Horn Book Review

Thirteen authors offer suspenseful short stories full of supernatural and human horrors. Cannibal babies, evil doppelgangers, vampires, and more populate these tales with jump-inducing (if sometimes nonsensical) denouements. Well organized thematically, the collection will attract readers of contributors Peg Kehret, Heather Brewer, editor Stine, and others. James Rollins's "Tagger," blending techno-savvy, ancient Chinese tradition, and romance, is a standout. (c) Copyright 2011. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
