A Funerary Feast of 22 Classic And Rare Monster Stories…
They’re Coming! Under the bed and behind the closet, in dark basements and gloomy attics…they are the whispers in the dark, the growl in the corner…they are everything we fear, and all that we secretly desire…they are us…they are MONSTERS!
They’re all here, a paranormal parade of the dead, demonic and devilish. Vampires, werewolves, zombies, ghouls, and blobs…unnamable entities and marvelous monstrosities, murderous severed hands, demonic frogs…every crawling, lurching, leaping, shambling THING that every stalked a printed page.
This anthology features a wide range of stories from a diverse group of authors, some well-known, others anonymous or forgotten, from the gothic era to the 20th century.
