Ya know in the world of horror there tends to be certain trends. Remember a while back there were vampires everywhere? Anne Rice came along, then other writers all seemed to be doing vampires. Then it seemed like there were zombies everywhere. I noted as we were reading for Six Guns Straight From Hell 3 that we were seeing one hell of a lot of monsters--far more than I've ever seen on any project I've edited. I do not know if that is an indicator of an emerging trend or there just were a lot of monsters sent in. I guess we'll see. But folks will get a look at some monsters when Six Guns comes out.
On another trend, we didn't see much in the way of ghosts. That's not really a trend. I never get many ghosts, even though ghost stories are my personal favorite type of horror. I've long believed our British friends like ghost stories better than Americans. /but western ghost stories simply do not come along very often.
