Containing stories from the dark side, the light side, and all shades in between, this is a masterful collection by one of America's rising storytellers. Storylines include that of a woman who discovers grisly horror on a mountain road, a plastic love doll who becomes liberated, and a baby's diaper that is possessed by aliens.

From Booklist:

The recent acclaim garnered by cult hero Lansdale's suspense novels Mucho Mojo and Savage Season (1990) may have readers searching for his award-winning horror stories. This latest collection both horrifies and amuses, sometimes within the same piece. Take, for example, "Steppin' Out, Summer '68," in which three teenage boys set out in search of sex and end up . . . as two boys. In "Love Doll," a man buys one of those inflatable sex dolls, nurtures her, educates her, and is finally left behind. Another highlight is "Godzilla's Twelve Step Program," in which that well-known reptile valiantly takes it one day at a time in his struggle to overcome an addiction to burnin' and stompin'. There's also a nonfiction article chronicling Lansdale's affinity for low-budget horror movies and a very scary play based on an early Lansdale short story. For those who want to risk never sleeping soundly again, there's "Drive-in Date," in which the horror gradually dawns on the appalled reader. On the basis of this collection, Lansdale's newly acquired cult status stands only to be strengthened. Wes Lukowsky
