We all have a fascination for things that scare us—the thrill, the heart-stopping jump scares, the terrifying suspense. From the youngest age, we’re fascinated by the fiendish and furry, the creepiest critters, the naughty and the nasty. Horror is all around us, from the clowns who hide under our bed, to the things we might drag up from the brook at the bottom of the garden, and the zombies who crawl our streets.
As author, Megan Feehley, so beautifully says; there is beauty just before the terror…a silken breath taken before the spill of righteousness…the warmth of a licking flame preceding the scald.
So, close the drapes, check the locks, turn on all the lights and get comfortable. But don’t close your eyes…
Never close your eyes...

And who is Death? What does he like—how does he like his tea, does he really like using a scythe, is Death even gendered?
Death can take many forms, reap many souls. Death is unforgiving; yet can be gentle, almost kind. Death is the Ferryman; the driver of a cart with bones rattling against the road; Death is many things, but most importantly, Death is inevitable.
Find out answers to these questions and more, as authors from all over the world pursue Death in this collection of 100-word stories from Black Ink Fiction. When the Reaperman knocks, what will you do?
