Pre Pub Book Buzz: Slasher Girls & Monster Boys edited by April Genevieve Tucholke

Ooh, I get the feeling this collection is the next one to be added to my favorite short stories list! Here's the description and contributing authors list from Goodreads to explain:

A host of the smartest young adult authors come together in this collection of scary stories and psychological thrillers curated by Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea’s April Genevieve Tucholke.

Each story draws from a classic tale or two—sometimes of the horror genre, sometimes not—to inspire something new and fresh and terrifying. There are no superficial scares here; these are stories that will make you think even as they keep you on the edge of your seat. From bloody horror to supernatural creatures to unsettling, all-too-possible realism, this collection has something for any reader looking for a thrill.

Fans of TV’s The Walking Dead, True Blood, and American Horror Story will tear through tales by these talented authors:

Stefan Bachmann
Leigh Bardugo
Kendare Blake
A. G. Howard
Jay Kristoff
Marie Lu
Jonathan Maberry
Danielle Paige
Carrie Ryan
Megan Shepherd
Nova Ren Suma
McCormick Templeman
April Genevieve Tucholke
Cat Winters

See what I mean?! Isn't that author list amazing? And it's horror shorts - doesn't get much better in my opinion!

Slasher Girls & Monster Boys is due out in August from Dial.

Hmmm. Not sure about this one for myself. I tend to shy away from horror. Sad because it seems people can't wait to get their hands on this one.
