Do not miss this collection of stories. If you travel alot like I sometimes do, short stories can be more practical. For a quick read before meetings, or bedtime. This book is perfect. And the collection itself is great. It even features Dagon, from Lovecraft. A definate classic. But also look for Mimic. The story that inspired the movies. And, a fantastic tale about a dark swamp named Mive. All in all, I can't reccomend this book enough. It's never away from me when I go someplace.
