From Publishers Weekly 1/19/2004: "This fifth volume -- the first in a decade -- features a healthy quotient of offbeat efforts that resist simple categorization." and "the range of themes that propel these uncommon tales -- personal alienation, religious intolerance, the quest for transcendence, the torture of hope -- expand the horror story's reach, and the wealth of relatively new writers featured is encouraging."
Twenty-five stories were selected out of over six hundred that were submitted that took several years to put together. Including Stephen King's new story "Stationary Bike" with it's only appearance anywhere. Also features authors John R. Platt, Holly Newstein, Adam Corbin Fusco, Barry Hoffman, Bill Gautheir, Whitt Pond, Jon F. Merz, Michael Canfield, Brian Freeman, Dominick Cancilla, Barbara Malenky, John McIlveen, Darren O.
