Book Review: Patricia Highsmith, Slowly, Slowly in the Wind

A creepy little collection of short horror stories, complete with epic apocalyptic ending. It has been a while since a story has been able to stun me with surprise; almost all of them in this volume did so. Title story: brilliant, just thinking about it gives me goosebumps again. Some of these outright scared me, a feat achieved by very few authors, including Shirley Jackson, Stephen King, and Peter Straub. Absolutely fantastic.
