The Face Phantom: Tales Inspired by the Mütter Museum by Kathleen R. Sands is a chilling, atmospheric collection of short stories, evocative of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story. Each of the twelve tales is inspired by an exhibit at the Mütter Museum, a place that is "gorgeous and repulsive at once" (The New Yorker). From a widow experiencing transcendence in 19th-century Paris to a daughter confronting a sexual taboo in modern-day San Francisco, Sands lures us into the darkest and ultimately most redemptive realms of the human condition. The stories are also available in the hardcover anthology Boy of Bone at the Mütter Museum store.
