The Doll Collection is exactly what it sounds like: a
treasured toy box of all-original dark stories about dolls
of all types, including everything from puppets and poppets
to mannequins and baby dolls.
from life-sized clockwork dolls to all-too-human Betsy
Wetsy-type baby dolls, these stories play into the true
creepiness of the doll trope, but avoid the clichÃ©s that
often show up in stories of this type.Master anthologist
Ellen Datlow has assembled a list of beautiful and
terrifying stories from bestselling and critically acclaimed
authors such as Joyce Carol Oates, Seanan McGuire, Carrie
Vaughn, Pat Cadigan, Tim Lebbon, Richard Kadrey, Genevieve
Valentine, and Jeffrey Ford. The collection is illustrated
with photographs of dolls taken by Datlow and other devoted
doll collectors from the science fiction and fantasy field.
The result is a star-studded collection exploring one of the
most primal fears of readers of dark fiction everywhere, and
one that every reader will want to add to their own
collection. Stories in this anthology by: Stephen Gallagher,
Joyce Carol Oates,
Gemma Files, Pat Cadigan, Lucy
