The Best Horror of the Year, Volume 2, Ellen Datlow (ed).
Night Shade Books, 2010
I'm really liking this aimless reading thing; I love being all over the map with my book choices. Good horror anthologies or novels are my secret indulgence; I love that feeling of dread that creeps up on me while I'm reading. I save these books for reading in the dead of night when it's quiet.
I read the first entry in this series at the end of February and it was just plain bad, so I was happily surprised to find that there had been an improvement in quality between the publication of the first and the second volumes. There are five little gems that shine above all of the rest in this book -- so if you're into horror, you might want to check it out.
