First, there will be a review of The Spectral Book of Horror Stories in the latest issue of Black Static magazine, due out very soon, if not already so. As usual, the write-up was put together by Peter Tennant, and it ends with the words:

“… one of the most compelling anthologies of last year, one in which quality is key note, and I hope this marks the start of an anthology series that will live long and prosper.”
