Summary
Multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author Jonathan Maberry compiles more than twenty stories and poems--written by members of the Horror Writers Association--in this terrifying collection about worst fears.

What scares you? Things that go bump in the night? Being irreversibly different? A brutal early death? The unknown?

This collection contains stories and poetry by renowned writers such as R. L. Stine, Neal and Brendan Shusterman, and Ellen Hopkins--all members of the Horror Writers Association--about what they fear most. The stories include mermaids, ghosts, and personal demons, and are edited by Jonathan Maberry, multiple Bram Stoker award winner and author of the Rot & Ruin series.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Despite the title, very few of the stories in this collection are overtly frightening; instead, they focus on what's scary in there, as each of 21 authors mine concepts of fear and the strange ways it can manifest. A surprising number of the stories deal with technology: Neal and Brendan Shusterman pen a tale of a boy who effectively loses his parents to a video game, while Brenna Yovanoff explores the experiences of a girl harassed in an online role-playing game who finds this sort of attack isn't limited to the cyberworld. Antiheroes abound, and many of the other stories are intensely tied to family Rachel Caine's Corazón Oscuro, Ilsa J. Bick's Bearwalker, Christopher Golden's What Happens When the Heart Just Stops and several others, including Lucy A. Snyder's evocative Shadowtown Blues, are in verse. Not every story succeeds this is a particularly large collection, after all but the ones that do will surely leave readers with, if not quite fear, certainly a deep, lingering sense of unease.--Reagan, Maggie Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: ""Being alone, being ignored, not fitting in, peer pressure... man, there are so many kinds of fear out there," writes editor Maberry in his introduction to this horror anthology, featuring short fiction and verse offerings from more than 20 members of the Horror Writers of America, including Cherie Priest, R.L. Stine, Ilsa J. Bick, and Kendare Blake. Ghost stories and brushes with Death mingle with modern terrors like addictive video games and cyber-stalkers to provide a wide range of unsettling, chilling tales. Some stories are easy to relate to, such as Carrie Ryan's "What Happens to Girls Who Disappear," about a girl who just wants to be special, or Zac Brewer's "Death and Twinkies," about a boy contemplating suicide on a bridge. Others pump up the adrenaline, like Christopher Golden's "What Happens When the Heart Just Stops," set in a dystopian future where nighttime belongs to flying terrors. While most of the stories are solid, several end abruptly or ambiguously, making for a few too many unfulfilling moments. As a whole, though, this collection hits the mark. Ages 14-up.
