Tachyon has posted the table of contents for the upcoming anthology The Cutting Room: Dark Reflections of the Silver Screen edited by Ellen Datlow, now available for pre-order.

Here’s the book description:

What happens after the closing credits and before the lights go out? When you turn off your TV, but still aren’t able to sleep? Sometimes only the written word will do. These twenty-two classic tales are a chilling homage to the silver screen. Discover that James Dean’s death was not an accident, a trip to Oz is a one-way ticket, and zombies were behind the corporate greed of the 1980s. Learn how reality is edited (and found overly long) and how the final girl, the film’s sole survivor, emerges with a captive audience. Join award-winning and bestselling authors from Neil Gaiman to Peter Straub in a journey to the darkest depths of the theater.
