Summary:HORROR & GHOST STORIES. Imogene is young, beautiful, kisses like a
movie star, and knows everything about every film ever made. She's
also dead, the legendary ghost of the Rosebud Theater. Arthur Roth is
a lonely kid with a head full of big ideas and a gift for getting his
ass kicked. It's hard to make friends when you're the only inflatable
boy in town. Francis is unhappy, picked on; he doesn't have a life, a
hope, a chance. Francis was human once, but that's behind him now.
John Finney is in trouble. The kidnapper locked him in a basement, a
place stained with the blood of half a dozen other murdered children.
With him, in his subterranean cell, is an antique phone, long since
disconnected ...but it rings at night, anyway, with calls from the
dead...Meet these, and a dozen more, in one of the most praised
collections this century. Irresistible, addictive fun, showcasing a
dazzling new talent.
