More Queer and Weird Stories
by Steve Berman
A scent of loneliness entices children to start eating away at a caretaker's historic house; a nursery rhyme tempts a young love; and a meek accountant finds himself abandoning the mundane life he knew to chase after monsters. If you enjoy your speculative fiction with a queer tint, these stories will do the trick.

"The stories are without exception well-wrought, fluent gems that reveal Berman's gift for taking absolutely unremarkable situations, little fragments of everyday life, or sometimes bits of popular apocrypha, and twisting them off their path into bizarre and surprising places." - Rambles.net
