This publication was a part of my wife's original library and I picked it up on a whim. I found it to be an interesting read and for the most part it held my interest. There were a few stories not quite as fascinationg as others but I believe that it's a book best read a bit at a time. If you are intersted in the strange and unusal and enjoy a book that doesn't insult your intelligence, give it a shot. The stories aren't that long and most of them are really cool.
