From here on, the frequency of nastiness generally lessens (although even more sadistic stories are yet to come), and the overall tone gradually becomes less grim. Also the filler stories, of which "Shwartz" and "Patent Number" in this book are perfect examples, become more numerous and longer in length.

    Decent enough read for its day. A couple of the stories were better than others, of course. I would recommend Vortex of Horror - Strange Roots - The Spider and the Fly - and The Man and the Boy.
