The cover describes my childhood perfectly. Always in bed, under a bunch of blankets reading books that gave me the creeps! Bruce is one of my all-time favorite authors. His stories cut straight through all the seriousness of life and just entertain and tingle straight up and down your spine.
Another of Mr. Coville's books that was checked out from the library too many times as a kid.
I loved this book as a kid!
This is a good collection of short stories about monsters. The best ones have those alarming surprise endings made so famous by O. Henry. All of Coville's collections are pretty solid if you're looking for lighthearted amusement.
While there are several good stories in here, like Uncle Joshua and the Grooglemen, the 5 stars I gave it are really based on the best short story I've ever read: Timor and the Furnace Troll.

I really like'd this book it takes some surprising twists that i like. For example, it was crazy how the monster turned into Jack's dads and he almost made him amenable.
A childhood favorite of mine.
the scariest part was bloody mary!
A favorite bedtime read as a child!
I love these anthologies.
