Sintesi dell'editore

This first volume in a five-volume anthology of Orson Scott Card's short stories features 11 chilling tales that provoke the dreaded dark side of the listener's imagination

A sinful man finally faces his conscience in the form of a baby-like creature that haunts his waking hours. A thrill-seeking playboy uses a time machine to experience the excitement of death without actually dying. A child having trouble adjusting to a new town withdraws into a mysterious computer game, where he meets imaginary friends who have the same names as boys who have recently gone missing.

Stories include: "Eumenides in the Fourth Floor Lavatory", "Quietus", "Deep Breathing Exercises", "Fat Farm", "Closing the Timelid", "Freeway Games", "A Sepulchre of Songs", "Prior Restraint", "The Changed Man and the King of Words", "Memories of My Head", and "Lost Boys".

"One of the genre's most convincing storytellers. An important volume." (Library Journal

"Definitive.... A series of introductions and afterwords offering Card's thoughts on his life and his writing are as absorbing as the stories." (Publishers Weekly

Excellent Anthology

I loved all the stories. Well worth the credit I spent on it. Will probably check out the other books in this series.

The person claiming there was incestuous rape in the first story lied. Don't know why they lied and there's no way to report their review for being a fake review.

caution

The first story contains incestuous rape. I can't stop thinking about. My stomach won't stop hurting. I've never left a review before and I'm so disappointed that it's negative. I feel I need to warn others. Orson was my favorite writer but I feel retraumatized.

Can't stop listening to Card

Narrators are amazing, loved Fat Farm and Deep Breathing Exercises the most. Got to have those twists at the end.
