    1. Once again, amazed at the variety of stories in the Karl Edward Wagner collections. If only I'd discovered these about ten years ago. Anyone new to the horror genre - especially young writers - could do far worse than cutting their teeth on these stories. In fact, it's a shame (I imagine it'd be a Rights nightmare) that somehow all of these anthologies, and the Shadows, Whispers, and Masques collections couldn't be released as ebooks for a younger horror generation.

    2. Three and a half stars. When I was 12 years old, I got my hands on The Year's Best Horror Stories Volume 18, and I remember the cover perfectly, a head getting squeezed between converging walls. That was my first introduction to Karl Edward Wagner, haha.I think these stories were from 1986, and have some of my favorites (David Schow, Brian Lumley) and also a lot of forgettable stories. My favorite was called, "Bird in a Wrought Iron Cage," about an evil disembodied hand that predicts stocks and [...]

    4. On page 172 of 300- the first story is my favorite. The rest have been boring, endings really pathetically written. I personally wouldn't recommend this book. I love horror stories/movies but this isn't scary, freaky or entertaining. Disappointed .

    5. This book should be renamed The Year's WORST Horror. I've never read such a lousy compilation in my life. There was one, maybe two decent stories, but they didn't show up until I was more than halfway through. Obviously 1987 wasn't a stellar year for the horror genre.
