Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Editors Datlow and Morton have filled this book with an assortment of Halloween treats whose horrors transcend their holiday setting.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Solid and refreshing, featuring great stories that don’t resort to overused tropes and revealing the full breadth of today’s horror, from surreal to creepy to full-blown, visceral terror. ” Booklist
“In the horror field it’s pretty much a given that every writer has at least one good Halloween story up his or her sleeve. Haunted Nights…bears this out. The stories offer a wide variety of approaches to Halloween and all its trimmings, and several are arguably among the strongest work that their authors have produced and are likely contenders for consideration for year’s-best roundups.” Locus
