Dolls, puppets, and other human simulacra are objects of fear and wonder in this eclectic anthology of 17 original stories that Ellen Datlow selected for their ability to "mine the uncanniness of dolls for all its worth." Accompanying photos of dolls and their parts intensify the eeriness of these works, which easily transcend their familiar theme.
