Riassunto: This is the ultimate feast of fear by a host of horror writers such as Robert Bloch, Ray Bradbury, Ramsey Campbell, and others. Twenty-four macabre tales include the nerve-twisting novelette The Mist by Stephen King. Previously published in mass market by Bantam.

Recensione: Dark Forces is one of the greatest collections of original horror stories published since World War II, and it may prove to be one of the most influential anthologies of its kind, ever. Edited by award-winning editor (and recognized authority) Kirby McCauley, this was the first superstar collection of famous horror writers. It has been often imitated but never surpassed. McCauley was inspired by another landmark collection; his goal was to publish an anthology "with the same scope and dynamism of Harlan's Ellison's Dangerous Visions, but in the supernatural horror field." Dark Forces succeeds on every level, especially in the selection of the 24 contributors, a "Who's Who" from across the spectrum of imaginative literature: Richard Matheson, Dennis Etchison, Ramsey Campbell, Ray Bradbury, Robert Bloch, Joyce Carol Oates, Isaac Bashevis Singer. Oh, yes, also found here is the first appearance of an unforgettable short novel called "The Mist" by an up-and-comer named Stephen King. Dark Forces belongs on the shelf of anyone who desires the very best the field has to offer. --Stanley Wiater

Descrizione libro MacDonald Futura Publishers, 1981. Soft Cover. Condizione libro: Acceptable. Creased spine, well read title. 1. The Late Shift by Dennis Etchison - Pretty freaky story to begin with. Two friends get into town after a while and run into an old acquaintance working the night shift at a convenience store. He seems dazed and unwell so they leave and follow him only to discover a strange operation going on between the local hospital and a television production company. (3/5) 2. The Enemy by Isaac Bashevis Singer - Well, this has me stunned. I pretty much had this summed up as a ghost story and followed the clues, figuring I knew what was up and how it would end. But it didn't. And now I'm at a loss. Hmmmm. Entertaining. Well-written. (4/5) 3. Dark Angel by Edward Bryant - A professional witch gets revenge on her highschool sweetheart twenty years later. Not my type of thing. (2/5) 4. The Crest of Thirty-Six by Davis Grubb - I certainly wouldn't call this horror. I didn't much care for it either. A story of power, reincarnation, love and . catfish. (1/5) 5. Marke Ingestre: The Customer's Tale by Robert Aickman - One will need to be familiar with a famous story to get this one. I was, sort of, but had to look it up to be sure. Not that great. (2/5) 6. Where the Summer Ends by Karl Edward Wagner - This is a longer story than the others so far. It's a silly story really that builds up to its shock ending. A few people live in a slum area, and the story feels to be taking place in the future, where an ornamental grass has run wild and is taking over vacant lots, fields, etc. Didn't do it for me. (2.5/5) 7. The Bingo Master by Joyce Carol Oates - Oates is a fine writer and this is the best story in the collection so far but I would not call it horror by any means, perhaps noir or Gothic. A 39-year old spinster walks into a bingo hall determined to lose her virginity that evening. This is a story of identity; we cannot pretend to be who we are not without consequence and others may not be whom they appear to be. The story continuously shifts and didn't end how I thought it would, even after I'd changed my opinion. (4/5) 8. Children of the Kingdom by T.E.D. Klein - Now we come to the first novella in the collection. This was a nice long story that I really enjoyed and it clearly fit the horror genre. I've never heard of this author before and will have to look him? up. A man puts his grandfather into a seniors manor in the city after he's had a minor stroke but no longer able to live on his own. He goes to visit him each week and finds that the gf has taken to spending his days in the neighbourhood on some steps with a large black woman and an old retired Costa Rican priest. It takes a very long time before anything creepy happens in the story but every now and then we get a hint at what that might possibly be. I won't say more as the enjoyment is in seeing the story unfold. (5/5) 9. The Detective of Dreams by Gene Wolfe - I just didn't get this. I was interrupted and had to read it in two sittings, maybe that had something to do with it. However, minutes after finishing, I haven't a clue what it was about. (1/5) 10. Vengeance Is by Theodore Sturgeon - A short but intense story told in two voices about an incident that has already happened. A brutal rape and the effect it had on both the victims and the violators. (4/5) 11. The Brood by Ramsey Campbell - I was looking forward to this one as I've wanted to read this author and I wasn't disappointed. Pure horror. A man watches an old woman lingering about on the street from his bedroom window in the early evening; she often lures stray animals to her dilapidated home. When she disappears, being a vet, he is concerned more about what may have become of the animals and investigates. Creeeeeepy! (5/5) 12. The Whistling Well by Clifford D. Simak - I've read several shorts by Simak now and am very fond of his work. This one was no exception. A paleontologist author is summoned by his ancient auntie to write a family history for her of one particular line before she dies a. Soft Cover. Codice libro della libreria 132460
