Summary

For more than three decades, Ellen Datlow has been at the center of horror. Bringing you the most frightening and terrifying stories, Datlow always has her finger on the pulse of what horror fans crave. Now, with the eleventh volume of the series, Datlow is back again to bring you the stories that will keep you up at night. 

The Best Horror of the Year has included such illustrious writers as:

With each passing year, science, technology, and the march of time shine light into the craggy corners of the universe, making the fears of an earlier generation seem quaint.

It is a catalog of terror, fear, and unpleasantness as articulated by today's most challenging and exciting writers.

Blue chip horror

Datlow does it again. Best editor of modern horror working today. If you see her name on it, it's awesome. I own every audiobook shes edited on iOS and just switched to Android. Psyched to see this here 👍

Utterly forgettable

I just finished this and I can honestly almost none of the stories are memorable. Most have no suspense or tension. Narrators are only ok, but it is clear after the first few stories that they really have no range for the characters. At times they come across as robotic.

Great Road Trip Material

I found this to be the best volume I’ve listened too so far. Heartbreaking, dreadful, disturbing, but good stories, and a wide variety of themes.

worst entry in this series

Almost every story in this edition is boring. I normally really enjoy every installment of this collection, but I feel like Datlow must have handed off #11 to the new intern.

Couldn't Finish

I'm not sure if this anthology gets better because I returned it after the second story.
The first story is so reminiscent of "creepy pasta" that I was shocked it was published. It made no sense and held no horror. It was as if a 10 year old made up a scary story and then their fifteen year old brother filled in some gift details. Hands down one of the worst stories I've ever encountered.
Then, maybe it was a technical glitch, but the insane second story just stopped in the middle of a scene. If that's where the story stopped then it's insulting in its attempt at horror because there, again, was none, just a bad vacation.
Either way I couldn't waste more of my time with it, oof. So bad.
