You know the drill by now. In Black Static #19 I reviewed anthologies and nothing but anthologies. Unfortunately space did not permit discussion of every story, but by way of a consolation prize, and for the benefit of those who may want to know if a particular author was included, I've been reproducing the Table of Contents for each volume on this blog. These are the last two.

And with that I am done with listing the contents of anthologies, but there are a few more days of 'Anthology Month' to run here on the Case Notes blog, and I am still interested in hearing from anthology editors past and present about their favourite horror anthologies (as it means less work for me to do). We've had some interesting stuff so far, but more is always welcome. Take a look at our previous contributions, and then should you wish to take part send me something via An invitation is not necessary, and in fact I'm not sending out any more invitations, so if you haven't been asked as yet, then you won't be (no offence intended - time is limited). Contributions are welcome from almost everyone who has, or is about to, edit an anthology.

Those from whom contributions are not welcome, include known plagiarists, misogynists, homophobes, racists and people who like Showaddywaddy (the last is a personal bias, but it's my blog so I get to make the rules).
