Janey in Amber: A woman visiting her mother’s house encounters some uncomfortable realities about her own life.
Santos del Infierno: In a tale set in the world of Clive Barker’s “Hellbound Hearts” (Hellraiser), a man loses his family and gains a new friend—one with a dark agenda.
The Strip: At the edge of a city plagued by zombies, a small community gathers to try to watch out for one another’s humanity. But when it goes, it’s gone . . . .
Nine short works of terror by award-winning novelist and comic book writer Jeffrey J. Mariotte. Some of these stories have appeared in Hellbound Hearts, The Stories in Between, and Zombie Cop, while others are published here for the first time.
“You don’t often see short horror stories that even hint of man’s virtue, how our love for others is intrinsic and how our first thoughts in a horrific situation would be for the welfare of others. Yet each and every one of the stories in Nine Frights, as upsetting and as dark as most of them are, leave the reader with a positive perception of human nature, a glimmer of hope, or at least an understanding of why choices were made.”
