Richard Chizmar is the editor of Cemetery Dance both a uarterly magazine and a publishing house that specializes in horrordark fantasy As is obvious by the title Shivers VI is the sixth entry in a series of horrordark fantasy anthologies featuring original ie not previously published stories from a number of writers including Brian Keene Al Sarrantonio Lisa Tuttle Melanie Tem David Silva Peter Straub and Stephen King among others As always some stories struck me forcefully than others The anthology got off to a great start with Serial a collaboration between authors Blake Crouch and Jack Kilborn in which they ponder what might happen if a serial killer of hitch hikers picked up a serial killer hitch hiker nicely conflating two strong urban legends; and I also enjoyed Stephen King's Crate about what might be lurking in long untouched university storage rooms; Norman Prentiss' The Old Ways in which a modern young woman comes across some very old fashioned values in the small town to which she and her husband have moved; Like Lick 'Em Sticks Like Tina Fey the cleverly titled vampire story by Glen Hirshberg; Al Sarrantonio's Last which is science fiction than horror; and Lisa Tuttle's Bits and Pieces a delightful dark fantasy about what our lovers leave behind when they leave our lives The volume ends with Peter Straub's novella A Special Place The Heart of a Dark Matter which details the childhood and adolescent development of a serial killer; I found it well done if gory up until the end and then I felt uite disappointed because the story just stopped and I wanted Which I suppose can be seen as a positive response when you think about itObviously this anthology will not be to everyone's taste but if you have the stomach for it the writing is of a very high caliber throughout and you may find a new favourite author or three between its covers; recommended for those who can stand it
