A stunning collection of twisted tales of psychos, schizoids and serial killers from the master horror anthologist Stephen Jones. With an introduction by Psycho author Robert Bloch.
We all go a little mad sometimes ...
Included among these twisted tales - of psychos, schizoids and serial killers, many with a supernatural twist - is Reggie Oliver's revival of Edgar Allan Poe's wily French detective, C. Auguste Dupin, a new 'Bryant & May' London mystery from Christopher Fowler, child-actor-turnedprivate-eye Marty Burns investigating a quirky Hollywood case by Jay Russell and internationally bestselling Michael Marshall revisiting The Straw Men conspiracy.
Alongside one of Robert Bloch's most iconic stories, there's an original wraparound sequence in the style of the author by John Llewellyn Probert.
With classic reprints by R. Chetwynd-Hayes, Basil Copper and Dennis Etchison, original fiction by Peter Crowther, Brian Hodge, Richard Christian Matheson, Paul McAuley, Lisa Morton, Robert Shearman, Steve Rasnic Tem and others, you'd have to be out of your mind not to take a stab at these stories!
