The New Uncanny

Modern Horror Stories
An anthology of stories edited by

In 1919 Sigmund Freud published an essay that delved deep into thetradition of horror writing and claimed to understand one of itsdarkest tricks. Like a mad scientist, he performed literary vivisectionon a still-breathing body of work, exploring its inner anatomy, andpulling out mysterious organs for classification. His aim: to presentto the world a complete theory of 'das unheimliche', the uncanny.

In the spirit of this great experiment, 14 leading authors havehere been challenged to write fresh fictional interpretations of whatthe uncanny might mean in the 21st century, to update Freud's famouschecklist of what gives us the creeps, and to give the hulking canon ofuncanny fiction a shot in the arm, a shock to the neck-bolts...
