Thrillers 2
edited by Robert Morrish

Featuring: Gemma Files, Caitlín R. Kiernan, Tim Waggoner, and R. Patrick Gates

About the Book:
This volume marks the long-overdue return of a dark fiction series that debuted in 1993. After a fourteen year hiatus, Thrillers is revived with a star-studded second volume.

Within these pages, you'll find terror, suspense, and mystery that range from quietly menacing to shockingly graphic, wildly fantastic to grimly realistic. It's all here, with one universal ingredient: a well-told story.

The formula for the Thrillers series is deceptively simple: we invite four of the genre's most popular authors to each contribute 20,000 words of original, never-before-been-published fiction. We add insightful Afterwords by each author, along with striking illustrations by a brilliant artist. The end result is a wonderful showcase for the finest of today's short fiction.
