The horror genre’s greatest living practitioners drag our darkest fears kicking and screaming into the light in this collection of nineteen brand-new stories. In “The Boggle Hole” by Alison Littlewood an ancient folk tale leads to irrevocable loss. In Josh Malerman’s “The House of the Head” a dollhouse becomes the focus for an incident both violent and inexplicable. And in “Speaking Still” Ramsey Campbell suggests that beyond death there may be far worse things waiting than we can ever imagine... Numinous, surreal and gut wrenching, New Fears is a vibrant collection showcasing the very best fiction modern horror has to offer.

"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." - San Francisco Book Review (4-star review)
