Just buy this. You can borrow mine if need be but read it.

Whether you call it weird fiction, cosmic horror, or just horror, this book can't be defined by such a simple description. He has a really weird way of getting under the skin and sticking around. I've closed a lot of books and moved on to not think of them again but none of Laird's books allow that. I don't know if this is the best book to start with in his collection, but I know this is one of my favorite books as it opened up a new world that I wasn't really aware of. I have always liked purchasing books on amazon for the suggestions offered. This book popped up and I don't know what it was that made me click buy now. It not only opened my eyes to Barron's work (and Old Leech) but then the search for the rest of the anthologies that he has written for. That led me to John Langan, Phillip Fracassi, Nathan Ballingrud, Jon Padgett, etc. Basically, thanks to Laird Barron, I learned of the wonderful world of weird fiction. PS. Stay away from Black Ram Lodge. And anywhere you see the sign of Old Leech.
