Overview
A woman rejects her husband's heart - and gives it back to him, still beating, in a plastic box. A little boy betrays his father to the harsh mercies of Santa Claus. A widower suspects his dead wife's face is growing over his own. A man goes to Hell, and finds he's roommate to the ghost of Hitler's pet dog. Giant spiders, killer angels, ghost cat photography, and the haunted house right at the centre of the Garden of Eden. Deliciously frightening, darkly satirical, and always unexpected, Robert Shearman has won the World Fantasy Award, the British Fantasy Award, the Shirley Jackson Award, and the Edge Hill Reader's Prize. Remember Why You Fear Me gathers together his best dark fiction, the most celebrated stories from his acclaimed books, and ten new tales that have never been collected before.

In the 21 offbeat fantasies gathered for Shearman’s third collection (after Tiny Deaths and Love Songs for the Shy and Cynical), characters endure a variety of bizarre experiences that nevertheless crystallize the emotions at the core of each story. In “Pang,” lovers physically give their hearts to one another. Trysting lovers in “Roadkill” injure a mutant creature with their car and soon feel unusually strong emotions about it: nurturing it when their extramarital affair is going well, and grasping for ownership of it when they fall out. In “So Proud,” a selfish husband is angered by his wife’s pregnancy until she begins giving birth to home accessories that he sells to augment their income. No matter how preposterous their premises, these tales abound with credibly drawn interpersonal relationships, rendered with humor and poignancy. (Nov.)
