About this title:

Synopsis: Chilling tales full of alien beauty or terror. "Into My Own" is a story which takes please inside the head of an aging playwright in a hospital bed, trying to resign himself to giving up his soul to an organic computer. "Disturb Not My Slumbering Fair" deals with the problems which a lady ghoul faces when she attempts to gain access to the city morgue. And in "Fellini Beggar" Ms. Yarbo highlights one of the unifying themes of this volume, the magic mystery of beauty and love surviving, however doomed, against all odds. Also includes "Everything That Begins with an 'M'", "Frog Pond", "Un Bel Di", "Lammas Night", "The Meaning of the Word", "The Generalissimo's Butterfly", "Allies", "Dead in Irons", "Swan Song" and "An Indulgence".
