Zombie Land (2013)


Since 2006, the +Horror Library+ series of anthologies has been internationally praised as a groundbreaking source of contemporary horror short fiction stories—relevant to the moment and stunning in impact—from leading authors of the macabre and darkly imaginative.

Filled with Fears and Fantasy. Death and Dark Dreams. Monsters and Mayhem. Literary Vision and Wonder. Each volume of the +Horror Library+ series is packed with heart-pounding thrills and creepy contemplations as to what truly lurks among the shadows of the world(s) we live in.

Containing 30 all-original stories, read Volume 5 in this ongoing anthology series, and then continue with the other volumes.

Shamble no longer through the banal humdrum of normalcy, but ENTER THE HORROR LIBRARY!

Included within Volume 5:

•   In “Jerrod Steihl Goes Home,” a bullied schoolboy brings to class a book of incantations.

•   In “The Happiness Toy,” a shy young woman is visited by a door-to-door salesman who's selling pleasure of a physical kind.

•   In “Footprints Fading in the Desert,” a woman stranded in the desert finds a barefoot savior who promises help.

•   . . . and more!
