Extremities: Stories of Death, Murder, and Revenge by David Lubar
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Maybe I was just in the mood for these creepy stories, or that there's a certain sensibility here that I responded to but, well, this collection was so much fun to read! The creepy factor isn't so high that you can't read this late at night (well, for me, anyway, but I have a high tolerance for these things), but it's definitely there. Some of the stories reminded me of urban legends (or vague remakes of, say, The Haunting of Hill House), albeit ones with a little twist that made them uniquely Lubar's.
