really liked it

While better known as a novelist, Jack Ketchum proves himself to be extremely adept at short stories in this excellent volume. The tales are all well written and pack a powerful punch, but never succumb to the old "and then you woke up" and/or "Twilight Zone ironic ending you saw coming from a mile away" syndrome which frequently infects the horror short story.

There are genuine surprises to be had and the creepiness factor is delightfully amped up (if you like creepiness).

Highly recommended.
