Summary (From the publisher):

This riveting collection of stories explores a haunting theme that has fascinated writers in many different genres: the disquieting and eerie intrusion of the double into everyday life. The surprisingly diverse stories in Double/Double include murder mysteries, fairy tales, metaphysical conundrums, playful sleights of hand, and tales of horror and suspense.
