Award-winning screenwriter releases his mind-bending first short story collection
Offered for the first time in a collected format, this selection features ten gripping and darkly imaginative stories by Taylor Grant, a Bram Stoker Award ® nominated author and rising star in the suspense and horror genres.
Discover what happens when:
– A wealthy industrialist awakens after ten years in suspended animation, and finds out that the horrors of the past can never be left behind.
– A lonely man realizes that he’s gradually vanishing from existence, into a nightmarish limbo of his own making.
– An author stumbles upon an incomplete manuscript by his deceased father, and makes the grave mistake of trying to complete the story.
– A woman learns that the imaginary voices that haunt the delusional and criminally insane are, in fact, real.
This remarkable collection of short fiction exposes the terrors that hide beneath the surface of our ordinary world, behind people’s masks of normalcy, and lurking in the shadows at the farthest reaches of the universe.
