Join horror-master Robert R.McCammon on a breathtaking journey of the imagination. "We will travel across a tortured land and peer into windows at lives that might be our own," he promises. In these stories, "we might even see the end of the world, and we might sit on a front porch for a while and sip a glass of gasoline on a hot December day." From the battlefields of a Vietnam veteran's memory to an old-time movie hero's search for a serial killer, from Halloween in a special town, where the rules of trick-or-treat are written in blood, to a Georgia road where a wrong turn leads to a quivering nest of evil, Blue World is Robert R. McCammon at his terrifying best.
