    is one of the main reasons I am an insomniac. Several years ago, he and a couple of fellow thugs persuaded me to try an anthology. My meat and potatoes are novels, but I soon found a gourmet's delight in short stories so that I spend several nights reading a tale or two from a collection.

    Mr. Gorman's latest anthology exclusively includes only tales written by him. That alone guarantees that each story is top gun material. MOONCHASERS AND OTHER STORIES contains the title novella along with sixteen superior short stories, and an afterward by Koontz. Each story is well written and makes for exciting mystery reading. Especially superb are “Moonchaser” with its teenagers and bank robber friendship theme and “Turn Away”, which the audience will never turn away from finishing, but the other tales are also fun. The guru of short story mysteries has done it to me again by leaving me sleepless in crime fiction with another winning collection.
