Publisher's Summary

Introduction by Paul Tremblay.
Publishers Weekly top 10 list for most anticipated Horror/Sci-fi Fall 2016 releases.
Laird Barron's fourth collection gathers a dozen stories set against the backdrops of the Alaskan wilderness, far-future dystopias, and giallo-fueled nightmare vistas.
All hell breaks loose in a massive apartment complex when a modern day Jack the Ripper strikes under cover of a blizzard; a woman, famous for surviving a massacre, hits the road to flee the limelight and finds her misadventures have only begun; while tracking a missing B-movie actor, a team of man hunters crashes in the Yukon Delta and soon realize the Arctic is another name for hell; an atomic-powered cyborg war dog loyally assists his master in the overthrow of a far-future dystopian empire; following an occult initiation ritual, a man is stalked by a psychopathic sorority girl and her team of horrifically disfigured henchmen; a rich lunatic invites several high school classmates to his mansion for a night of sex, drugs, and CIA-funded black ops experiments; and other glimpses into occulted realities a razor's slice beyond our own.
Combining hardboiled noir, psychological horror, and the occult, Swift to Chase continues three-time Shirley Jackson Award winner Barron's harrowing inquiry into the darkness of the human heart.

Keeps on getting better...

Laird Barron's collections are always going to be worth your time and hard earned cash, I don't know how he does it but with every new release he just keeps on getting better. This collection proves it. Dark tales from the cold settings of Alaska with a common thread of the cosmic... and often human 'evil' running through them. Wonderfully written, hard bitten protagonists
Narration is excellent... If a little too fast.
10/10!!
