What is horror? It’s not always piercing screams as appendages are involuntarily removed from the body, or blood falling like spring rain. Sometimes it’s the cold chill running down your spine for reasons you can’t explain. Sometimes it’s the realization that most of these stories are only a shade, a whisper, a heartbeat away from being true.
Inside you will find stories that include:
A playing card that leads to murder.
A suicide from an unusual perspective.
A supernatural creature fights for control of a young mother.
An assassin double-crossed.
A teacher’s lesson in critical thinking.
A relationship at a terrible end.
A supernatural twist on poetic justice.
A surprising find in the morgue.
A strange co-worker.
A doomed vacation.
A frightening future.
An army of microscopic monsters.
