“Counting From Ten”

This is where the countdown starts.

Years before the harm done by Michael Montoure’s SLICES, long before the scars started to form in PERMANENT DAMAGE, this is where you received your first warnings.

Discover the power of images on a screen in “Running Time” and “Interference.” Break the last taboos by “Feeding the Flesh” and playing “A Game of Cities.” Watch as a thief with ten nimble fingers is “Counting from Ten” down to nothing at all.

But you can’t stop here. You have to keep going. It’s the only way to be safe.

You still haven’t been to “Playworld,” where children worship at new altars. You haven’t flipped through the pages of “The Catalog,” in which a killer finds his needs can be met for a price. You need to learn how even imaginary friends can be pushed too far in “Real Enough.” Discover the perfect “Wedding Present” — and find out just how dangerous it can be to walk away from it. Find out how even the oldest stories can be seen from new and deadly angles in “The Wolf’s Tale” and “Passion Play.” And if the hours slip away from you, if you hear “Tuesday Calling” — you’ll know not to answer.

Twelve stories. Twenty-five unforgettable characters. Countless sleepless nights. Read it tonight.

Before the count reaches zero …
