Little Red's Tango incorporates a vampire story, miracle legends, a saint's legend, an epistle, beatitudes, and jazz minutiae within a contemporary faux-gospel.

Lapland, or Film Noir is a journey to a place of the dark, paranoid crime movies made in Los Angeles between 1948 and 1956, which Straub calls one of the most compelling periods in American film history.

The Geezers is a fascinating exercise in withholding everything that might explain what the protagonists and their friends were up to, and describing instead their reactions to the consequences of the unstated actions. It is Straub at his best.

Donald Duck is a surreal study of how a family can be changed irrevocably by the decisions of one reckless member.

The final tale, Mr. Aickman's Air Rifle reveals itself in clever homage as Straub deliberately assumes the mantle of a great and respected elder, with felonious intentions.

    " As the title says, 5 stories. Each are very different but they all seemed dull to me. Nothing very memorable. The one about Donald Duck was amusing at least. I didnt hate them, they just don't seem memorable to me. "

    " Finished the first story "little red" ... not my cup of tea ... enough for me. "

    " Two real favourites here: 'Little Red's Tango' and 'Mr Aickman's Air-rifle'. Clever stuff. "

    " Terrific and varied collection. The only one I wasn't that thrilled about was DONALD, DUCK. The rest of the stories were amazing and challenging, which I love. My favorites were LITTLE RED'S TANGO and MR. AICKMAN'S AIR RIFLE. To me, those stories represent what Straub does best. Floored by them. "
