A library patron is trying to identify a short story collection she bought in the late 1980s - mid 1990s. Some of the stories she remembers:

  • A candlemaker who at first hoards his candles but then learns to share

  • A pagan stoneworker superstitious about working on a Christian statue. He gouges the statue's eyes out and causes his own death.

  • A man who one day finds his journal entries written in blood and realizes a doppelganger is invading his body.

  • 2
    Can your patron include any more information? Such as any more plot details? Anything about the cover? Anything - gender, nationality, etc - about the author(s)? Any small detail can be helpful - there's a checklist halfway don this page that may be helpful :) – Mithrandir Dec 3 '17 at 20:59
