In The Museum of Dr Moses one of the short stories, Feral, tells of a child, Derek, who dies in a swimming pool accident and is brought back to life by the paramedics. The problem is, the child that is brought back, is not the child that died despite all outward appearances. The parents become more and more scared of Derek as he starts keeping strange hours and going out in the middle of the night. It isn't until they follow him out one late evening that they realize how scared they really should be.
Another short story, Valentine, July Heat Wave tells of a man angry, and in love who's only desire is to get even with his wife who is divorcing him. He decides that the best way to get even is for her to find his dead body. It is how and where she finds his dead body that is creepy and gross!
There are a total of ten short stories in this book, frankly, not enough for me! I wish that there had been about ten more so I could get my total creep on! This is a great book to read right around Halloween!
