science fiction awards database
Datlow: Horror Bests <— Anthologies —> Guran: Anthologies

Beginning one year after Rich Horton's SF & Fantasy annuals for Prime Books, Paula Guran's Dark Fantasy & Horror annuals for the same publisher function as companions to Horton's. Most of Guran's book introductions wrestle with the definitions, or lack of definitions, of dark fantasy and horror. Format and placement of story introductions and author bio's vary from volume to volume.

Most often reprinted authors: Caitlin R. Kiernan (9), Angela Slatter and Stephen Graham Jones (8 each), Priya Sharma, Steve Rasnic Tem, Kaaron Warren (6 each).
