THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF BEST NEW HORROR by Stephen Jones
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Dec. 1, 2001

"As ever, the finest horror collection going, with no leaning on hackwork."
Horrormeister Jones defends his collections against Internet carpings that he favors British writers in his horror annual. While two thirds of the present one is British, that's not the usual balance. And much British material was first published in the US, while other stuff was taken from e-books and small press publications. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

NON-FICTION
Released: Sept. 11, 2002

"An excellent job of synthesizing the many voices made available through the newspaper to form a coherent and forceful narrative. (16 pp. b&w insert, not seen)"
The planes came out of the blue, but their intentions were long in the making as New York Times reporter Bernstein (Dictatorship of Virtue, 1994, etc.) explicates in this taut narrative of the events, personalities, and circumstances surrounding the attacks of September 11, 2001.
