Definitely lives up to its name - these short stories are truly creepy! And a great, albeit brief, introduction to Coville's work, clearly, since I had not read any before and now plan to seek out plenty more (although I gather he doesn't always skew toward the scary).
I also want to add, just because, that this was my gateway drug to Smashwords. I had not heard of this site before an acquaintance - a Coville fan - mentioned him having stuff here. I think he was holding a sale perhaps? This was about 6 months ago now, and I only wish I hadn't sat on this book for so long after purchasing it at the time!
But in any case, I'm so glad I found Coville in this way. Thank you for the nightmares!
