Here’s the description and star-studded table of contents for the new fantasy anthology Beyond the Pale edited by Henry Herz:

Beyond the Pale is an anthology of fantasy, urban fantasy and paranormal stories that skirt the border between our world and others. Was that my imagination, or did I hear something under my bed? What was that blurred movement in my darkened closet? There is but a thin Veil separating the real and the fantastic, and therein dwell the inhabitants of these stories. Beyond the Pale contains eleven short stories by award-winning and New York Times bestselling authors Saladin Ahmed (Throne of the Crescent Moon), Peter S. Beagle (The Last Unicorn), Heather Brewer (Vladimir Tod), Jim Butcher (Dresden Files), Kami Garcia (Beautiful Creatures), Nancy Holder (Wicked), Gillian Philip (Rebel Angels), and Jane Yolen (Owl Moon). The noun “pale” refers to a stake (as in impaling vampires) or pointed piece of wood (as in a paling fence). “Pale” came to refer to an area enclosed by a paling fence. Later, it acquired the figurative meaning of an enclosed and therefore safe domain. Conversely, “beyond the pale” means foreign, strange, or threatening. You are about to go Beyond the Pale.

Subterranean has posted the table of contents for the upcoming collection The Collected Stories of Philip K. Dick Volume Five: We Can Remember it for You Wholesale which features a dust jacket by Bill Sienkewicz:

But first, the book description:

Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) was one of the seminal figures of 20th century science fiction. His many stories and novels, which include such classics as Ubik and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, reflect a deeply personal world view, exploring the fragile, multifarious nature of reality itself and examining those elements that make us—or fail to make us—fully human. He did as much as anyone to demolish the artificial barrier between genre fiction and “literature,” and the best of his work has earned a permanent place in American popular culture.

We Can Remember It for You Wholesale is the final installment of a uniform, five-volume edition of The Collected Stories of Philip K. Dick. This expansive collection contains 27 stories and novellas written between 1963 and 1981, years in which Dick produced some of his most mature work, including such novels as Ubik, Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said, and A Scanner Darkly. Among the many pleasures included here are the classic title story (filmed twice as Total Recall), in which an ordinary clerk, awash in resurrected memories, discovers the truth about his past and about the astonishing role he has played in human history; the Hugo-nominated “Faith of Our Fathers,” with its bleak and controversial vision of a predatory deity; and “The Electric Ant,” a brilliant embodiment of a classic Dick theme: the elusive—and changeable—nature of what we believe to be “real.” Like its predecessors, this generous volume offers wit, ingenuity, and intellectual excitement on virtually every page. The best of these stories, like the best of Dick’s novels, are richly imagined, deeply personal visions that no one else could have written. They’re going to be around for a very long time to come.

Ellen Datlow has another fin-looking anthology on the horizon…

Here’s the table of contents for her upcoming (March 2015) anthology The Doll Collection, decribed thusly:

An anthology featuring all-original dark tales of dolls from bestselling and award-winning authors, compiled by one of the top editors in the field.

The Doll Collection is exactly what it wounds like: a treasured toy box of all-original dark stories about dolls of all types, including everything from puppets and poppets to mannequins and baby dolls.

Featuring everything from life-sized clockwork dolls to all-too-human Betsy Wetsy-type baby dolls, these stories play into the true creepiness of the doll trope, but avoid the clichés that often show up in stories of this type.

Master anthologist Ellen Datlow has assembled a list of beautiful and terrifying stories from bestselling and critically acclaimed authors such as Joyce Carol Oates, Seanan McGuire, Carrie Vaughn, Pat Cadigan, Tim Lebbon, Richard Kadrey, Genevieve Valentine, and Jeffrey Ford. The collection is illustrated with photographs of dolls taken by Datlow and other devoted doll collectors from the science fiction and fantasy field. The result is a star-studded collection exploring one of the most primal fears of readers of dark fiction everywhere, and one that every reader will want to add to their own collection.

Here’s the table of contents for the upcoming kickstarted urban fantasy anthology Streets of Shadows:

Here’s the book description:

You think you’re safe. What a joke.

You don’t think about the places you pass every day. The side streets. The alleys. Under bridges. The shadows.

All you’d have to do is take a step to the side. Then you’d know.

Life on the streets ain’t easy. It takes someone tough like me to survive. Danger lurks in the shadows. Yeah, there’s muggers and gangs. Sometimes you get zombies, vampires, and ghouls. And if you’re real unlucky, you run into the scary stuff.

Whether it’s the dirty streets of Detroit, the paved-over cobblestones of London, or the patched asphalt of your hometown, people like me are all that stand between death and your door.

Our world isn’t made up of parks and malls. Our world is the streets, covered in shadows.

These are our stories.
