Datlow Shares Cover for Best Horror of the Year Volume Twelve

Editor Ellen Datlow has unveiled the cover for The Best Horror of the Year volume Twelve.

With each passing year, science, technology, and the march of time shine light into the craggy corners of the universe, making the fears of an earlier generation seem quaint. But this light creates its own shadows. The Best Horror of the Year chronicles these shifting shadows. It is a catalog of terror, fear, and unpleasantness as articulated by today’s most challenging and exciting writers.

It will be released October 6. Available for preorder here.

  1. This cover shows the overlap between horror and science-fiction? It wouldn’t look out of place on something like Raymond E. Feist’s Magician series! Very nice 🙂
