THE COLLECTION. NY: SIGNET, Later Edition. 4 1/2 x 6 3/4. Paperback. As New / As New. ISBN: 0451206096. Overview: Called the "Master of the Macabre" by Stephen King, the Bram Stoker Award winner presents his first collection of short stories. Features 32 of his best horror stories, including four brand-new stories. Review: In "The Phonebook Man," the guy delivering the directory, once invited into a woman's house, changes his appearance drastically and refuses to leave. "Life with Father," one of the darkest stories in the collection, concerns a recycling obsession that leads to incest and murder. In "Roommates," Ray searches for one, only to get a strange batch of applicants, including a woman who believes her monkey is her daughter, a three-foot-tall albino, and a dirt-obsessed nurse. In "Bob," a group of women cleverly "sell" a young man on the idea of killing the abusive husband of a woman they know. And in "Pillow Talk," a man is shocked to find himself pursued sexually--by pillows. Little introduces each story by briefly explaining his inspiration for writing it. Little's often macabre, always sharp tales are snippets of everyday life given a creepy twist.-- Booklist.
