A joy to read from start to finish. —Margaret McMullan, author of Where The Angels Lived: One Family’s Story of Loss, Exile, and Return

 

josh woods builds his horror stories at the molecular level, so you won’t find any cookie-cutter scares in this collection—expect to be surprised, shocked, and in awe of this collection of terrors and nightmares that can wriggle into the psyche of even the most ardent horror fan. —fred venturini, author of The Heart Does Not Grow Back

 

the stories in this wonderful debut collection are, first and foremost, a big old hoot. they’re funny (both funny-strange and funny-haha) and entertaining, and they read like lightning. those surface virtues, which are nothing to sneeze at, are just the tip of the iceberg, though: these tales are frequently shockingly deep, drawn from ancient sources and from inky wells of human understanding. and the message is this: there are monsters all around us, and the worst of them might just be you. enjoy, and beware. —pinckney benedict, author of Miracle Boy and Other Stories
