Phobic: Modern Horror Stories

Edited by Andy Murray

New edition for 2020.

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.


"A rewarding anthology" - The Guardian

"An effective collection" - The Independent on Sunday

"A stunning collection that could give you goosebumps even in the height of summer." - Leeds Guide

"One of the best anthologies of its kind." - Stephen Volk
