Best Horror of the Year Volume Eleven

Cover Reveal and Table of Contents:

Yesterday Ellen Datlow, the queen mother of horror acquisitions, shared the table of contents for The Best Horror of the Year Volume Eleven, and today over on Twitter she showed us the new cover to go with it. Ink Heist has absolutely no permission to share either one with you, but we’re happy to take a chance ripping them off and doing so anyway. We’re over the moon with excitement about this one and you should be too. This series of anthologies has become the most iconic annual release of it’s type and one that virtually every fan and professional in the industry looks forward to with anticipation and more than a little impatience. Feast your ravenous eyes on this cover and stick around after for the uber exciting ToC. If you’re looking for only the best in the genre, Ellen Datlow and Night Shade Books have got you covered.
