KIRKUS REVIEW

 Eight mild spine-tinglers, each with a twist at the end: Helen sells magazine subscriptions to a ``Fortune-teller,'' then learns that the woman has been dead for weeks; terrorized by an oncoming tidal wave in his ``Dream World,'' a teenager is admitted to a mental hospital and later found dead in his bed, lungs filled with seawater; a macho hunter becomes ``The Hunted'' when he callously kills a deer and is transformed into one himself. The author stays away from explicit gore or violence in these simply written stories, and his themes--just desserts, and the dangers of arrogance--are developed unambiguously. Though more sedate than Jennings's Unreal! (1985) and its sequels, this collection will also appeal to reluctant and less practiced readers. (Fiction. 11- 15)
