"A train is a perfect metaphor for an anthology, everyone seated inside the same container, but each passenger with their own story. Editor-publisher Trevor Denyer, one of the key figures in British horror for the past few decades, has memorialized that connection with his latest publication, the themed anthology, Railroad Tales. As with all of Trevor's releases, the anthology includes a mix of some of the most respected names in contemporary genre fiction, including Allen Ashley, Gary Cousins, Simon Bestwick, and Andrew Hook, as well as rising stars like Susan York. The 23 diverse stories contained in this train rumbling through the night, large side windows rushing past moonlit fields and bright city lights, are filled with the hopes, monotony, anxiety, revelations, and horrors, of all train trips. Trevor's anthology perfectly captures, seat after seat, story after story, one of the primary themes of horror fiction: If something can go wrong, it will go wrong. Highly recommended."
