Six terrifying tales to chill the blood from the unique imagination of Joyce Carol Oates.

A young boy plays with dolls instead of action figures. But as he grows older, his passion takes on a darker edge...

A white man shoots dead a black youth creating a media frenzy. But could it have been self-defense as he claims?

A nervous woman tries to escape her husband. He says he loves her, but she's convinced he wants to kill her...

These quietly lethal stories reveal the horrors that dwell within us all.

Joyce Carol Oates is the winner of a host of prizes, including the National Book Award and a Guggenheim Fellowship. She has written more than 70 books, and is Professor of the Humanities at Princeton University.

Multi-award winning author, recipient of the O Henry and National Book Award.

One of the world's greatest writers of suspense.
