Eleven short stories from 1993. Favorites:

“Haunted By The Horror King” – A failed writer loses two wives and ends up in a mental institution all because of the works of Stephen King.

“The Entomologists Of Obala” – One man studies wasps and another spiders. They and their families meet in the Amazon. While their kids are drawn to each other the story plays out like Romero And Juliet in the jungle. Things with the fathers get way out of hand.

“The Return Of Count Electric” – A serial killer who killed eight women with electricity has disappeared. Years later a man opens a letter from his late mother who suspected her husband and his father of the murders. He decides to investigate.

“Looking Out For Eleanor” (novelette) – Eleanor is a beauty short on brains. One man thinks it’s his mission in life to protect her no matter who he has to kill. A social worker gets on their trail and tries to interfere.

“A Child’s Christmas In Florida” (1993) – A bizarre story about a bizarre family’s Christmas celebration. It includes putting animal traps on a Christmas tree.

About vintage45

I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself. Thanks to all for checking out the blog.

      It may be tough to find. It’s published by White Wolf which lists themselves as Dark Fantasy. Most of their books concern Werewolves,vampires etc. and the now defunct card game Rage. The spine on this book says Dark Fantasy but it’s not.
