Synopsis: Nine stories deal with a psychiatrist, a demented actress, voodoo, a sinister junkyard, phantom characters, the price of success, a giant salamander, ghosts, and murderers
From Publishers Weekly:
Wagner's second collection contains 11 horror stories, most of which are diverting if not actually horrifying. "Neither Brute Nor Human" is a tale of two writers who make it big, one of whom is really drained by his success; "Into Whose Hands" is an account, with very sinister overtones, of a day in the life of a psychiatrist in a state mental hospital; "Old Loves" makes gentle and not so gentle fun of the fanatic fans of the old Avengers television series; "The Last Wolf" is a sad tale of the future in which people have almost ceased to read; "Sign of the Salamander" is a well-executed pastiche of 1930s pulp magazine hero stories; "Blue Lady, Come Back" is an expert mix of detective story and supernatural story; and "Lacunae" concerns a drug that expands the consciousness a bit beyond its limits.
