i would reccomend this to fans of The X Files tv show. it has five stories, divided into seven chapters because the first two ("night lights" and "family portrait") are two part story lines.
"Night Lights" is about atmospheric life forms and ball lightning, with an ending that reveals nothing at all. part two has an appearance of Byers and Langly from The Lone Gunmen.
"Family Portrait" was my favorite of the stories. it centers around a camera, some missing people, and and old owner of the camera who wants it back.
"The Kanashibari" is about the Hawaiian myth of the Kanishibari, strangling ghosts that may appear to the victim as an old hag before strangling them in their sleep. the part of the opening scene with the bugs made no sense, and the ending was a bit rushed but overall it was a good story.

the next two stories listed in the table of contents, "Donor" and "Silver Lining" for some reason aren't in the book.

"Tiptoe Through the Tulpa" was another ghost based story. sort of. and there is a suspect who has been in a coma for years. the ending of this one was a bit rushed too.
"Big Foot, Warm Heart" was interesting. it was the X Files' take on Bigfoot/Sasquatch/Skunk Ape/Yeti/etc. it could have been done better, because the plot was complicated, hard to follow and in some spots made no sense. the ending was well done, though.

overall, the book was good. it had stories by Kevin J. Anderson ("Family Portrait" parts 1 and 2), Stefan Petrucha ("tiptoe thoguh the tulpa, "Big Foot, Warm Heart") John Rozum (the "Kanashibari", "Night Lights" parts 1 and 2)
