A review by bigbookgeek
The Corn Maiden and Other Nightmares by Joyce Carol Oates


Somehow, I have made it this far in life without reading much of Joyce Carol Oats' work! I have read an occasional short story in collections, but that's it. This was such a good collection of shorts that I will now definitely seek out more of her work. Chilling, creepy, and very real, she really knows how to keep readers on the edge of our seats!
