Horror anthology in collaboration with the JL Writers of Scribophile.
Even when we think we’re safe, our biggest fears can be revealed, our worst nightmares brought to life.
For some, death is inevitable: a suspended detective and killer play a bloody game of cat and mouse; a girl risks her life to save her friends from an urban legend; a doctor’s daughter works to uncover the curse on their wayward ship; and an old lady’s cats are hungry…very hungry.
For others, death would have been an easier fate: a reflection isn’t meant to talk, let alone free itself; a priestess must renew her people’s magic, but that ritual carries a terrible price; and a famous boy rejects a lovesick girl…and lives to regret it.
Through life and death, the only constant is our fear of the unknown: bloody footprints continue to walk around a lighthouse; Grandma’s warnings of the Autumn People are finally heard loud and clear; and a girl moves into a new house to find a bloodstained carpet…that no one else can see.
Keep the lights on and brace yourself for ten creepy tales of horror and misfortune.

The Hymns of Creation
When Trenton Evensong emerges from the forest holding the body of his wife Trisha Clearwater, the most powerful practitioner of Paean in Leon, he finds himself arrested as a shocked nation roils in political discord. As a Silent citizen, one of the few unable to use Paean, he is swept into a murder trial that will shake the laws that restrict the Silent, who have been rebelling against them.
