This was quite a different reading experience for me, someone who's used to the more conventional horror short-stories of Stephen King and Dean Koontz. Whitley Strieber's writing is more experimental, more out there; I dunno if I'd say scarier, but definitely weirder. My favorite stories out of this anthology were The Nixon Mask and I Walk The Night. The one section of the story Pain, where he's describing the closet (or cupboard?) is just so absolutely disturbing and cringe-worthy in its naked horror, but in such a stark beautiful prose. That one will haunt me for awhile. I guess this book is super rare and hard to find. Which is weird because on the dust-jacket of my copy, it gives prices for both the limited-edition run (signed by the author, limited to 350 copies) and also the trade hardcover edition. So who knows if the book ever made it to a regular printing or not?
