Another indispensable collection from the American Fantastic Tales series. These short stories demonstrate the evolving themes and tone of the genre, and reveal not only what has changed in the field but what has endured, what is essential to the telling of such stories. Straub's picks feature the genre's canonized luminaries alongside more obscure writers. This collection shows the breadth and deep appeal that fantasy and horror hold on our culture.
