Rezension:

'Straub effortlessly plumbs the hearts and minds of a range of well-developed characters. Mixing stark realism with black comedy, and reverberating with echoes of Conrad, Melville and the Brothers Grimm, these excursions to the dark side of life set a high standard for the literature of contemporary magic terror.' Publishers Weekly 'Straub is not called a master of horror for nothing. In this collection of seven tales, ranging from the story of a grade school teacher with an evil secret to a Vietnam War grunt whose reality is "melting at the edges", Straub shows that horror comes in numerous forms - many of which are not so much frightening as deeply disturbing. . . Highly recommended for all horror collections.' Library Journal 'Peter Straub is the great classicist of horror fiction . . . a world-class author.' CLIVE BARKER
