    • It’s a great book! It’s editor Ekaterina Sedia has story collections and novels and other anthologies out there. She’s a first-rate writer. You might also like the two big horror fiction studies/anthologies edited by the late David G. Hartwell: The Dark Descent and Foundations of Fear. I’ll post those so you can check them out.
