An entertaining look at horror writer's favorite horror stories. It was interesting to see who chose what. A lot of the old standbys were there as well as a few that I hadn't read before.

Asking a well-known writer to pick a favorite horror story made this collection a very good one. It's interesting to see what influences and preferences they have. The selected stories are very good and very scary.
