Jack Ketchum is back with a brand new short story collection, full of the horror and terror we’ve come to love and expect from the author Stephen King has called, “one of the best in the business.”
What Ketchum has crafted in these stories are portrayals of the starkest, darkest aspects of the human condition. These stories are enthralling, expertly constructed, and very very powerful. Some will put a lump in your throat. Some will have you squirming. Some might be so intense and disturbing that they leave you no choice but to put it aside for awhile, catch your breath, and finish when you’ve worked up the guts.
This is fiction that does far more than “entertain,” and it goes far beyond what we expect when we read “horror.” No haunted houses here, no pitchfork-wielding devils with horns on their heads. The only monsters are the very worst kind: humans.
