KIRKUS REVIEW

Most of these pieces have appeared in McCall's, Playboy, the Saturday Evening Post and even one in Collier's (the late). It is not surprising that there is a note of similarity-in these stories of the pleasant -- not grim -- supernatural since there has been recently quite a demand for the neat gimmicky tale of the creepy crepuscular. The subject is varied -- people of the past force a town to reject ""improvements""; a criminal returns a pursuing officer to the 1880's; a man ascends in a balloon with someone else's wife; a condemned man paints a door to rescue in his cell; a love letter flutters from the dead to the living; a man swallows a love potton, etc. Pleasant enough, these are really zoned for teens and Twlight.
