Tachyon will publish Nightmares: A New Decade of Modern Horror edited by Ellen Datlow in November. Check out the table of contents!

About the book:

From the most acclaimed horror editor in the business comes the most groundbreaking horror of the new millennium. In Nightmares, editor extraordinaire Datlow has skillfully reprised her classic anthology Darkness: Two Decades of Modern Horror. Here you will find iconic authors mingling with unexpected new masters of terror. These tales represent the finest stories of s new era, in which evil both everyday and unfathomable will simply not go away.

In “Ambitious Boys Like You,” two inexperienced thieves discover a residence which makes Home Alone seem like a playground romp. The question of “Is She Wicked? Is She Good?,” is asked by concerned parents whose cruel child courts fairy revenge. The “Ash Mouth Man” may be just a legend to girls who wish to waste away – but is he only worth just one kiss?
