And now readers have a new reason to be afraid. One hundred new reasons! (Published: 2004) Bram Stoker Award Finalist

5 Discouraging at Best [MultiFormat]
by John Lawson
  Already known for his works of speculative fiction, author John Edward Lawson uses Discouraging at Best to take a look at the "real" world. On the pages within are five interlinked tales that, when pieced together, paint a panorama of apathy, greed, and manipulation. We follow the self-inflicted plight of working-class families and their efforts to step on others in the race to get ahead. We watch the petty wars of Nobel laureates. We become immersed in the minds of those caught in an ankle-bite... more info>> (Published: 2007)

12 Pseudo-City [MultiFormat]
by D. Harlan Wilson
  In Pseudofoliculitis City nothing is as it seems and everything is as it should be. Today's forecast calls for extreme confrontation, with sandwich flurries and the threat of handlebar mustaches to the west. By turns absurd and surreal, dark and challenging, Pseudo-City exposes what waits in the bathroom stall, under the manhole cover and in the corporate boardroom, all in a way that can only be described as mind-bogglingly irreal.

13 Sick: An Anthology of Illness [MultiFormat]

14 Tempting Disaster [MultiFormat]
by John Lawson, Simon Logan, Michael Hemmingson
  This anthology from the fringe examines our culture's obsession with taboos and the added temptation that forbidden pleasures bring. Warnings of danger and peril only heighten our desire for those things we have been told are bad, wrong and have been warned against doing. Post-modernists and surrealists come together in these pages with renegade horror and sci-fiction authors to re-envision what is "acceptable." By turns humorous and horrific then shocking and alluring, the authors dissect those... more info>> (Published: 2005) Year's Best Fantasy and Horror Honorable Mention

15 Terror-Dot-Gov [MultiFormat]
by Harold Jaffe
  As in Harold Jaffe's two previous "docufiction" collections, False Positive and 15 Serial Killers, the author of Terror-Dot-Gov selects then "treats" his texts such that the reader is incapable of distinguishing between fact and fiction. That ambiguity permits Jaffe to cunningly tease out the contradictions and subtexts of official "news" or "information" and torque it into what it so often is fundamentally: jingoism, xenophobia and propaganda. Jaffe's subject in Terror-Dot-Gov is not the everyw... more info>> (Published: 2005)
