The title explains it all. A Short Story Collection of Horrors, the Bizarre, and the Mysterious is a 22-story horror collection ranging from the traditional Halloween story to the very bizarre. There is a vast variety of characters, from the criminal mind to black cats, witches, the insane, Satan, and the grim reaper. If you are a horror fan, get ready for a journey loaded with twists and turns. One thing these stories all have in common is that each one has an exceptional surprise ending. The other thing they all possess is the ability to keep readers on the edge of their seat. By the time you reach the very last story, you will be left breathless and terrified. Two of these stories have won writing contests. See if you can figure out which ones. "As the author, I must be honest. Once these stories were on paper and I was removed, when I went back to read them, some of these tales even scared me." .

The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis is the complete collection of short fiction from the world-renowned Lydia Davis. WINNER OF THE MAN BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZE 2013 'What stories. Precise and piercing, extremely funny. Nearly all are unlike anything you've ever read' Metro 'I loved these stories. They are so well-written, with such clarity of thought and precision of language. Excellent' William Leith, Evening Standard 'Remarkable. Some of the most moving fiction - on death, marriage, children - of recent years. To read Collected Stories is to be reminded of the grand, echoing mind-chambers created by Sebald or recent Coetzee. A writer of vast intelligence and originality' Independent on Sunday 'A body of work probably unique in American writing, in its combination of lucidity, aphoristic brevity, formal originality, sly comedy, metaphysical bleakness, philosophical pressure and human wisdom' New Yorker 'One of the most respected writers in America' Financial Times 'Davis is a high priestess of the startling, telling detail. She can make the most ordinary things, such as couples talking, or someone watching television, bizarre, almost mythical. I felt I had encountered a most original and daring mind' Colm Toibin, Daily Telegraph Lydia Davis is the author of one novel and seven story collections, the most recent of which was a finalist for the 2007 National Book Award. She is the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship and was named a Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French government for her fiction and her translations of modern writers including Maurice Blanchot, Michel Leiris and Marcel Proust.
