Really charming read. I'd already been a fan of the TTT podcast, and was thrilled when they put out their first short story compilation. A fascinating collection, featuring original and occasionally twisted takes on the horror genre. Also: It includes "Chair", by Martin Mundt, which is full-stop the best bit of short fiction, any genre, that i've read in the past year.
A must read. Buy it now.

You should not be reading this review.
The table of contents of this book is nearly a Who's Who of modern horror. The names contained in this volume are so luminous, and the quality of work they contribute so nonpareil, that it is almost an insult for the reader to question whether it is worth buying this book, even so far as to read what another reader has to say about it. There's not one whit I can say about Gene Wolf or Joe Lansdale or John Shirley...just to sample a few...that will add anything to the legend that precedes them, and any one of the contributions in this book is, in itself, worth the price of admission. And so, for the simple reason that the value of this book, from it's gloriously lurid cover through to it's final author bio, is beyond question or reproach, you should not be reading this review.
That and the sad fact that the minute you spend reading this review is one less minute spent reading the book.
