Stories about brutal subjects. Thoroughly unpleasant. Do not really understand why Snow White, Blood Red recommended this in it's introduction-- I get that the title story is LOOSELY based on the fairy tale of the same name, but I wasn't really prepared to be reading about kids being sexually molested.

Incredibly horrifying stories and disturbing characters are a testament to Peter Straub's ability. Don't read these after dark.

Peter Straub was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on 2 March, 1943, the first of three sons of a salesman and a nurse. The salesman wanted him to become an athlete, the nurse thought he would do well as either a doctor or a Lutheran minister, but all he wanted to do was to learn to read.
