His work is unique and inspired. AN INTIMATE KNOWLEDGE OF THE NIGHT includes three of his finest and most complex horror stories, 'The Bullet That Grows in the Gun,' 'The Daemon Street Ghost-Trap,' and 'Scaring the Train.' Terrific, innovative work that is highly regarded." - Boyd White. "A writer of great sophistication whose work has few parallels elsewhere in the genre." - Foundation. Trade paperback format.
