There is no safe hiding place on this fictional turf where burning desire and dark terror meet, where ecstasy merges with agony, and eros and evil spawn unholy horror. Put yourself in the hands of twenty-two great modern masters of macabre imagination as they give new definition to being madly in love. Here is Stephen King at his chilling best with a never-before-published story as he invites you to lunch on a feast of passion turned painful--in a restaurant that serves its specials of the day bloody rare. Let John Peyton Cooke show you how hell happens when an inventive sadist joins with an insatiable masochist. Go skinny-dipping with Richard Laymon in a lake of lethal fun and watch a teenage boy take his first plunge into sex and savagery. Join Kathe Koja in a dance of damnation as a beautiful ballerina is possessed by a hunger no number of lovers can satisfy. This is just a tantalizing hint of the imaginative chills and mind-boggling twists of the perverse, bizarre, and creepy pleasures that await you in a gathering that includes a locket that unlocks a woman's most forbidden fantasies; a wife whose abduction turns her into an out-of-control erotic outlaw; a credit card error that changes a man's identity with devastating results; an eerie new angle on Jack the Ripper; a mother and daughter in a game of sexual one-upwomanship with scarier and scarier stakes; a fashion designer who creates a dress to die for; and other stories that show there are no limits to dark love.
