Content descriptions

Formatted Contents Note: No matter which way we turned -- Born stillborn -- Leaking out -- Song for the unraveling of the world -- Second door -- Sisters -- Room tone -- Shirts and skins -- Tower -- Hole -- A disappearance -- Cardiacs -- Smear -- Glistening world -- Wanderlust -- Lord of the vats -- Glasses -- Menno -- Line of sight -- Trigger warnings -- Kindred spirit -- Lather of flies.
Summary, etc.: A newborn's absent face appears on the back of someone else's head, a filmmaker goes to gruesome lengths to achieve the silence he's after for his final scene, and a therapist begins, impossibly, to appear in a troubled patient's room late at night. In these stories of doubt, delusion, and paranoia, no belief, no claim to objectivity, is immune to the distortions of human perception. Here, self-deception is a means of justifying our most inhuman impulses--whether we know it or not.
Genre: Science fiction.
Short stories.
Horror fiction.
