    I purchased this book for the sole purpose of reading an obscure Stephen King short story called 'Night of the Tiger'. Maybe I'll read the rest of it one day...

    The rockabilly werewolf from Mars

    Fairly interesting collection of horror fiction. I don't have any particular notes to make about the overall collection, so here are my story notes: Window An experiment goes wrong, causing the appearance of an entrance to an alternate universe. Quite neat. Insects In Amber Odd story about a haunted house, psychic powers, and aliens. Free Dirt Dark comedy about a man who tries to put the surplus soil from a cemetery to use. Rising Water A kid swims out to a half-submerged abandoned house. A fairly conve Fairly interesting collection of horror fiction. I don't have any particular notes to make about the overall collection, so here are my story notes: Window An experiment goes wrong, causing the appearance of an entrance to an alternate universe. Quite neat. Insects In Amber Odd story about a haunted house, psychic powers, and aliens. Free Dirt Dark comedy about a man who tries to put the surplus soil from a cemetery to use. Rising Water A kid swims out to a half-submerged abandoned house. A fairly conventional ghost story enlivened by a memorable setting. Night Of The Tiger A teen-ager gets a job at a traveling circus, and notices something odd about the tigers. A rarely reprinted Stephen King story with a nicely Bradbury-esque atmosphere. Poor Little Warrior A time traveler has an encounter with a dinosaur. Nina A story about a man who meets a woman who is part snake. Werewind A windstorm of supernatural origin wreaks havoc on Los Angeles. Dress Of White Silk Similar to the author's story Born Of Man And Woman, this story is also written in a faux-childish voice; but this one concerns a playdate that goes horribly wrong. Gladys's Gregory Satirical story about a weight gain contest. This one hasn't aged very well. By The River Fontainebleau Weird, ultimately puzzling story about an artist and his model. Pride I am quite a fan of Charles L Grant and his "quiet horror" stories, and this one, about were-lions, is quite good and superbly atmospheric, as one would expect of his work. Long tooth A bigfoot story. Glory A story about a vampire actress. I have very little interest in the "old Hollywood" era (I basically only watch B-movies, which weren't exactly common in that era), so this didn't do too much for me. Bug House A woman goes to visit her dying aunt, who lives in an insect-infested house, and meets a creepy man who looks after her aunt. Quite atmospheric. Hand In Glove Two women visit a cemetery, where they find random objects that seem to appear out of nowhere; encounter some weird people who live nearby; witness something disturbing, yet never described, in an abandoned church; experience weird time distortions; and watch a man get trampled to death by cows. I thoroughly enjoyed this. Stillborn A family moves to a creepy town, were they are expected to perform a sinister ritual in an old mine. Ballgrumo's Hell A thief is hired to acquire a rare painting from a house with a bad reputation. Although not as mind-numbingly dull as the other two stories I have read by this author (it has a decent atmosphere and some mildly creepy imagery, and it doesn't have a protagonist who quotes poetry every other paragraph), this story still isn't very good. I would honestly say that Kirk is probably the most boring horror writer of all time. The Old Darkness A power outage leads to a town being menaced by a supernatural force.
