A widower suspects his dead wife's face is growing over his own. A man goes to Hell, and finds he's roommate to the ghost of Hitler's pet dog. Giant spiders, killer angels, ghost cat photography, and the haunted house right at the centre of the Garden of Eden. Deliciously frightening, darkly satirical, and always unexpected, Robert Shearman has won the World Fantasy Award, the British Fantasy Award, the Shirley Jackson Award, and the Edge Hill Reader's Prize.

Engaging and diverse, this compendium offers a fascinating perspective on mortality"--Publisher's description
They do the same things different there by Robert Shearman( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Shearman visits worlds that are unsettling and strange. Sometimes they are just like ours--except landlocked countries may disappear overnight, marriages to camels are the norm, and the dead turn into musical instruments. Sometimes they are quite alien--where children carve their own tongues from trees, and magic shows are performed to amuse the troops in the war between demons and angels. There is horror, and dreams fulfilled and squandered, of true love. They do the same things different there
