This comment from the book illustrates the scope of the book: “Our solution was to invite one hundred of the world’s top horror, science fiction and fantasy authors and critics to contribute a brief essay on his or her favourite horror book.” Some of the selections are quite famous; while others are very obscure. Each contributor is given long paragraphs at the end of the book. An index to the books, authors, and contributors is provided for easy location.
