This is my third collection of Fowler's short fiction and the first one that I'd say was mislabeled as horror by the library system.

love Fowlers style - seemlingly ordinary if not boring stories to begin with/ at times which develop into sinister or strange outcomes; the book is aptly named 'The Devil in Me' as the devilish side of characters come out when you least expect it.

An interesting collection by the Bryant & May author.
A number of quite interestingly constructed stories. Some were very good. I particularly enjoyed "At Home in the Old Pubs of London", "Crocodile Lady", "The Beacon" & "Seven Dials."
This is the second collection of Mr. Fowler's stories that I've read and I have several more to read. Enjoyable.
