A collection of stories by

 
 
Awards
World Fantasy Best Collection (nominee)
Publisher's Weekly
Wagner's second collection contains 11 horror stories, most of which are diverting if not actually horrifying. ''Neither Brute Nor Human'' is a tale of two writers who make it big, one of whom is really drained by his success; ''Into Whose Hands'' is an account, with very sinister overtones, of a day in the life of a psychiatrist in a state mental hospital; ''Old Loves'' makes gentle and not so gentle fun of the fanatic fans of the old Avengers television series; ''The Last Wolf'' is a sad tale of the future in which people have almost ceased to read; ''Sign of the Salamander'' is a well-executed pastiche of 1930s pulp magazine hero stories; ''Blue Lady, Come Back'' is an expert mix of detective story and supernatural story; and ''Lacunae'' concerns a drug that expands the consciousness a bit beyond its limits.
