(From the publisher):
The book that launched the small press horror boom in the 1980s, The Dark Country is arguably the most influential horror collection of the past two decades.
Moody and experimental, Dennis Etchison's early stories explore a surreal terrain that has more in common with the paranoid world of Philip K. Dick than it does with traditional horror.
Etchison has been called "the most original horror writer in America " and "the finest writer of psychological horror this genre has produced".
The title story, "The Dark Country," won the British Fantasy Award in 1981 and the World Fantasy Award in 1982 -- the only time a single work has received both honors.
