edited by Ellen Datlow

This fiendish anthology, complied by the horror genre’s most acclaimed editor, drags you into the twisted minds of modern literary masters at their fiendish best. Visionary storytellers fill this collection…


“The collection flows smoothly, capturing the pleasantly shivery dread of a round of ghost stories told by a fire […] Solid entries by Neil Gaiman, Caitlín R. Kiernan, and Joyce Carol Oates capture the mood perfectly and will thrill fans of the eerie.”

Publishers Weekly

“[HAUNTINGS is] apt to entertain and disquiet the horror fans.”

SF Site, Featured Review

“Datlow once again proves herself as a master editor. Her mission to broaden readers’ concepts of what a haunting can be is nothing short of a success, and the twenty-four stories on display run the gamut from explicitly terrifying to eerily familiar. Readers who wish to be haunted themselves should not miss this one. Highly recommended.”

Arkham Digest

“I have a short list of editors that I will buy an anthology of, regardless of whether or not I have even heard of the writers it contains, and Ellen Datlow is at the top of that list. She has this crazy knack of consistently putting together stellar anthologies and HAUNTINGS is no different.”

Horror Talk

“Award-winning horror editor Ellen Datlow offers readers a skillfully crafted, captivating collection with HAUNTINGS, an anthology of twenty-four reprinted ghostly tales from the last 25 years of horror literature.”

Rue Morgue

“That delicious sense of tantalization, of maybe and what if, impelled me through page after page, encountering intriguing characters, spine-shivering settings, and bits and pieces (sometimes literally…of corpses).”


“Take a gander at Ellen Datlow’s stellar collection HAUNTINGS and learn what being haunted really means […] There is no better way to combat the upcoming summer heat than with a fabulous collection of chills.”
