Extraordinary events and mysterious circumstances fill this eerie collection of nineteen stories. Music takes a boy to a strange place, a scythe compels its users to slash on and on, a jacket is possessed and a beautiful woman turns into a vampire. Other strange and unsettling encounters grip the imagination and quicken the pulse in stories from authors such as Ursula Le Guin, Joan Aiken, Diana Wynne Jones and many others. Adrian Reynolds' illustrations add the finishing touch to these mystifying stories.
