Inhaltsangabe: The ghosts of lonesome British soldiers wander the rubble-strewn beach of Dunkirk. A black wave grows to devour a Japanese fleet. Only divine intervention can save the citizens of a charred Dresden. Something dark prowls the bowels of the Fuhrer's bunker. Radioactive mutants hunt fresh flesh through the streets of Hiroshima. In the pulp tradition of Weird War Tales, and filled with mystery, madness and the macabre, A DARK AND DEADLY VALLEY hovers along the borderland between horror and history. Editor Mike Heffernan has brought together horror's best-known authors to explore the violence of the second world war and its lasting affect on collective memory. They report back from the fright-filled front lines to illuminate the past with a dark light, put fresh meat on its bones and make it come alive through shock and suspense. So Have your Enfields clutched tight, boys, your bayonets fixed. And keep your heads low. There's some dark stuff lurking in these pages.
Rezension: Most theme anthologies go flat quicker than a six-buck bottle of champagne. The bad ones veer off into self-parody long before the reader hits the last page, and even some of the good ones wear out their welcome before the final tale is spun. But I'm happy to report that isn't the case with A DARK AND DEADLY VALLEY. This collection of weird World War II tales delivers both the heat of battle and the bitter cold of its aftermath. It's front-loaded (for Nazi swine), tough in the ranks, with a B-24 Liberator (and a real live warbird) coming in strong at the end. If you're looking for stories with the power to both wound and thrill, and writers who'll give you at various turns action, drama, and a straight, unflinching look at the human animal... well, look no further. This one's for you. --Norman Partridge, Stoker Award winner and author of DARK HARVEST
