Damn fine story! So creepy and cool! A must read!
#16: The Cipher – Kathe Koja (Dell Abyss, 1991)
At the tail end of the Horror Boom, the Dell Abyss line went against the grain from the typical horror paperbacks crowding the shelves, and put out books that broke free from convention. This was also true of their book covers. Both grotesque and surreal, The Cipher is one of the better titles to emerge from this short-lived imprint.
