Re: Shakingman and the Dude's Let's talk about horror writing Post...
LMAO!! Not that old man. It was close to 20...25 years ago when I read this anthology. Think I was a freshman in High School, all I can clearly remember is the library and Dandelion Wine and Illustrated Man. I'll be trying to track down the html or pdf files for each story to help you find it.
Also...don't feel to bad about "The Blue Bottle". My stepfather collected antique bottles and tools and he informed me about 15 years back that families kept all their poisons (such as household arsenic and tinctures) in blue crystal and blue glass bottles. It would make sense to marry the two in your mind when trying to remember something such as this.
In the meantime I'll try to see if it's in his Dandelion Wine collection.
