Publisher's Summary

This book won a World Fantasy Award. It's remarkable: The stories are rich, fascinating stuff - creepy and unsettling and phantasmic. Imagine what Tolkien's Lord of the Rings would have been like if Tolkien had tried to tell that story sympathetically from the point of view of the human denizens of Mordor and you'll have the slightest sense of what you're about to wade into... but only just a sense.
These stories will make the same demands on you that they made on Brian: They will command and compel you, and fill you full of terrible wonder. And when you've finished them, you'll find yourself wanting more.

Awesome content, annoying release.

Great stories told with mastery. The only complaint I have is with the release itself. The chapters vary between 2 to 20 mins in length with no indication where one story begins and another ends, which, in a collection of stort stories, is a major annoyence.

I still strongly recommend this book to anyone with a fondness for wierd horror or dark fantasy.

A Gateway Book...

I had never heard of this title or author. I am an avid reader of science fiction and have dabbled in fantasy, but I have rarely read a horror book when not assigned to do so. I would describe this as horror fantasy, somewhere between George R. R. Martin and H. P. Lovecraft.

I bought this title to listen to during my flights over Thanksgiving, after the recommendation from the "Stuff to Blow Your Mind" podcast. Once I started it, I had to finish it. It was addictive. In fact, I have enjoyed this collection of tales so much, that I plan to further explore horror fiction.

Wayne is a God.

The narration in this is absolutely incredible. Wayne June is the perfect for this genre. The only reason you shouldn't have already listened to this audiobook is if you can't lovecraftian horror.
