Description of this Book

Many of us grew up on The Pan Book of Horror Stories and its later incarnations. For the first time in a decade or more, there's a successor: A Book of Horrors features brand-new, never-before-published stories by the international Grand Master of horror Stephen King, John Ajvide Linqvist, author of the cult hit Let the Right One In, award-winning playwright Robert Shearman, Sunday Times bestseller Michael Marshall Smith and many others. One word of warning: be sure to read this collection with the lights on!
