Very good book.Some well know authors are present in this work but mostly they were authors that were unknown to me.I am not going to go into each story separately but just say that this was a very enjoyable read that I am sure that I will re-read it in the future.Another good book for my friends who do not like grue and over the top violence.

This is my other travel paperback. :) It is very good so far, and I love horror/suspense esp. written by women. I will be looking for some of these authors that I haven't read if they are good.

This one is definitely worth a read. At least 8 of the stories are very good.
