The Doll Collection: Seventeen Brand New Tales of Dolls, edited by Ellen Datlow. Tom Doherty, 2015

I picked this book up without even investigating it much; as far as I’m concerned, most dolls are creepy on their own, even without a scary story written about them. The list of authors in this anthology is impressive, containing Joyce Carol Oates, Pat Cadigan, and many other award winning writers of fantasy and horror. The dolls cover a gamut of androids, ventriloquist dummies, regular baby dolls, poppets, imaginary dolls, dolls that hold emotions, and many more. Not all the stories are horrific, but all are at the very least odd. And I mean that in a good way. Editor Datlow always does a great job of selecting stories for her collections
