‘ . . . a really strange little group of tales, roughly on the theme of how people use substances from heroin to green tea to alter their lives.’
     Smiley Anders, the Baton Rouge Advocate




‘ . . . a spooky anthology . . . ’
                    Tom Paulin, the New Statesman






‘The chosen authors go back to Poe, Hawthorne, and Thomas Love Peacock; there is also Ronald Firbank and Sheridan le Fanu. Up-to-date writers are not neglected, with settings as far apart as Morocco and Las Vegas, some not previously published. It is an imaginative list.’
Oxford Times
