Overview

Step into a dark, new world of evil with this Bram Stoker Award® Nominated volume of horror.

Somewhere beyond the veil of human perception is a darkened plane where evil things reside. Weaving their horrifying visions, they pull the strings on our lives and lure us into a comfortable reality. But it's a web of lies.

This book is their instruction manual. And it's only the beginning.

FEATURING:

MISTER POCKETS: A PINE DEEP STORY by Jonathan Maberry
Pine Deep is a typical small town, but one with a dark and troubled past. For young Lefty Horrigan, it's just another ordinary day until there's a murder and he comes face-to-face with the town's very strange hobo. Has The Trouble returned to "the most haunted town in America?"

COLLAGE by Jay Caselberg
What would you do if you lost your one true love? Most of us will be faced with that question at some point. Unless we're the one lucky enough to get out first. Love hurts. But why this much?

THE WEIGHT OF PARADISE by Jeff Hemenway
For years, man has tried to live without pain. For Alfie this means fighting the leukemia that's ravaging him. But sometimes it's important to be careful what we ask for.

THREE MINUTES by Sarah L. Johnson
Orphaned John doesn't have a future. Awakened each night by the same horrifying nightmare, he takes to late-night swims to avoid the Dream Eater that plagues his sleep. His goal: hold his breath underwater, for only three minutes, until his nightmares go away.

SECOND OPINION by Ray Garton
Greg hasn't had a bestseller in years. But he believes he has just the right story to revive his career. In need of a fresh set of eyes, he shares it with a friend who offers him a bit more than a second opinion.

THE LAST ICE CREAM KISS by Jason S. Ridler
The mind of a disturbed child is filled with dark and dangerous hallways. There are passages that shouldn't be walked, doors better left unopened and rooms whose secrets are best never revealed.

SCRAP by David A. Riley
Childhood should be a time for carefree days spent playing in the sun. But for two abused boys coming to grips with life on their new English estate, an adventure opens the door to a world of evil and sets in motion a chain of events from which they can't escape.

WHAT DO YOU NEED? by Milo James Fowler
John wakes up in a motel room in the 1970s. But the problem is, it's not the '70s. What is he doing here? How long has he been here? And whose is the terrifying voice on the phone?

THE TROLL by Jonathan Balog
Summer's over and the school year has begun. Marty's life will once again be filled with the drudgery of bullies and homework, until he hears a voice from beneath a bridge. Once he meets the troll, life becomes a lot more interesting.

DELICATE SPACES by Brian Fatah Steele
There are places the world over where the veil between the living and the dead is paper thin. It's only when the dead choose to step through that it's a problem.

RAINING STONES by Sean Logan
A series of gruesome murders plagues San Francisco while memories of an absent father point an alcoholic reporter in a direction he may not want. Are Lonnie's dreams mere hallucinations, or will they lead him down the path into a dark world of religious fanaticism?

SHOW ME by John F.D. Taff
There's something wrong with Joe, and everyone knows it. But that doesn't mean this college junior is off limits when it comes to trying to get into his pants. Beware, once you know Joe, you won't be the same again.

THANATOS PARK by Charles Austin Muir
Evil exists all around us. Sometimes hear it in the drone of a world humming along. Or we stumble upon them in the dark. Either way, we are unable to grasp the magnitude of our false reality.

Editorial Reviews

Horror News Network - Alicia Banks
"This volume is chock-full of some really wonderful horror stories. Every single one is a hit in my opinion."
Hellnotes - Mary Fortier-Shutz
"This compilation of stories acts as a guide book for the evil minions that lurk within humankind and try to destroy it. Think of The Twilight Zone introduction from the popular TV series, and you will get the idea that this compilation is more than just a series of short fictional works."
Fantasy Literature - Terry Weyna
"There are plenty of good stories here to keep you awake at night."
The Horror Honeys - Jocelyn Rivard
"Four creepy Bookworms out of Five for horror lovers - and I will be waiting for Volume 2 even if it does keep me up at night!"
