Sinopsis: The Lansdale name is legendary in the horror field. Now acclaimed musician and actress Kasey Lansdale follows in her father's footsteps, making her editing debut with this anthology of monstrously innovative stories. The twelve creatures that stalk the pages of Impossible Monsters spring from the twisted imaginations of a dozen of today s most noted authors.
International superstar Neil Gaiman is a storyteller s storyteller, and with 'Click-Clack the Rattlebag' he weaves an atmospheric tale that ensures readers will never hear a simple bedtime story the same way again.
In 'The Glitter of the Crowns,' New York Times-bestselling author Charlaine Harris, the creator of the Sookie Stackhouse series, turns her attention from vampires to werewolves--but appearances may be deceiving where monsters are concerned.
Mystery legend Anne Perry offers 'Monster,' a story that takes the reader from an antiquarian bookstore in Cambridge to the blue seas of the Mediterranean and leaves the reader guessing until the very last page in true whodunit style.
And, of course, this anthology wouldn't be complete without a contribution from beloved, award-winning author Joe R. Lansdale, who offers the latest adventure of supernatural sleuth Dana Roberts in 'The Case of the Angry Traveler.'
Including stories by the likes of Al Sarrantonio and David J. Schow, among others, this collection of tales delivers on its promise. Because these monsters are never what the reader expects...
From Publishers Weekly: Eschewing romantic vampires and shambling zombies, this collection presents monsters that do not merely kill, but suddenly and incomprehensibly consume, destroy, and reduce their victims to mere bones. Lansdale eschews editorial commentary, but it's clear that she's worked to fill this anthology with visceral, creative pieces about ordinary people encountering the extraordinary; the book surprises readers with strangeness while tapping deeply into primal fears. Standouts include Neil Gaiman's creepy turnabout on the bedtime story, Click-Clack the Rattlebag ; Chet Williamson's twisted depiction of OCD gone deadly in Detritus ; and Neil Barrett Jr.'s delightfully disgusting redneck Bloaters. The Case of the Angry Traveler brings the editor's father, longtime horror author Joe R. Lansdale, into the mix. Readers who stay up late wondering if there really is something out there will find these stories to be perfect nightmare fodder. (Aug.)
