THE THING

Overview

These five tales of Lovecraftian weird fiction might keep you up past your bedtime.

SUCCOR THE CHILD: After viewing a sixth-grader’s bizarre chalk drawing, one impressionable townsperson begins to see more than just childish scrawls, and curiosity about the drawing’s subject becomes an all-consuming obsession—literally.

THE THING IN THE WATER: Daniel, a bitter artist, goes on a cruise to take his mind off his upcoming divorce. He meets Cliff, an old man who gives him a much needed ego-boost. But when Cliff offers to help Daniel let go of his anger, Daniel discovers Cliff isn’t being altruistic, and the old man may be far older than he appears.

THE BOOGEYMAN: What stories do the boogeymen tell their little ones at bedtime? Thomas wishes he didn’t know, but he can’t get the monster under his bed to shut up.

THE GRANARY ANGEL: Steffi works on a nighttime graveyard tour in Boston. Recently she’s become obsessed with the statue of an angel at the Granary Burying Ground. The problem: there are no angel statues in that graveyard…and the angel no one else can see appears to be equally obsessed with Steffi.

THE BROADCAST OUT OF TIME: A live Christmas old-time radio broadcast is interrupted when the studio is invaded by a weird green mist.

Meet the Author

Mercy Loomis grew up in a haunted house, and has had quite enough of ghosts for one lifetime, thank you. Though she now lives in a 150-year-old house, it is remarkably ghost-free. (That, or they’re staying on the down-low. She doesn’t care which.) She loves stories about the paranormal because monsters are scary, but less scary than real people. Or at least less depressing.
