OVERVIEW: An aimless driver in the mountains comes upon something that’s both more and less than he hoped for. A child discovers why you should always stay in bed if you wake up in the middle of the night. A homeowner unpacks the wrong bag of groceries, and comes to suspect his neighbors might have secrets that he doesn’t want to know. A cable shopping channel presenter is confronted with disgruntled customers from a *very* long way out of town ... and a man sets himself to rid the world of one of its most famous lies, and winds up destroying himself instead.
Michael Marshall Smith’s last short story collection was hailed as “stellar” by Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) and a “major publishing event” by Ellen Datlow, and it won the International Horror Guild Award. You’re invited to return to the short fiction of New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author Michael Marshall Smith: it is Everything You Need.
PRAISE FOR THE WORK OF MICHAEL MARSHALL SMITH
“It’s not his craft and skill that Michael Marshall Smith displays in his short stories that I object to. It’s not the easy wit, or the comfortable way he deploys language as a weapon. It’s not even that way that he can conjure people so real in so few words. It’s that, when a Mike Smith short story is over, it’s pretty much guaranteed that there will be some moment, scene, or revelation frozen in the back of my mind that I’ll never be able to get out of my head, not even if I scrub it with wire wool so it bleeds.”
“[Smith] recalls Stephen King’s ability to set a story in the world of the commonplace, then suddenly jolt it into a more hellish realm.”
—Janet Maslin, New York Times
“Smith writes the kind of dreams we don't like to talk about, but can't get out of our minds once we've had them.”
“Smith's hauntingly nasty stories are laced with an odd sort of beauty.”
“Michael Marshall Smith's short stories are consistently sharp, slick, original, witty, disquieting, entertaining, and plain brilliant.”
“The pacing is excellent, the plotting brisk ... scary brilliance.”
—Baltimore Sun on KILLER MOVE
“A masterpiece . . . brilliantly written and scary as hell.”
—Stephen King on THE STRAW MEN
“A well-constructed, terrifying story.”
—USA Today on THE INTRUDERS
“A genuinely scary thriller with satisfyingly malevolent villains.”
—The Sun Herald (Sydney) on BAD THINGS
