Shivers is edited by Richard Chizmar. This is an award nominated anthology that contains almost two dozen short stories from today's hottest horror writers. The writers include Bentley Little, Douglas Clegg, Jack Ketchum, Edward Lee, Simon Clark, Ray Garton, Graham Masterton, Jay Bonansinga, David B. Silva, and many more. This anthology is made up of both rare reprints and original dark fiction. This anthology is one of the best around. Most of the stories are scary and great, but some are not that good. My favorite short story out of the entire anthology would have to be Ice Box or Always Traveling, Never Arriving. Simon Clark's The Hand of Glory was pretty good too.

Shivers is only in hardcover and paperback format. The book has already sold out, but you can find it on the second hand market for a reasonable price. It is well worth the money. What is more, you might want to read this with the light on because some of the stories are disturbing.

I highly recommend this book to fans of horror and short stories!

5/5 stars!
