Description

The brightest names in horror showcase a ghastly collection of eighteen ghost stories that will have you watching over your shoulder, heart racing at every bump in the night. In "My Life in Politics" by M.R. Carey the spirits of those without a voice refuse to let a politician keep them silent. In "The Adjoining Room" by A.K. Benedict a woman finds her hotel neighbour trapped and screaming behind a door that doesn't exist. George Mann's "The Restoration" sees a young artist become obsessed with returning a forgotten painting to its former glory, even if it kills her. And Laura Purcell's "Cameo" shows that the parting gift of a loved one can have far darker consequences than ever imagined...

These unsettling tales from the some of the best modern horror writers will send a chill down your spine like someone has walked over your grave... or perhaps just woken up in their own.
