Read full description of the books:
As with Ketchum's other short story collections, CLOSING TIME is entertaining enough, but not really worth your hard-earned money. About a third of the book (including the titular novella) is material already available in other collections, and three of the stories feature Ketchum writing about his former pets--a subject of no interest to me whatsoever. The last thing I want from Ketchum is another damn cat story.
A few of the pieces were really good. "Elusive" and "Honor System" were two stories with very intriguing premises (though lacking somewhat in terms of resolution). "Consensual" was fun in a nasty sort of way. And "Closing Time" was a nice effort, though I'd read it before.

Read information about the authorJack Ketchum is the pseudonym for a former actor, singer, teacher, literary agent, lumber salesman, and soda jerk -- a former flower child and baby boomer who figures that in 1956 Elvis, dinosaurs and horror probably saved his life. His first novel, Off Season, prompted the Village Voice to publicly scold its publisher in print for publishing violent pornography. He personally disagrees but is perfectly happy to let you decide for yourself. His short story The Box won a 1994 Bram Stoker Award from the HWA, his story Gone won again in 2000 -- and in 2003 he won Stokers for both best collection for Peaceable Kingdom and best long fiction for Closing Time. He has written eleven novels, the latest of which are Red, Ladies' Night, and The Lost. His stories are collected in The Exit At Toledo Blade Boulevard, Broken on the Wheel of Sex, and Peaceable Kingdom. His novella The Crossings was cited by Stephen King in his speech at the 2003 National Book Awards.
