Thank you, Mr. Clegg for this treasure I found on my newly acquired Nook HD+ . I love a good book of short stories and a few poems in here as well. You also scare the living crap outta me, lol.... I never new this collection existed and read it easily in a sitting. Buyers always get their momeys worth with Douglas Clegg.

I am struggling through this book. Mr. Clegg either leaves me wanting more or too depressed to read further. The horror genre is about the unreal entering the real world...about monsters and hauntings...not about the psychological battles people fight when they are hopeless or crippled with grief. Everything is a symbol or analogy in this book that is mainly about clinical depression/mental illness. We have enough of that in reality. I want escape, entertainment...not a bout of deep depression when I read horror. I think I will just go re-read some King and some Koontz. I am tired of horror being some esoteric statement on the futility of life. That is presumptuous and speaks of the mental snobbery of the writer who sees himself as an artiste, a creator of the new and different. Where do you go, these days, to find a good story-teller?
