    I was initially attracted to this book because of the Richard Sala cover and interior drawings, as I'm a huge fan of his work. I read the book in about four hours, and wasn't initially impressed, as many of the stories are incomplete chapters. The writing is good, but stories can end abruptly. Then, because I was caught without anything to read, I flipped through the book a second time and became more engrossed.

Then, because I was caught without anything to read, I flipped through the book a second time and became more engrossed. I think it was because I started to equate these stories with chapter installments from the old pulp magazines, and once I quit worrying about the lack of endings (which, in my mind, were in the next issue of Astounding Stories, or Weird Tales, or other classic old pulp magazines) I was able to enjoy the writing for what it was. So, yeah, I like this book now. Oddly, I'm writing two reviews today, and the other one is for Bat-Manga, where I crab incessantly about how the stories are incomplete, and how that really bugged me. Why is it okay with me this time? I don't know. I suppose I must either be overly complex, or simply a cretin.

    So close to really good. All of the stories had potential, but too many of them didn't go anywhere/ended to early for them to be enjoyable. Some of them made no sense, and others were anticlimactic, so the good ones were drowned out. So close to really good.

    Nice collection of weird tales. Unfortunately, a few of them go nowhere.
