This is a diverse collection of short, uncanny tales perfect for Halloween or around a campfire. The subject matter ranges from the fanciful to the funny, from the eerie to the erotic and from the sweet to the startling. The anthology can be read one story at a time or all at once depending on the mood of the reader. The variety is sure to contain something for almost everyone's taste. I rather enjoyed most of the very quick reads, and I think fans of compilations will like this one.
