2015 has been a tremendous year for horror. Goosebumps finally got the film treatment it deserves, Stephen King released two new books, and Donald Trump briefly ran for president. Encapsulating the ghastly spirit of the year is editor extraordinaire Paula Guran’s newest anthology The Year’s Best Dark Fantasy & Horror 2015. Within these pages lurks fresh and freaky fiction from Nightmare Factory favorites Laird Barron, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Jeff Vandermeer, Stephen Graham Jones, and John Langan as well as new offerings from established masters like Kelly Armstrong, Brandon Sanderson, and Elizabeth Bear. This collection comprehensively catalogs the chaos of 2015 and salaciously celebrates the triumph of terror represented therein.
