    " Most of these stories fell so flat for me that I was sorry I'd bothered to read them, let alone pay for the book. "

    " Superior, literate horror from one of the great writers in any field. It starts with one of the weaker stories, but the perseverant reader will be rewarded. There's a full review at Suite101 "

    " These stories read like Straub played around with themes from his novels. Fair enough, but not good enough to match his usual strength. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Pat | 9/25/2013

    " A combination of 7 short stories, some more magic, some more terror. I got reeled in on the first story Ashputtle and would have liked to have continued with more of that story. Bunny Is Good Bread, horrific, very well written. Mr.Clubb and Mr.Cuff (stating the obvious in such a fun way) "
