Haunted A Novel of Stories By Palahniuk, Chuck Book - 2005 | 1st ed

This collection of short stories takes its cue from the retreat where Mary Shelley, John Polidori and Lord Byron met to brainstorm new stories, and from which the idea for Frankenstein sprung forth, but there the similarity ends. These 23 writers answer an ad for an artist's retreat, which they hope will be peaceful and productive, only to find themselves trapped and slowly losing it. There are some very vivid tales here, but the image that sticks in my mind is the thought of stepping barefoot on dollhouse furniture. Frightening.
