'scuse the Ballantine overload, but we're nearly finished with them for the time being! Sean gave us the lowdown on several of the stories included in this and Ballantine's abridged Nights Dark Angels in the Favourite Authors section, and I can certainly vouch for the superbness of Schizo Jimmy and the completely insane The Power Of The Puppets.
From the first, I set myself against "literature"; the story was the thing, and no amount of style could persuade me to select a story that lacked genuine, unadulterated horror. For those who wanted something high-brow there was plenty. - Christine Campbell Thomson
