The first book in our Complete Short Fiction of Charles L. Grant, originally published in 1982, is truly “historic,” as it was the first time Grant published four novellas with linking material around a common theme. It is, in effect, a tone poem — almost a symphony. It was so successful that he repeated the format three times. Nightmare Seasons won the World Fantasy Award for Best Collection/Anthology, besting Stephen King’s Different Seasons and Dennis Etchison’s The Dark Country. This edition includes a special introduction by novelist and critic Don D’Ammassa.
