Summary (From the publisher):

Assembled here are nineteen stories of vintage Campbell: from a man carefully following directions to his own destruction to a creature from a pop-up book so terrifying that you might be afraid ever to open a book again.

With all the brilliant skill, emotional force and atmosphere that fans of Campbell have learned to expect, Waking Nightmares is horror at its most gripping and short fiction at its finest.
