Interior Darkness Title

Interiour Darkness Cover

"Filled with terror, wit and unexpected grace notes, it’s a remarkable achievement that reflects the arc of a lengthy and celebrated career.”
—The Washington Post

"These stories take a while to work on you. Reflection and rereading is sometimes necessary. But nobody said art is always easy and readers who invest in this collection will feel more rewarded than not.”
—Associated Press

“Peter Straub's shorter fictions are like tiny novels you drown in: perfectly pitched, terrifyingly smart, big-hearted, dangerous, and even cruel….If you care about the short story, you should read this book, and watch a master at work.”
—NEIL GAIMAN, author of The Ocean at the End of the Lane

"Straub has a proven knack for black humor, and he coaxes the nightmarish out of the mundane with startling ease. This is a powerful collection from an enduring favorite in literary chills.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"These stories show [Straub] ranging far and high into the uplands of literary fiction without ever leaving behind the dark impulses and fears that make his work so powerful.”
—John Crowley, author of Little, Big and the Aegypt Cycle
