Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: If the truth be told the short story is probably the superior form, because there's no getting away with anything. You get it exactly right or it doesn't work at all. Eleven flights of fancy and one true story... but it can be hard to say where fancy ends and the truth begins. In this, his second collection of short fiction, award-winning author and screenwriter Stephen Gallagher delivers his unique take on the weird, the wonderful and the downright strange. These are tales in which the world is very much as we know it, but charged with a sense of the wonders that lie in wait just beneath the surface of our everyday reality. Grisly goings-on in a tattoo parlour... A bereaved girl's poetic revenge... Hunting fairies with pickup truck and cattle prod... Along with The Blackwood Oak, a novella making its first appearance between these covers, the stories have been drawn together from sources as diverse as Weird Tales, Subterranean, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Winter Chills, and The Dark.
