These horror tales aim for disquiet rather than terror, but they evoke neither subtle unease nor even a grosser case of the shivers. Many of the stories open promisingly, and with an interesting premise, but the carry-through just isnt there.

In the title story, a mans ordinary suburban life begins to dissolve around him, for no reason. When he realizes that he is gradually disappearing from the memory of his friends and family, he becomes a street person. Eventually, he meets other transients and tells them Remember. Thats all we have. Cling together and remember. No explanation for their transient state is given- no lesson is evident. Are the tales meant to illustrate what happens to men who opt out of everyday life? Who knows? The point is elusive. Disappointing.-- A.M.B. Amantia, Population Action International , Washington, D.C.
