THE DARK COUNTRY
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.
Featuring a new introduction by Ramsey Campbell.
Dennis Etchison ay well be the finest writer of psychological horror this genre has seen.

**** Etchison Makes A Terrific Showing
Etchison gives us a very original brand of fiction, a mix of King here, a dash of Bradbury there, and sprinkled with a bit of Clive Barker ever so subtly. Ever writer of fiction can miss the mark, but few can hit it right on the bullseye. To find a collection like this, it's worth the bad apples you have to go through.
