4.0 out of 5 stars Old but still very tasty wine
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 November 2018
Readers beware: this is NOT a collection of NEW Horowitz’tales.
The cover is new but the tales were all (except one) previously published (for Instance in the 2010 ‘More bloody Horowitz).

The 2010 edition has beautiful illustrations (a big one at the beginning of each story - see, for example, the above photo of ‘She-Bay’) and an ‘intermission’ - a few extra-pages with a horror poem and crossword puzzle.

In the new 2018 edition all the illustrations and the ‘intermission’ have been left out (so there are no illustrations at all), but 1 new/other tale has been included: the ‘J Train’ (see photos of the contents tables).

So I basically bought a version of a book I already had, thinking (fooled by the new Tony Ross’ cover) I had bought a new collection of stories by the master.

That said the only new story in the book (J train’) is absolutely terrific, heavy on atmosphere, full of mystery and with a nice plot twist at the end.
Furthermore, I had only half-read the old book so I now had the chance to (re)discover a few more gems of stories (‘She-bay’. ‘Power’ and -to a somewhat lesser degree- also ‘Cobra’ being among the best).

I’ve read many horror anthologies over time and, although Horowitz is not the absolute best (I liked some of his earlier horror stories better), these tales are okay and all in all I’m happy I bought this book (mainly because of the 1 new story ‘J train’).

Let’s hope Horowitz (or Chris Priestley) will write some more horror shorts in the near furure!
