MCSWEENEY'S ENCHANTED CHAMBER OF ASTONISHING STORIES -
         EDITED BY MICHAEL CHABON

This book is a collection of short stories, which you might want to classify as weird, strange tales.  There are several contributors - among them are Stephen King, Peter Straub, Jason Roberts, Margaret Atwood and Steve Erikson. 

My favorites are "Lusus Naturae" by Margaret Atwood.  This is the story of a human with a mysterious disease that results in yellow eyes and red fingernails.  Another great one is "Lisey and the Madman by Stephen King.  This one is written in the Stephen King creativity that is his trademark.   A really strange one is "Minnow".  After reading this one, you will think about it every time you look at a baby monitor. 

All in all, this is an interesting collection of strange tales.  Each reader will have a favorite.  If you are a fan of the weird story, this is the book for you.  These tales will make you sit back and think - that's for sure.  We look forward to another collection of strange tales edited by Michael Chabon.
