This is a collection of three horror stories. The title story, which is substantially longer than the other two, recounts the revenge of Frank Dominio on his former bosses after he is unfairly sacked; a revenge both facillitated and made more Gothic by the dark powers he somehow acquires. The revenges are not necessarily bloody: one hapless victim, for example, is trapped in a world of endless doors so that whenever he opens one, there's another behind it.

Shell's decision to pull out of Britain's largest wind farm project leaves our national renewable energy sector looking decidedly deflated this morning. The "London Array" was intended to be the world's biggest wind farm, with its 341 turbines planned for the Thames Estuary. The scheme's designers hoped it would be capable of generating 1,000 megawatts, enough to power a quarter of the capital's homes. Shell had an equal share in the project with E.on and Denmark's DONG Energy. Now the oil conglomerate has put its stake on the market, the entire project is in jeopardy.
