This is a collection of short stories by Peter Straub. Each story was unique, to say the least. Some were rather disturbing, others weird, & some psychologically creepy. His stories reflect much thought into the thin line between sanity & insanity. Definitely interesting to read.

Thirteen unconnected short stories by Peter Straub. Some only a few paragraphs long, and some very odd.

Great surrealist fiction! For those of you who have read the Dark Tower series by Stephen King, check out the 'Bango Skank' reference in The Buffalo Hunter!
