This collection of short stories is a little bit hit or miss. Some of the stories are very good, atmospheric and spare, but others just sort of fall flat. "The Creeping Terror" was really disappointing. It could have been funny and clever but it went on for too long and ended up just sort of pointless. But "Button, Button," "A Flourish of Strumpets," and "Dying Room Only" were very good and kept me interested. I just marked a bunch of Matheson's other stuff to read, and hope I enjoy them too.
