An excellent collection of short fiction. Sharply written, these stories have a mature sophistication and an air of darkness, but simultaneously balance those qualities with some playful aspect of childhood that still bears a sense of wonder in the face of the inexplicable and unknown. It's especially nice that some stories are accompanied by the illustrations that inspired them. I was sold on this book after reading only the author's introduction, in which he cites some seeds of inspiration from childhood: library books on the paranormal, old Bigfoot documentaries, and the 1970's TV show In Search Of... If thoughts of these give rise to fond nostalgia, you'll definitely find a familiar kinship in this book.
