About the Book
Besides being weird, fantastic and surprising, the stories in Favorite Monster are flat-out fun. Always a halfstep ahead of the reader, Sharma Shields dares us to follow her through the twisted mazes of her dark rides, tantalizing us with just enough shocks so that when we come out the other side, we immediately want to go again.
– Stewart O’Nan
