As stated in her introduction to Inferno, Ellen Datlow asked her favorite authors for stories that would "provide the reader with a frisson of shock, or a moment of dread so powerful it might cause the reader outright physical discomfort; or a sensation of fear so palpable that the reader feels compelled to turn on the bright lights and play music or seek the company of others to dispel the fear." Mission accomplished.
Datlow has produced a collection filled with some of the most powerful voices in the field: Pat Cadigan, Terry Dowling, Jeffrey Ford, Christopher Fowler, Glen Hirshberg, K. W. Jeter, Joyce Carol Oates, and Lucius Shepard, to name a few. Each author approaches fear in a different way, but all of the stories' characters toil within their own hell.
An aptly titled anthology, Inferno will scare the pants off listeners and further secure Ellen Datlow's standing as a preeminent editor of modern horror.

Bait and switch
The description is pure bs their is nothing shocking here. Buy occultation to hear the forest the rest of these stories are derivative drivel. Datlow regurgitates stories from other anthologies this is the most disappointed I've been in an audiobook because it was touted
as something it wasn't
