The Year's Best Horror Stories war eine jährlich erscheinende Anthologie des US-amerikanischen Verlags DAW Books.

Als Donald A. Wollheim 1971 zusammen mit seiner Ehefrau Elsie diesen Verlag gründete, war unter den ersten Veröffentlichungen - neben den Reihen The Annual World's Best SF und The Year's Best Fantasy Stories für die Genres Science-Fiction und Phantastik - die Reihe The Year's Best Horror Stories.

Dafür konnte Wollheim als verantwortlichen Herausgeber 1971 Richard Davis gewinnen, der diese Aufgabe bis 1973 innehatte. Nach einer Pause von zwei Jahren übernahm Gerald W. Page diese Aufgabe bis 1979 und Karl Edward Wagner führte diese Reihe bis zu seinem Tod 1994 fort.
