Review:

This superb anthology is as valuable for its detailed summations of horror and fantasy in 1995 (in literature and in comics, television, movies, etc.), as for the 35 stories and 9 poems. Also useful for its exploration of the crossover genre known as "dark fantasy." Noteworthy authors include Peter S. Beagle, Ursula Le Guin, Stephen King, Lucy Taylor, Steve Rasnic Tem, Tanith Lee, A. S. Byatt, David J. Schow, and Joyce Carol Oates.
