Comments & Further Information

First US Trade (large size) paperback with a full 1 to 10 number sequence indicating a first printing of this edition. Edited by Bill Breedlove and John Everson. This is a collection of four stories from Lee Thomas, Gary McMahon, S G Browne and Michael Marshall Smith. “Life is fleeting. Things happen quickly. One moment you’re at the office, or maybe sitting in your living room; more of the same old, same old. And the next you’re gone. Forever. For the brave, here are sixteen tales of those sudden moments when life goes from light to dark, laughing to screaming, bad to worse. Scary to unspeakable. Lee Thomas Stoker-Award winning author, shares emotionally-devastating tales spanning the Victorian-Steampunk era like “The Dodd Contrivance” to the newest terror trawling Internet chat rooms in “Appetite of the Cyber Tribes” and more. Gary McMahon drawing favorable comparisons to Ramsey Campbell in his native England, shows just why in tales ranging from feverish nightmares in “The Ghost in You” to coldly-calculated terror in “Creep” and everything in between. S.G. Browne explores male sexual fantasies run amok in “Dream Girls,” science run amok in “Dr. Lullaby,” a charming small town run amok in “Lower Slaughter,” and, perhaps most terrifying, a writer run amok in “Lord of Words.” Michael Marshall Smith shows why he is an international sensation with pieces ranging from the thought-provoking “REMTemps” to the horrifying “What Goes on in Their Minds” to the whimsical “Dave 2 Beta 23.” IN STOCK FOR IMMEDIATE DESPATCH
