Synopsis

A bookstore that keeps more than dusty old tomes on its shelves, a phantom limb that can reach into the next world, a comic that colors people's lives with terror, graves unable to hold their wares, a collector of haunted artifacts who gets more than he bargains for, a deserted northern highway that brings back a man's worst childhood fears, an encounter with the bogeyman and more. This collection of chilling fiction and disturbing poetry from the dark mind of Mark Leslie includes previously published award nominees along side original works.
