52-copy lettered traycased edition for $150

Closing Time

“These well-told tales are proof that quiet horrors wrought by a skilled writer can make powerful reading.”

— Publishers Weekly

“There is something almost tangibly wicked about (Ketchum’s) short stories… This excellent new collection compiles the vivid range of styles and subjects that have made this author a cult favorite and mainstream success.”

— Creature Feature

“I’m delighted to say (Ketchum) is in top form in CLOSING TIME AND OTHER STORIES… It should come as no surprise to his fans that Ketchum pulls off feats of violence and poignancy with equal aplomb.”

— Bookgasm

“Nineteen stories of tragedy and nightmare, compassion and funeral memory, Closing Time is a bittersweet poem to the age we live and sigh and die in.”

— INFINITYPLUS.COM
