Coming “Early 2017” from Stiched Smile Publications, this is an anthology I’ve been excited to be a part of for quite some time. Not only did inspiration strike when I first read the description with nearly a fully formed story that takes place in my set of Black Pyramids short stories but look at some of these other amazing authors that are involved! Just look at them!
What unholy pact did the very first vampire make to become what they are now?
How did Werewolves become slaves of the moon?
Who was the first Ghost in the world and how did they react?
The Mummy, The Hunchback, The Phantom Of The Opera, The Invisible Man, and even The Creature From The Black Lagoon…
How did they come to be?
How do they deal with their new nature?
And who suffers because of it?
BRAND NEW FICTION FROM JOSH MALERMAN, GARY MCMAHON, LAURA MAURO AND MORE!
