Dark fiction anthologies constitute a genre of books still fairly popular for short story lovers who like to sample different tastes, discover new authors, and enjoy different writing styles. Regardless of the editor's ability in selecting good material, the fate of almost any anthology is to offer to the readers some stories of their liking and other pieces bound to leave them either unimpressed or positively dissatisfied. The present, new anthology from Subterranean Press, assembling eleven original tales, is no exception. From official release/information:
Product Description: Subterranean: Tales of Dark Fantasy, published in 2008 to widespread critical and popular acclaim, provided a unique showcase for some of our finest practitioners of dark, disturbing fiction. This much anticipated second volume more than meets the standards set by its predecessor, offering a diverse assortment of stories guaranteed to delight, unsettle, and enthrall. Volume two proper is a full 20,000 words longer than the first installment in the series.
