Titles By Ariana Ferrante
From the mists of time, and ages past,
The muses have gathered; hear now their songs.
A web of revenge spun ‘neath the moon;
A poet’s wife who breaks her bonds;
A warrior woman on a quest of honor;
A painful lesson for a treacherous heart;
A goddess and a mortal, bound together by the travails of motherhood.
Listen to the muses, as they sing aloud…HER story.
Musings of the Muses, 65 stories and poems based on Greek myths, is an anthology of monsters, heroines, and goddesses, ranging from ancient Greece to modern day America. They, like the myths themselves, cast long shadows of horror, fantasy, love, betrayal, vengeance, and redemption. This anthology revisits those old tales and presents them anew, from her point of view.

Bedtime. The twilight of consciousness, the darkness that lies between reality and dreams. Here, on the threshold of slumber, we open the door to myriad dreamscapes, to other worlds and astral planes. A thousand doors to a thousand worlds... and the nightmares that hide within.
Open the door, cross the threshold, and dream the night away. But be careful, and remember:
When you open the door to a realm of nightmares… sometimes you let the nightmares in.
A schoolyard nightmare with a taste for children…
Faceless horrors that prowl the boundary between consciousness and slumber in search of prey…
Houses where dreams and nightmares come to life…
Imaginary friends who bleed into reality…
Old gods who weave webs of nightmares to reveal horrific truths…
A monstrous storyteller who’s just dying to tell a tale about you…
These are just a few of the bedtime stories written by—and for—monsters.
In these pages you’ll find an unforgettable collection of dreams unleashed upon reality and reality transformed into nightmares. Penned by award-winning authors, bestselling writers, and visionary nightmare-smiths, A MONSTER TOLD ME BEDTIME STORIES will remind you what it means to be afraid of the dark.
They warned us not to enter, but we didn't listen. The call too strong to ignore. And now there is no one left to save us.
Beware, these things within the forest will rip out your heart and devour your soul. You will tremble as they revel in your madness, taking everything from you and leaving you with nothing. Delve inside this anthology of what truly lurks within the shadows of the trees.
Eerie River Publishing brings you another round of exceptional horror by award-winning authors from around the globe.

Sweet Christmas Hell
All us will say,
Throw cares away!
Christmas is near,
Bring holiday fear
To young and old
Snippets to be told!
Ding dong... ding dong
Horror we bring
One seems to hear
Screaming in fear
Filling the air.
Oh how spirits pound,
Raising the sound,
O'er hill and dale,
Telling their tale.
Gaily they write
Of people’s fright
Snippets of fear,
Christmas is here.
Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas,
Scary, scary, Scary, Scary Christmas.
