I got this softcover from an online seller, after enjoying Issue 1. It's the second issue of a literary publication with a horror theme, and includes older stories as well as new ones, plus interviews and some non-fiction entries. Among my favorites:

Theodore Sturgeon's classic "It," a swamp-being-type story that features an enigmatic creature, the hapless beings that cross its path, and revelation that's intriguing but that doesn't detract from the horror of the final lines.

"These Things That Walk Behind Me" by David Surface, in which a man finds himself in a mental hospital after one nightmare too far breaks his lover's spirit. But it turns out that the things he's been seeing are really there, just... not visible to everyone. Will he find a way to rid himself of this unwelcome sight, or perhaps find a new reason for living by using it to aid others?

"The Calm" by James Dorr deals with a remote village where the wind blows most of the time - and where something horrifying descends whenever it stops.

The non-fiction article on the "Thriller" TV series, by Gary Gerani, which featured a number of episodes that I remember to this day. (The article also gives nods to other supernatural series of the time, from "Twilight Zone" to "One Step Beyond".)
