There were some good stories in here as well as some ehh stories. I remember enjoying this quite a bit when I read it in high school.

I finished this book, but wasn't particularly impressed by it as a collection. It seemed to rely heavily on attempting to shock and disgust, rather than creating tense atmosphere or memorably creepy characters. Instead of being horrified, I was often vaguely irritated. I should also warn future readers that there is a lot of rape and violent sexual focus, enough that I sometimes wondered if that was one of the selection criteria, so if that is something that bothers you, I recommend steering clear. Still, there are some strong stories that stood out to me:

Poppy Z Brite's "The Sixth Sentinel" uses the romance-gone-horrific trope to good effect, as a ghostly lover conspires to bring the goth girl he has fallen for into his undead world.

"High Concept" by David Bischoff features a writer who would would do anything to get rid of his writer's block, and a friend who has an unconventional solution.

"Midnight Grinding" by Ronald Kelly feels like the grown-up version of a campfire story, and comes with excellent pacing.

"Ghosts of Christmas Present" by Kristine Kathryn Rusch is a gothic-y modern-day twist on the common retellings of "A Christmas Carol" and features a compelling main character.
