Books like The Wicker Man and Harvest Home

I'm interested in fiction books reminiscent of The Wicker Man and Harvest Home. Horror or mystery stories of strange nature cults/paganism/mystery religions...Not so much stories of Da Vince Code or Name of the Rose but more the former two titles.

I'm trying to find a website. It was a collection of short horror fiction pieces, organized as a bestiary maintained by a secret government organization. It had entries for, I think, a giant preternaturally intelligent and malicious fish-like thing, a haunted subway train, and an orb that acted as a portable black hole or something like that. What was it?

Horror anthology recommendations

I'm looking for various horror anthologies -- numerous writers with no overarching subject such as "Zombies!" or "Vampires!". I have enjoyed a few such as Foundation of Fear, Prime Evil, Revelations, and 999.
