A very decent selection of short stories. My favorites: "Closing Time" by Neil Gaiman, "Otherwise Pandemonium" by Nick Hornby, Laurie King's "Weaving the Dark," and Stephen King's "The Tale of Gray Dick." ( )

Good collection with lots of amazing authors! "Closing Time" by Neil Gaiman is pretty creepy, and I very much enjoyed "How Carlos Webster Changed His Name To Carl And Became A Famous Oklahoma Lawman" by Elmore Leonard, even if the title is too long! Stephen King's "The Tale of Gray Dick" was cool to read as it reappears later as part of his Dark Tower series, plus I love the throwing plates action! Nice group of stories here! ( )

Stories meant to entertain...pure and simple. Just the thing when you're curled up in bed on a dark and stormy night, with feet well-tucked under the covers and a candle flickering on the night stand. ( )

It's not really that mammoth of treasury, but the tales are indeed thrilling. I seem to remember one story about a megalodon shark in a lake or lagoon, and that story frightened me. ( )
