Product Details


Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Wagner's second collection contains 11 horror stories, most of which are diverting if not actually horrifying. "Neither Brute Nor Human" is a tale of two writers who make it big, one of whom is really drained by his success; "Into Whose Hands" is an account, with very sinister overtones, of a day in the life of a psychiatrist in a state mental hospital; "Old Loves" makes gentle and not so gentle fun of the fanatic fans of the old Avengers television series; "The Last Wolf" is a sad tale of the future in which people have almost ceased to read; "Sign of the Salamander" is a well-executed pastiche of 1930s pulp magazine hero stories; "Blue Lady, Come Back" is an expert mix of detective story and supernatural story; and "Lacunae" concerns a drug that expands the consciousness a bit beyond its limits.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deceptively simple, wonderfully captivating Jan. 21 2004
Format:Paperback
After being a fan of Karl Edward Wagner's Year's Best Horror anthologies for DAW publishing I decided to give this anthology a try. Though I confess that I didn't realize all the stories in the tome were penned by Wagner himself. However, it was a very pleasant turn of events. The horror contained in these stories is subtle and insidious. Within the first few pages you're completely hooked. This book is hard to put down. The characterization is such that you find yourself wanting to know what happens to these people. The plot is winding and intriguing.
I'd like to be able to tell you " If you're a fan of so and so author you'll enjoy this book," but I can't do that. Wagner is unlike any other horror writer. His style is refreshing and just different enough to completely stand out.
If you have a chance, snap up this out of print gem. You'll be rereading it time and time again.
