Una buena recopilación de cuentos... como siempre pasa, algunos me gustaron mucho mas que otros, pero es un libro recomendable, me gustó.
A collection of horror stories written in the mid eighties. My favorites:

The Monster by Joe Haldeman
A soldier tries to defend himself against accusations of murder, but the accusations are the least of his worries.

Goodbye Dark Love by Roberta Lannes
This is the kind of story that Night Gallery would have shown if it was on Cinemax.

They're Coming For You by Les Daniels
Mr. Bliss' wife is having an affair, so he kills her and her lover. Best unexpected ending in the book.

Lapses by Chelsea Quinn Yar
Thankfully picked up - and devoured - early enough in my horror writing career, this turned me towards a whole slew of writers I'd never read before and contains some terrific, challenging fiction.

Virtually every story is worthy of a read but I do have some standouts:

Lacunae, by Karl Edward Wagner
Goodbye, Dark Love, by Roberta Lannes (still, in 2011, one of my favourite short stories ever)
Vampire, by Richard Christian Matheson
Lost Souls, by Clive Barker

A terrific collection, a milestone of the g
