Either way, it really is good if you’re at all interested in short stories with a dark side. Obviously I must declare an interest, because my own story ‘The Other Woman’ is included. But I’ve been in anthologies in the past, and I’ve never felt as proud to be nestling among such a high-quality collection. Editor Colin Barnes has done a really good job.
My particular favourite so far (still a few more to read) is ‘Spider Daughter Spider’ by Jennifer Williams, which really spooked me and has a coldly devastating ending that will stick in your mind.
