This collection features ten gripping and darkly imaginative stories by Taylor Grant, one of the horror genre’s rising stars—including the Bram Stoker Award nominated tale “The Infected.”
Discover what happens when:
- An author stumbles upon an incomplete manuscript by his deceased father, and makes the grave mistake of trying to complete the story.
- A wealthy industrialist awakens after ten years in suspended animation, and finds out that the horrors of the past can never be left behind.
- A lonely man realizes that he’s gradually vanishing from existence, into a nightmarish limbo of his own making.
- A woman learns that the imaginary voices that haunt the delusional and criminally insane are, in fact, real.
These stories expose terrors beneath the surface of our ordinary world, behind people’s masks of normalcy, and lurking in the shadows at the farthest reaches of the universe.
