Crabs are evil looking sods but surely if you ran at high speed in a straight line away from them you would probably be fine, as they meander sideways like Space Invaders or me walking home from the pub after a night out.

Then again maybe Crabs are in fact masters of disguise that rely on the element of surprise. (never trust a crab with a moustache.)

I've never read a Crabs novel so would probably be the first one to fall victim to a psychotic crustacean.

Will keep that in mind i read the first one but can't really remember it getting the bundle for 15 quid is a bargain.

Just arrived. I ordered it last year. It was supposed to be out in January. So only ten months late. Stephen Jones was obviously too busy making Blu-ray extras to compile books.

There really aren't any visible scuffs in the bottom right corner. The camera never lies. Bollocks it does.

Ah ok. I have that one in another anthology from Stephen Jones. Very good Lovecraftian story. I don't know much of Wagner's work. Most of it seems to be out of print and very pricey. I have Sticks in The Mammoth Book of Zombies.
