The Bleeding Edge: Dark Barriers, Dark Frontiers

William F. Nolan, Author, Jason V. Brock, Author . Cycatrix/Dark Discoveries $64.95 (288p) ISBN 978-0-9841676-1-6

Nolan (Science Fiction Origins ) and Brock (Totems and Taboos ) have put together a compelling anthology of dark short fiction that includes unused Twilight Zone scripts and unpublished work by the likes of Ray Bradbury and Richard Matheson. There's something for everyone in the 20 stories and scripts that span such genres as erotica (Nancy Kilpatrick's “Hope and the Maiden”), horror (Gary A. Braunbeck's “A Certain Disquieting Darkness”) and humor (Matheson's short screenplay “Madri-Gall”). Highlights include Bradbury's “Some of My Best Friends Are Martians,” John Shirley's violent ghost story “Just a Suggestion” and an excerpt from Dan O'Bannon's unproduced screenplay Omnivore . These pricy limited editions are aimed squarely at horror collectors, who will not be disappointed. (Nov.)
