WILD JUSTICE, Ellen Datlow's latest anthology (previously published in the U.K. only as LETHAL KISSES) brings you eighteen stories of horror, sex, and revenge, acts of vengeance inspired by slights real and imagined, in the office, at home, in bed. If revenge is an 'eye for an eye', 'sweet', or 'a dish best served cold', you will find all of the variants here.
