From the bestselling author of the Song of Ice and Fire series, comes this chilling story of a werewolf.

When a string of grotesque killings begins to strike her small town, private detective Randi Wade becomes suspicious. The grisly murders remind her all too much of her own father's death over 20 years ago. Now there is a killer in town who not only slays his victims, but also takes their skin. Undaunted, Randi prods the police as the murders continue, each more brutal than the last. When a close friend suddenly becomes a target, he is forced to reveal a startling secret about himself and Randi is quickly pulled into a dark world within her own town where monsters exist and prey on the living.

    " I really loved this book. I'm a fan of short horror and erotic horror, and this book gave me just what I wanted. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 11/8/2013

    " 4 Stars for the collection. Breaking that down by author, I'd rate them this way: Dan Simmons - 4 1/2, Stephen King 3 1/2, George R. R. Martin - 5 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 9/10/2013

    " This gets five stars just for George R.R. Martin's werewolf novella. Everything else is just tasty frosting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Drew | 6/9/2013

    " Introduced me to Dan Simmons and George R.R. Martin. Some of my favorite short stories, although King's didn't do much for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stu | 5/31/2013

    " This book has possibly the greatest werewolf story ever written, if it was just that story it would get five stars, but let down by some of the other content. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Sammons | 12/22/2012

    " Loved this book to death, and my biggest surprise upon reading it years and years ago? The Martin and Simmons stories stole the show from the tales by King. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Flow Wampfler | 6/5/2012

    " I bought the book mostly for Stephen King's stories (which, it turns out, I had already read 2 of the 3) but ended up liking George R. R. Martin's "The Skin Trade" story the most. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol Holum | 10/10/2011

    " A mixed author collection that includes 3 stories by King which is of course why I picked it up. Enjoyed the whole book though. Stories also by Dan Simmons and George Martin. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trevor Taundry | 8/22/2011

    " A small collection of stories by famous authors. A good dip into book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Leighjane | 12/22/2010

    " I only like the final story called "Skin Trade" by George R.R. Martin. The rest of the book isn't worth reading. Slow stories that go nowhere. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J.E. Taylor | 11/1/2010

    " LOVED The Skin Trade - the other stories are good as well, but this is one story that has stayed with me for years. "

In the mid ’90s he returned to prose, his first love, and began work on his epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. He has been in the Seven Kingdoms ever since. Whenever he’s allowed to leave, he returns to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he lives with the lovely Parris, a big white dog called Mischa, and two cats named Augustus and Caligula, who think they run the place.
