Northern Frights

Northern Frights
Review by The Jabberwock, submitted on 15-Oct-1992

"Northern Frights" (Don Hutchison, ed.) 1992. Oakville, Canada: Mosaic Press. Northern Frights is a just released anthology of Canadian horror/dark fantasy with contributions by several famous and not so famous Canadian authors (Tanya Huff & Charles de Lint to name two).

Several stories centre around vampires, there are a couple of werewolf stories, and a whole lot of stories that take place during the winter (geez, are we really THAT cold?). Most of the stories are quite good, although (like any anthology) there are a couple of duds. It's a hardcover, selling for 19.95 Looneybucks.

I'm not sure if it's eventually going to come out in paperback or what it might cost in the States. I'm pleased with the purchase however.

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
