Description
"It can appear in a dream state; it can breathe in familiar shadows; it can be unique or unbearably recognizable. What is it about the grotesque that fascinates, provokes, and fills us with a rising sense of dread?

With eerie brilliance, this master of the short story reminds us just how seductive - and terrifying - they can be. ..."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
