Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

I have been a fan of the novelist Peter Straub ever since Ghost Story. That he can be just as compelling and scary in brief bites is a welcome revelation. Seven wonderful tales. Donald Westlake, author of The Hook and The Ax
No one can speak the unspeakable as gruesomely as Peter Straub. The most magical thing about Magic Terror is its sheer bloodcurdling range: a variety of genre-defying tales, no two of the seven remotely resembling each other except in the brilliance of the invention and the writing, and in Straub's power to spook you out of your wits. Donald Harington, author of When Angels Rest
When Peter Straub turns on all his jets, no one in the scream factory can equal him. Stephen King
