“When I was little, I didn’t have an imaginary friend, I had an imaginary bully. She was a little girl of my age, who looked just like me, and took great delight in being cruel. This included doing things to make my parents furious, like punching my little brother. One day, when I was about thirteen, Ludwig showed up and wrapped all two hundred of his copper-bladed arms around this evil version of me. There was a warm light, like a camera flash made of lava, and then she was gone.”– Sam Fleming, “Ludwig”

Or when you are certain your shadow is going to eat you? Or when someone’s mere presence can wither and blight?Perhaps these twenty-one stories are a warning that anything, no matter how small or benign, can be downright evil. Take care with these pages: this book is cursed.

From Scotland and England across the Atlantic to the USA, we meet a pair of twins with a sick sense of humor, a troubled family tormented by ghosts, and a man who keeps a chupacabra as a pet.

I had the great pleasure of co-editing (along with Joshua Winning, author of The Sentinel Trilogy and Vicious Rumer) this international horror collection from American and British authors. I also wrote two of the tales:
In Blackened Fireworks, a high schooler learns a valuable lesson about drinking and driving.
In Waiting For the Wolf, a college student runs across a dangerous mascot.
