A hotel offers a taboo service for its troubled clients. A young man must wind a thousand clocks before sunset. A vampire library attacks its readers. A shy young man loses a dog and discovers the cutlery of the Marquis de Sade. A lottery winner soon wishes he hadn't won. Deranged office workers take over a building. Incarceration, incantations, revenge, romance and the end of the world - twice. Personal Demons are Christopher Fowler's tales of the macabre, the fantastic and the wilder side of modern urban living. They reflect the rich and various literary talents of a writer called 'ghoulishly irresistible' by The Times.
