About the Book

A pair of boys discover Satan’s constrictor locked in a basement room. A group of children dare to defy the curse of the Tree House Ripper. A vampire drains the blood of a baby gorilla with horrifying consequences. A young man copes with the childhood trauma of satanic possession with daily trips to the zoo, but something evil has taken over the family of mandrills at the monkey house. And the werewolf novella, Menacing Shadows: When satanic serial killer Jack Mercy was locked away, he left behind a legacy of murder and a family in ruins. A decade later, the Mercy family has tried to rebuild their lives in White Crag, an affluent ski resort town; but they still live in Jack’s infamous shadow. Twin brothers Neal and Michael have little memory of their father before he was incarcerated, but after a harrowing incident with a werewolf in the forest, Neal discovers that his brother is communicating with their father and carrying on his unspeakable legacy. As Neal and his best friend dig deeper, they discover the curse of the werewolf is not nearly finished with the Mercy family or the town of White Crag. Menacing Shadows is an innovative horror collection that presents a combination of scary fairy tales, nightmarish prose poems, and gay horror, ranging in length from flash fiction to full-length novellas.
