A mostly top notch collection of short stories.

Contents (and my review of each;l plot details contain spoilers. Rating is out of 5 stars):

* Button, Button - good premise, well told. By now everyone probably knows the plot, but there are at least two different endings floating around, so you may still be surprised. (4.5 stars)
* Girl of My Dreams - a man whose wife's dreams foretell the future tries to cash in on her gift by extorting people whose tragedy she dreams of (4 stars)
* Dying Room Only - a woman's husband disappears from a roadside diner (3 stars)
* Flourish of Strumpets - a couple is bothered when door-to-door prostitutes keep ringing their doorbell. (3 stars)
* No Such Thing As A Vampire - a woman is attacked by a blood-seeking creature night after night even though her husband sleeps in the same room with her (4 stars)
* Pattern For Survival - a writer submits what he and every character in the story thinks is a great writing achievement (4.5 stars)
* Mute - a boy is brought up to be a telepath but cannot speak (4.5 stars)
* The Creeping Terror - the lifestyle of Southern California seems to be infecting the rest of the country (4 stars)
* Shock Wave - a church organ about to be retired revolts (3 stars)
* Clothes Make the Man - a suit of clothes takes on a life of its own (3 stars)
* Jazz Machine - not sure what it's about. Written as a poem and I didn't read it.
* "Tis the Season to Be Jelly - also didn't read. Dialogue was all hillbillyish and hard to follow.

well, this was different! the movie 'The Box' is based on a short story (I won't give any of it away) this book is just several short stories, some are good and some are not, depends on your taste in stories, for me it was 'ok'
