Summary

A collection of supernatural horror stories by a multiple award-winning master of the fantastic.   From the author of Swords and Deviltry and many other classic novels, a recipient of both the Hugo and Nebula Awards, this is a treasure trove of horrific tales, many of which remained out of print for decades after appearing in such magazines as Unknown, Thrilling Mystery, Startling Stories, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, and the acclaimed horror specialty magazine Whispers 13–14.   In addition to the title story, this collection also includes: “Cry Witch!” (1951), “I’m Looking for Jeff” (1952), “Ms. Found in a Maelstrom” (1959), “The Button Molder” (1979), “Dark Wings” (1976), and “The Enormous Bedroom” (2001), which is original to this volume.

    A tale of horror in which a pleasant sojourn down the Danube tumbles terrifyingly awry as the veil between this world and an unfathomably weird dimension is inadvertently pierced by an innocent pair of vacationers, "The Willows", arguably Algernon Blackwood's seminal contribution to supernatural literature, has had a lasting influence on the field. No less a personage than H. P. Lovecraft describing it as "...the greatest weird tale ever written." A reading will reveal a clear influence to one familiar with Lovecraft's work. The masterful handling of mystery and suspense that build to a quite satisfyingly unnerving crescendo may be particularly noted by the discerning aficionado of the genre.(Summary by Michael T. Robinson)

    Is it better to live a lie of perfection when the truth is too ugly to survive? 
    Meg wants a normal life. Her new artistic style, born in the depression of her mother's death, is poised to take the art world by storm, if she could just overcome the debilitating anxiety caused by the car accident that scarred her boyfriend, Austin. Encouraged by her therapist, Meg pushes outside her comfort zone to befriend Haley, a guest instructor at the university where Meg teaches. Haley is everything Meg wants to be: charismatic, confident, and perfect, but when Austin expresses his worry that Haley is changing Meg too fast, Meg kicks him out of her life. Or at least, she tries. 
    Kim Harrison, author of the number one bestselling urban fantasy Hollows series, brings to life a world terrifyingly near to our own, where what's real and what shouldn't exist twine together in the madness of a troubled mind desperate for a way out. But when the truth is revealed, the question remains, is it better to live a lie of perfection, or cleave to an ugly reality that will destroy you? 
    Contains mature themes.

"The Young Bull" is the story of a farmer on the Welsh border who is trapped in a hostile and combative marriage which is nonetheless charged with suppressed sexual tension. An episode where he is forced to do battle with his enraged bull and his wife steps into the fray to help serves both as an allegory of his marriage and the catalyst to breaking the barrier between the couple.
