The Metamorphosis and Other Stories (Dover Thrift Editions) - Stanley Appelbaum

It's a wonderfully weird book. So far I've read "The Judgment" and even after the third reading of this story I'm still not sure I've made sense of it; "The Metamorphosis" the reason I'm reading this for CREEPY CRAWLIES" and a brilliant and evocative tale, and I'm most of the way through "The Penal Colony", reading about a strange machine that tortures an accused prisoner to death through language.
