Last year, about this time, I put together a table of contents for a non-existent anthology of short horror fiction. I had such a good time that I've decided to do so again, and I wanted to get it in before October so interested parties could track down any of these stories in time for the Halloween season. Just like last year I've tried to get a wide range of horror, past and present. I try to steer clear of labels like 'best', so these are some of my favorite horror stories, the ones that creeped me out and lingered in my mind after the lights were out. Feel free to send suggestions for your own favorites and if you haven't read some of these, give them a try. Once again, 13 is the unlucky number of stories for this collection of the macabre.
