Feeling trapped? No exits in your life? Confronted by days and nights of shivering fear? Forget it! If you think you have troubles, wait till you meet the men and women…and things in these 16 heart-squeezing suspense stories by the man the Louisville Courier-Journal & Times says “is currently the leading craftsman in the literature of terror and dread.” Gathered together for the first time in a book guaranteed to make your life seem sweet and sensible by comparison, these shuddery thrillers introduce you to: a mad bomber, a hangman, a corrupt PR man, the guy who drives the nitro truck, the demon-god of street violence, assorted murderers and their victims and, in a brand-new story done especially for this collection, an encounter with the tired little old man who wasn’t there. Harlan Ellison, winner of the Mystery Writers of America 1974 award for Best Short Story (included in this book), shows you a frightening world of paranoia and panic, fear and fantasy…with no way out!
