Summary (From the publisher):

From the first two-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award in the children’s category come this gripping collection of eight tales of the weird and otherworldly. In the title story, madness awaits inside a statue created by an insane dying artist. "The Lily and the Weaver’s Heart" is a tale of a courageous one-eyed village girl who makes a life for herself and her young love, a one-legged cobbler, by selling her weavings and taking his place in a time-honored courting ritual in which young village men set out on a weeklong hunt for a rare lily for their future spouses. In "Lunch at Etienne’s," a brief, chilling tale of nuclear winter, a woman continues her weekly luncheon dates until she realizes she’s the only diner speaking. In "The Flat-Brimmed Hat," a teenage girl’s attempted suicide is thwarted by a visit from her older, wiser, happier self.
