    Some of these stories were amazing, especially 'The Surgeon's Tale'. That one has definitely stuck with me. But I have to admit I skipped a few too.

    A poor entry in the series; King's The Ledge is a good thriller, and both Alan Temperley's Angel and Teacake and Florence in the Garden fulfil their remit; pride of place though, goes to J P Dixon's excellent and macabre The Surgeon's Tale.

    One of the weakest Pan Horror Anthologies as the series crumbled from grace under Paget. Stories by Dixon and Herbertson move away from simple blood and butchery but overall it's a completist buy One of the weakest Pan Horror Anthologies as the series crumbled from grace under Paget.

    3 stars overall as some stories are weak, worth reading though for Stephen King's The Ledge and Murray Pickles The Joonka Junka. 3 stars overall as some stories are weak, worth reading though for Stephen King's The Ledge and Murray Pickles The Joonka Junka.
