"The book's best stories push the envelope of their themes or work effective variations on familiar horror story types. Douglas Clegg's "The Machinery of Night" is a creepy exploration of the deranged mind and the anomalies of physics and biology that might be possible if physical constants were as fluid and unpredictable as madness. Gary A. Braunbeck's "The Box Man" is a well-wrought Twilight Zone tale on the dark side of everyday experience. "Fine Until You Called," by Thomas Tessier, is a perfect black comedy in which a telephone solicitation for a medical charity leaves the unsympathetic protagonist irremediably self-conscious about his own mortality."
