Synopsis

From award-winning author and storyteller Jack Ketchum comes nineteen bleak stories of loss and pain. This is the author's newest collection, and includes his Bram Stoker Award-winning novella "Closing Time." Also included: "Returns," "Damned If You Do," "Station Two," "Elusive," "Papa," "The Fountain," "Do You Love Your Wife?", "At Home with the VCR," "Those Rockports Won't Get You Into Heaven," "Olivia: A Monologue," "Brave Girl," "Honor System," "Lighten Up," "Hotline," "Monster," "Consensual," "Seascape," and "Snarl, Hiss, Spit, Stalk."

"Though Stoker-winner Ketchum is best known for his novels of hardcore horror (Off Season, etc.), the 19 stories in this collection reveal his skill at crafting short and subtle mood pieces about everyday folk who find themselves wrestling with overpowering emotions that occasionally open them to macabre experience."
