About this title

Synopsis:

THIS IS THE FINAL INSTALLMENT IN THE MASQUES SERIES TO BE EDITED BY JERRY WILLIAMSON (WHO PASSED AWAY IN LATE 2005). THE ANTHOLOGY INCLUDES SHORT STORIES FROM SOME OF TODAY'S MOST ACCLAIMED AUTHORS -- RAY BRADBURY, RICHARD MATHESON, POPPY Z. BRITE, JACK KETCHUM, RAY GARTON WITH COVER ART BY CLIVE BARKER.

From Publishers Weekly:

When Williamson (Frights of Fancy) died in 2005, he left behind a treat for horror fans, the fifth volume of his beloved Masques anthology series, a gathering of 28 original tales and one reprint that run the gamut from scary to humorous. Among the standouts are Thomas Sullivan's homage to drive-in passion, "Phantom of the Rainbow"; Barry Hoffman's indictment of teachers' retirement plans, "Disappearing Act"; Richard Christian Matheson's brutally succinct "Making Cabinets"; Tim Waggoner's poignantly psychological "Waters Dark and Deep"; and Thomas Monteleone's brilliantly odd TV fantasy, "How Sweet It Was." Other contributors include Poppy Z. Brite, Judi Rohrig, Ray Bradbury, Jack Ketchum and P.D. Cacek. Not every selection is a winner, but the good far outweighs the bad, making this a fitting coda to Williamson's long career. (Oct.)
