Overview

"There are haunted places in the world, all existing in reality and every bit as tangible and accessible as the house next door. Sometimes it is the house next door."
In this brilliant debut collection, Ian Rogers explores the border-places between our world and the dark reaches of the supernatural. The landscape of death becomes the new frontier for scientific exploration. A honeymoon cabin with an unspeakable appetite finally meets its match. A suburban home is transformed into the hunting ground for a new breed of spider. A nightmarish jazz club at the crossroads of reality plays host to those who can break a deal with the devil...for a price. With remarkable deftness, Rogers draws together the disturbing and the diverting in twenty-two showcase stories that will guide you through terrain at once familiar and startlingly fresh.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The reader must get some distance into this uneven fantasy collection before the selections distinguish themselves as more than interesting but underdeveloped ideas. In “The Rifts Between Us,” scientists exploring the boundary between life and death unwittingly open the door to an intruder from the afterlife. “Deleted Scenes” is a wry black comedy about actors whose job is to film scenes for the cutting-room floor and their fate at the hands of zealous movie geeks. In “The Cat,” a pet cat’s nightly deposit of animal corpses grows increasingly ambitious—and alarming to its owner. Many of the book’s stories end abruptly just as they are getting interesting, but a handful reveal Rogers to be an imaginative and original writer with the skill to fully execute his plots. (Nov.)
Library Journal
From "Aces," a chilling tale of siblings Tobias and Soelle, whose relationship revolves around the possibility that Soelle possesses magical powers that Tobias can't always explain away, to the palpable yet subtle terror contained within the tale of an aging couple's fading memories ("The Candle"), the 22 stories in Rogers's debut collection demonstrate the author's talent for finding the terrifying in the seemingly ordinary. Arranged in sections that correspond to rooms in a house (The Vestibule; The Library; The Attic; The Den; and The Cellar), the stories comprise a guided tour of homes, lighthouses, cabins, and other buildings, while recognizing that the true hauntings are found within the human psyche. VERDICT This work of classic horror in the style of Shirley Jackson, Richard Matheson, and early Stephen King should attract fans of a more refined kind of horror.
