I owned this anthology (in paperback) for nearly a year before I finally got around to reading it. Here goes: The stories in The Museum of Horrors run the gamut from the surprisingly poor ('The Window' and 'In Real Life') to the excellent ('The Bird Catcher,' 'Worse Than Bones,'Whose Ghosts These Are,'Inland, Shoreline' and 'Pound Rots in Fragrant Harbour'). I thoroughly enjoyed Peter Straub's 'Perdido: A Fragment from a Work in Progress' until it abruptly ended. Of course, the story's title warns you of this, but still... The excellent writing in this volume far outweighs the bad, which is why I give it 4 stars.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
