Read & Download The Shapes of Midnight ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Rennan's most chillingly memorable tales including Diary of a Werewolf The Horror at Chilton Castle and Canavan's Back Yar. Dover has reprinted 1980 s The Shapes of Midnight minus two stories1 Diary of a Werewolf A recovering New York heroin addict moves to Juniper Hill on the advice of his doctor for a little rest and relaxtion After moving into Hemlock House he begins to keep a diary of his experiences in town He feels a strong disdain for the locals but feels strangely drawn to the old woods near his new dwelling and begins to feel the compulsion to run around on all fours and to kill Soon he becomes convinced he is a werewolf and begins to prey on the inhabitants of Juniper Hill all while trying to learn about his condition real or imagined and stay one step ahead of county lawman Sheriff Macelin and his men2 The Corpse of Charlie Rull Homeless man Charlie Rull suffers a fatal heart attack and falls into a swampy pond Ordinarily that would ve been the end of his story But fate in the form of an accident at a nearby laboratory had other ideas Drop by drop radioactive liuids from the lab seep into the groundwater and contaminate the pond where Charlie s dead body floats The radioactive chemicals infuse every cell in his body and bring him back to life In unimaginable pain from the energy surging through him and filled with a burning hatred for all life the newly misanthropic zombie proceeds to go on a killing spree through the nearby town of Newbridge3 The Pavilion Niles Glendon has a problem It isn t that he murdered his best friend Kurt Resinger over a matter of a loan refused and buried the corpse under the pavilion down by the beach It s the fact recent storms have been disturbing the beach and may uncover Kurt s corpse Time to move it Unfortunately when Niles gets to where he could ve sworn he d buried Kurt the body isn t there Is it too late Has Kurt been found Perhaps Kurt wasn t as dead as Niles thought he was Or perhaps something even sinister is afoot Either way Niles is about to get a lot than he bargained for when he obsessively goes digging around under the pavilion in a desperate attempt to locate the body if he can4 House of Memory Tara Sutter has been perpetually ill ever since her family moved out of her childhood home and the new owners of the property tore the house down a fact Tara refuses to accept When family friends come over for an overnight get together Tara mysterious vanishes from the party and her family and friends fear she may have wandered off to go visit the old house where nothing but an empty cellar hole remains Desperate to prevent her from falling in they rush out to retrieve her but none of them are prepared for what they ll witness when they eventually catch up to Tara at the old Sutter property5 The Willow Platform While exploring the ruins of the old Trobish house Juniper Hill resident Henry Crotell found an old and a ring with a flat black stone hidden in an old lockbox The untitled book is written entirely in Latin prompting Henry to start trying to learn the dead language Postmaster Dave Baines from The Mail for Juniper Hill and his writer friend become concerned about Henry s obsession with the ancient book when schoolteacher Ms Winnis who got a look at its contents reports that it was written by someone pretending to be a sorcerer And when the book directs Henry to begin building a platform out of willow saplings for an unknown purpose Baines and the rest of the town begin worrying that perhaps the author wasn t pretending and that Henry might be getting in way over his head6 Who Was He A man recovering from heart surgery refuses a haircut from the hospital barber Not long after another patient at the hospital dies of fright The next day the same barber returns and the protagonist again turns down his offer of a haircut after which the barber departs and a second patient dies under mysterious circumstances The protagonist begins to suspect that the barber is a serial killer but the facts are even stranger than that once he gets the whole story from the hospital security guard7 Disappearance Dan Mellmer disappeared years ago survived by his identical twin brother Russell Sheriff Kellington and his deputy always suspected foul play as there d always been an element of bad blood between the Mellmer twins But it s only after Russell Mellmer dies that the police learn the awful truth8 The Horror at Chilton Castle A scientist visiting Chilton Castle in Ireland is invited to witness the secret Rite of Passage which Frederick Chilton Payne must undergo following the death of his father Robert the Thirteenth Earl of Chilton9 The Impulse to Kill A man starts getting urges to commit murder and begins deliberately luring criminals to his house in order to kill them justifying it to the authorities as self defense But can he keep it up10 The House on Hazel Street A man starts becoming weirdly obsessed with the Old Dark House he passes by every day One day the front door opens and the owner an elderly man named Jonathan Sellerby invites him inThere were originally twelve stories in this collection back when it was first published in 1980 Canavan s Back Yard and Slime the third and twelfth stories respectively have been omitted for reasons unknown Nearest I can figure is Dover considered them redundant since they re also in Nine Horrors and a Dream another Joseph Payne Brennan short story collection which they reprinted last month but I would ve preferred that The Shapes of Midnight be republished as is Without Canavan s Back Yard and Slime especially the latter the collection ends on a whimper with the underwhelming The House on Hazel Street which has always been my least favorite of the stories between the two collectionsAlso absent is the original 80s introduction from Stephen King I guess Dover couldn t or wouldn t get permission from King or whoever to republish that My hope with this edition of The Shapes of Midnight was that it d replace the 80s version of the book which commands high prices and including Canavan s Back Yard and Slime a much better assortment of stories vs the earlier Nine Horrors and a Dream By omitting these two stories Dover s edition of The Shapes of Midnight is not a replacement at all but effectively a forced companion piece to their reprint of Nine Horrors and a Dream as opposed to both books being able to stand on their own Before it felt like you could get either or Now it feels like you have to get both and redundant or not The Shapes of Midnight feels incomplete without Canavan s Back Yard and Slime
