New Fears – New horror stories by masters of the genre
If you watch horror movies at all, it seems like everything has been done to death. Haunted dolls, monsters, strangers infiltrating your life….It’s all been done before. And then you read a collection like New Fears, and you realize there are still plenty of untapped depths of spooks and scares awaiting you, if you know where to look.
From the haunting loss of trust between a child and a grandparent to a Poe-style tale of a woman romanced, poisoned, and locked away, you’ll find all flavors of horror here, each of them sinister and intriguing in their own way. Some stories even manage to be funny as they creep you out, the delightful mix of emotions that only horror can elicit from a reader.
New Fears offers just that, either venturing into unexplored shadows or putting wonderful new spins on old chestnuts — a murder in a dollhouse, child abduction in an elevator — in order to instill a proper sense of fear into readers who have seen it all before.
The mix of established names and relative newcomers should also give horror fans hope. It means there’s plenty of new blood to bring new scares in the years ahead.
