild Award-winning series has published more than 450 stories by around 200 of the genre's most famous and acclaimed authors, as well as those newcomers who are just starting out on their careers. To celebrate the anthology's twentieth anniversary, the editor has selected from each volume one story that he considers to be the "best" for reasons explained in his historical introduction to each tale. As a result, some of horror's biggest names are represented, including Stephen King, Clive Barker, Peter Straub, Harlan Ellison, Brian Lumley and Neil Gaiman, along with newer writers such as Joe Hill, Glen Hirshberg, Mark Samuels and Terry Lamsley. With a unique Introduction by Ramsey Campbell, and an indispensable Index detailing the entire contents of the series over all twenty volumes, The Very Best of Best New Horror is a tribute to the world's premier annual anthology of contemporary horror fiction.
