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.


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.”



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.


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.”
