Recommends it for: Teenagers and sci-fi fans.
This is one of those books I pick up and re-read every few years. And it has the distinction of being one of very few books I've loaned that's been returned. The collection of stories runs the gamut of sci-fi topics from creepy plant life to weird old ladies, but each story has a fresh, original feel. "Cynosure" is my favorite, about a hapless divorced housewife trying to keep up with the Joneses in a new neighborhood.
An enjoyable diversion.

I think I read this book in 1981 or thereabouts in a mad phase of horror short story reading, but the stories have stayed with me ever since, tugging at my hemline or unexpectedly poking at my subconscious ever since. I expected campy but got something entirely different. If you've never read Kit Reed, start here... especially connoisseurs of the short story.

In WHERE, Kit Reed's new novel, the entire population of a small island vanishes overnight. Everybody on Kraven Island is gone. Even they don't know WHERE.
SON OF DESTRUCTION (2013) "tells the story of the "thin line between an organised society and raw nature", and presents a compelling account of people torn by clan loyalty and made desperate by love, hate and loneliness." --The Guardian
