Enter the shadows of New York's dark secrets and haunted past

From a city and state that have witnessed all manner of menace--from serial killers and corrupt political machines to natural disasters and terrorist attacks--come twenty-four visions of dread from New York horror authors--all to benefit the next generation of New York writers. Presenting stories set in New York locations, A NEW YORK STATE OF FRIGHT gathers tales by new and established writers who give voice to New York's everyday fears, macabre mysteries, and worst nightmares.

To help New York's rich literary tradition endure into the future, the authors, editors, and publisher of A NEW YORK STATE OF FRIGHT pledge to contribute all proceeds to New York City's Girls Write Now non-profit organization, which pairs at-risk teen women interested in writing with professional writing and career mentors.
