Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Chizmar's horror anthology series rolls merrily or, rather, scarily along. The contributors constitute the usual blend of genre stars (Straub, King, Tuttle) and up-and-comers, and the stories are uniformly fine. They range from novellas, including King's The Crate (adapted for the screen in the anthology film, Creepshow) and Straub's A Special Place (a spin-off from the novel A Dark Matter), to very short pieces, such as Wayne Allen Sallee's Ghost Writer in My Eye, narrated by a character in another writer's stories, and Brian Keene's Waiting for Darkness, barely a page long but sure to stick in your mind for a troublingly long time. While some stories have a fantasy element, others are full-on, real-world horror; for instance, Blake Crouch and Jack Kilborn's Serial, about a guy who kills hitchhikers, a female hitchhiker who kills whoever picks her up, and what happens when they meet (like others in the book, this story is definitely not for the squeamish). The Shivers anthologies have always been indispensable for genre fans, and this one is no exception.--Pitt, David Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This sixth more or less annual mix of reprint and original stories celebrates some of the best and brightest talents who contribute regularly to Chizmar's genre-leading magazine Cemetery Dance. Stephen King tops the list with "The Crate," a darkly funny monster-on-the rampage tale rarely reprinted since its first publication in 1979. Lisa Tuttle's "Bits and Pieces" is a deft and disturbing fantasia on the battle of the sexes, and Peter Straub's novella "A Special Place: The Heart of a Dark Matter" is a grim tale whose stand-alone incarnation was named one of 2010's best books by PW. The other 18 stories, which include work by Glen Hirshberg, Melanie Tem, Brian Hodge, and David B. Silva, run the gamut from supernatural terror to psychological suspense, and from subtle dark fantasy to violence and gore. The uniformly high quality of writing makes this volume a must for any horror fan. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
