"The Lone One and Level Sands Stretch Far Away" by Brian Hodge - Aidan's neighbor Marni is into Parkour and he joins their group as Aidan's wife Tara suspects the two of having an affair. While mapping an abandoned brewery two of the group, Carlos and Drew, go missing and the rest of the team sets out to locate them. What they discover is... inexplicable. They see "Carlos and Drew a few steps beyond Jill, one of them having dropped to one knee, the other poised as if reaching down to help him up. They had turned the color of onyx and tar, although it wasn’t a black of substance. More like they were person-shaped holes punched in the fabric of reality." When Tara sees Aidan and Marni holding hands, she becomes disconsolate and walks backwards into the abyss.

"Group of Thirty" by Jack Ketchum - A horror writer is deceived by a group of thirty people into attending their discussion group because they want to assault him for writing a book based on one girl that some of them knew who was murdered that led to a copy cat killing of another girl the remainder of the group knew. He rains on their parade by telling them he is unable to feel pain and proves it by having one of their number hold his lighter beneath his hand while it burns. They let him go. Sitting in his car he feels pretty good about the encounter and resolves to write about it.

"I Love You, Charlie Pearson" by Jacquelyn Frank - A high school stalker gets more than he bargains for when the object of his obsession turns out to be a cannibal.
