"The range of authors in this collection is impressive. As Christopher Golden writes in the introduction, there is everything from 'superstars to rising stars to the very first sparks of hoped-for careers,' making this an ideal horror sampler." -Danielle Trussoni


Not all monsters are fantasy. Some are very real, and they walk among us. They're our friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers. They're the people we're supposed to trust...and they know it. Contained within this anthology are 35 never-before-published works by supremely talented authors and best-selling novelists. Brace yourself for the unexpected and unimaginable horror of…human monsters. Edited by Sadie Hartmann and Ashley Saywers of Night Worms. Cover art by Olly Jeavons.
