As a result, some of the stories may seem outdated, but they brilliantly illuminate how quickly technology has advanced in one short decade. In Pat Cadigans tales, social issues morph into monstrous fantasy--like the what happens to Milo, the kid whos always left out, in the chilling Eenie, Meenie, Ipsateenie.

The story Heal will keep the likes of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker awake at night, pale and unblinking in their beds. Particularly harrowing is the tale My Brothers Keeper, in which a girls struggle to rescue her brother from heroin addiction uncovers something far uglier going on in the dark recesses of the inner city.Patterns is reminiscent of Ray Bradburys short stories, but with malevolent twists and psychotic turns that leave the reader waiting on tenterhooks for the final punch line.

Fans of Cadigans work will particularly enjoy the introductions she has written for each story. Those wanting to read her for the first time may find her novels a better introduction. --Jhana BachContents:Angel (1987)Another One Hits the Road (1984)Eenie, Meenie, Ipsateenie (1983)Heal (1988)It Was the Heat (1988)My Brothers Keeper (1988)Patterns (1987)Pretty Boy Crossover (1986)Roadside Rescue (1985)Rock On (1984)The Day the Martels Got the Cable (1982)The Power and the Passion (1989)Two (1988)Vengeance Is Yours (1983)
