The stories collected here involve some disturbing subject matter and plot devices, but are still within the parameters of literary realism. At least one plot device (an extremely rare birth defect in which a baby is born with a second head attached to the main one) struck me as pure fabrication until I discovered that it is in fact a real thing. Most of these stories don't get that out of the ordinary, but all of them are enjoyably creepy without resorting to gimmickry.
