Book Review: The Best Horror Of The Year, Volume Twelve, part 4

The Best Horror Of The Year Volume Twelve edited by Ellen Datlow, part 4


Nor Cease You Never Now

A tale of survivor guilt or something. This was not freighted with dread or grief. This was not especially disturbing.


Playscape

With grim fascination, unfolds a tale of a missing child and a bad place. This was very good.


Best Lines:

“Stroller set.”


“Pity casseroles.”


Adrenaline Junkies

Skydivers become chow for monsters. This wasn't good.


Best Lines:

“Daring the world to kill her.”


“Alley-meat.”


Watching

This was utterly nihilistic.


Best Lines:

“Want to fit but never will.”


“Work out what they're meant to do.”


“Always looking round, wondering if they got it right.”


Mr. And Mrs. Kett

Houseguests from hell pay a visit in this nice and eerie tale.


Below

2 boys bunking off school learn what lurks beneath the streets. Mmmmm.


Best Lines:

“Live or perish.”


“What's down there that finds a way out.”
