Staff Reviews

A new collection of waking nightmares from an utter master of the short story. Skins are taken off and put on anew. People disappear and their absences change everything. Strange happenings occur during any number of apocalypses. Murder becomes art. Monsters move among us. There are no limits to the imaginative horrors Brian Evenson can wreak upon the minds of his readers. 

— From Keaton recommends...


A newborn's absent face appears on the back of someone else's head, a filmmaker goes to gruesome lengths to achieve the silence he's after for his final scene, and a therapist begins, impossibly, to appear in a troubled patient's room late at night. In these stories of doubt, delusion, and paranoia, no belief, no claim to objectivity, is immune to the distortions of human perception. Here, self-deception is a means of justifying our most inhuman impulses--whether we know it or not.
