Joyce Carol Oates

The Doll-Master and Other Tales of Horror



Six terrifying tales to chill the blood from the unique imagination of Joyce Carol Oates.

A young boy plays with dolls instead of action figures. But as he grows older, his passion takes on a darker edge…

A white man shoots dead a black youth creating a media frenzy. But could it have been self-defense as he claims?

A nervous woman tries to escape her husband. He says he loves her, but she's convinced he wants to kill her…

These quietly lethal stories reveal the horrors that dwell within us all.

    Me gustaría decir que no me gustó nada nadita. Pero en realidad no sabría explicar por qué no me gustó. Simplemente no fue el libro para mí, o tal vez no fue el momento adecuado.

    but high grades seemed to me a kind of embarrassment, the consequence of hard work as hard work seemed but the consequence of desperation.

    the woman has smiled so hard and so often there are sharp crow’s-feet beside her eyes.
