Product Description
Product Details


"This groundbreaking anthology of contemporary horror stories from around the world is an irrefutable testament to the international popularity of horror fiction as a form of literary expression ... This book is a must for horror fans and the start of an exciting new series." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)"This collection is stellar from top to bottom . . . this desperately needed anthology is meticulously researched and translated, offering stories from a variety of perspectives across five continents, and representing the broad range of storytelling styles and tropes that are used by all horror storytellers regardless of nationality." - Library Journal"An extraordinary achievement. This anthology has so much that I celebrate; distinctively weird and dark stories in translation that are truly transcendent. If you want the best that the horror genre can offer, this is the book for you. It's definitely the book for me!" - Ann VanderMeer, co-editor of The Weird and The Big Book of Modern Fantasy"[A]mbitious, pioneering . . . None of this anthology's unsettling fiction [...] has ever been available before in English. The tales themselves, like Robert Frost's woods, are lovely, dark and deep." - Michael Dirda, Washington Post"A grand guignol of horrific oddities from across the world ... The range of stories presented suggests no one will be without something to love." - World Literature Today"The book is a veritable feast for horror lovers, especially for those sick of reading the same old genre cliches and of revisiting the usual, standardized atmospheres." - Mario Guslandi, British Fantasy Society"This book is a gift. While the language of horror is universal, its means of expression necessarily varies from culture to culture. The Valancourt Book of World Horror Stories brings us a collection of tales by outstanding writers from all over the world. These stories are by turns unsettling, violent, strange, and beautiful -- all the ingredients of great horror stories, from voices and perspectives we have lived too long without." - Nathan Ballingrud, award-winning author of North American Lake Monsters and Wounds"A remarkable range of contemporary horror fiction from across the globe, much of it translated into English for the first time. The literary quality of the stories is high across the collection ... A superb collection and hopefully the first of many." - Toronto Star"The Valancourt Book of World Horror Stories is a triumph! Horror's diaspora is on full glorious display, showcasing a cast of global terror-scribes that rival any in contemporary English-speaking countries. Groundbreaking and revelatory -- you're in for a bloody treat." - Michael Kelly, Shirley Jackson Award-winning editor of The Year's Best Weird Fiction and Shadows and Tall Trees
