A phone call has chilling consequences, and one father’s loss is written on the wind. A family find themselves trapped inside a bizarre consumer-land, and at the same time a man who has nothing to live for considers the many ways to die. Then a burglar gets more than he bargained for while a reporter also finds his luck running out…. There are eighteen stories here (five of them brand new), including the Sherlock Holmes adventure ‘The Greatest Mystery’, sequels to Poe’s The Masque of the Red Death and Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, plus the moving title story and a special bonus tale in the form of Paul’s first accepted short story, never reprinted since its first appearance in 1998: ‘The Cave of Lost Souls.”
