In this monstrous collection of thirteen dark fantasy stories, Rob E. Boley presents a diverse array of imaginative, horrifying tales, including several that have never been published.
These works feature familiar creatures such as zombies, demons, interdimensional gods, werewolves, vampires, and even zombie werewolves. Boley also introduces some of his own monster creations, such as the man who knows everything, a cursed hole, a heartsick moon, and the woman whose own body is haunted. Beyond the bloodshed, these poignant stories explore themes of loss, love, and lust.
Bizarre, eerie, and relentlessly compelling, Better Alive Than Dead is a treat for fans of dark fantasy, horror monsters, or twisted tales.
