Overview

A new collection of award-winning short stories from the acclaimed master of horror - author of the bestselling MR X, KOKO, THE TALISMAN and BLACK HOUSE. Welcome to another kind of terror as Peter Straub leads us into the outer reaches of the psyche. Here the master of the macabre is at his absolute best in seven exquisite tales of living, dying and the terror that lies in between... No one tells a story like Peter Straub. He dazzles with the richness of his plots and the eloquence of his prose. He startles you into laughter in the face of events so dark that you begin to question your own moral compass. Then he reduces you to jelly by spinning a tale so terrifying - and surprising - that you have to sleep with the lights on. Now, with these seven acclaimed stories he has given us his finest and most imaginatively unsettling collection yet. 'WHEN STRAUB TURNS ON ALL HIS JETS, NO ONE IN THE SCREAM FACTORY CAN EQUAL HIM.' STEPHEN KING

Reviews

'Elegant, terrifying, provocative! the best collection of suspense and horror fiction in many years. Magic Terror is bliss for readers whose love of the eerie doesn't preclude a taste for literary elegance.' Washington Post 'Clever exercises in horror.' New York Times 'Mixing stark realism with black comedy, and reverberating with echoes of Conrad, Melville and the Brothers Grimm, these excursions to the dark side of life set a high standard for the literature of contemporary magic terror.' Publishers Weekly 'Peter Straub is the great classicist of horror fiction! a world-class author.' CLIVE BARKER
