Where does fear lurk in 21st century life?

In a technological age hardwired to keep information flowing and the unknown at bay, what irrationalities still linger for horror writers to tap into?

This anthology - the first in Comma's Modern Horror series - offers 15 very different responses to the question. From ancient curses kept alive in internet chat-rooms to malevolent children's TV characters acquiring lives of their own, Phobic shines a torch into the unlit areas of the modern subconscious and suggests the more we know, the more we realise how worried we really should be.
