These are fine stories… that explore the darkness that lurks on the edge of our subconscious…
As with most PS Publishing volumes the production values for the book are high, with cover art by Marcelo Gallegos that invokes both wonder and terror…
The editors have chosen “Drunk on Dream” by Jeffrey Thomas to closeout the collection. It’s a superb little piece that reminds us why Thomas is so loved by his readers. It’s full of the ennui of modern life, and the joy that comes from the tiny seemingly insignificant fantasies that sustain us through the day when nothing else will, and the deep sadness – that strange melancholy that swallows us – when we are forced to abandon them.
Andy Serkis says that THE LAST HOUSE ON NEEDLESS STREET is “the kind of book you come across once in a lifetime”, and he’s adapting it into a movie.
Stephen King writes that he “was blown away. It’s a true nerve-shredder that keeps its mind-blowing secrets to the very end. Haven’t read anything this exciting since GONE GIRL.”

In some ways, this is an incredible book about growing old with the one you love.
Then things get weird.
I was particularly pleased with the description of two senior citizens struggling against an ocean enraged by both a hurricane and the presence of a nascent elder god.
There are relatively few books in which the elderly function as protagonists, and Schlossberg not only makes you care for the pair of them, but also makes their plight and actions in the face of a personal apocalypse feel perfectly appropriate and natural.
I was on the phone with Laird recently, just catching up. Somehow we got on the topic of strange but true life experiences that we’ve had. Things that have happened that are utterly chilling, yet true… and unexplainable.
Sunshine was streaming through the window as we talked, but when he told me a couple of his stories, my blood ran cold. I suggested that we do a Patreon Podcast so that he could relate these experiences to YOU, the Patreons, and he agreed to do so!
“I feel like something bad is going to happen to me. I feel like something bad HAS happened. It hasn’t reached me yet… but it’s on its way.”
