Summary "The Bram Stoker Award-winning short story collection. "These solidly crafted tales consistently evoke an enjoyably unsettling mood of horror." - Publishers Weekly Thomas F. Monteleone displays his mastery of the horror genre in the selected short fiction of Fearful Symmetries , collected works spanning more than twenty years of his career. Revel in the deftly deployed classic horror tropes of these twenty-six stories, from their Lovecraftian monsters and archetypal vampires to Bradbury-esque mysteries and Twilight Zone -type tales. In "The Night Is Freezing Fast," a mysterious hitchhiker emerges from a white-out winter storm, following a boy and his grandfather into an ever-more dangerous evening. "Love Letters"-written as a series of letters from a backwoods Pennsylvanian farmer, a private investigator, and an adult pen pal service-subtly instills psychological suspense into the epistolary form. From celebrity-hunting vampires in "Triptych di Amore" to Lovecraftian behemoths in "Yog Sothoth, Superstar," there's a skillfully told trope for every horror reader. With a wry author's note accompanying each story, and an introduction from the late Rick Hautala, the Bram Stoker Award-winning Fearful Symmetries thrills and disturbs with its twisted tales. Praise for Thomas F. Monteleone "Monteleone has a dark imagination, a wicked pen, and the rare ability to convey an evil chill with words." -Dean Koontz, New York Times -bestselling author "Tom's an expert storyteller." -F. Paul Wilson, author of The Keep and Deep as the Marrow "A vastly entertaining novel of horror and suspense [that poses] difficult questions about the nature of man, God and the devil." - Los Angeles Daily News "The story is irresistible, moving to a mighty climax." - The New York Times"-- Provided by Freading.
