Be they straight-up monsters or nightmares behind a human mask, they track us and they kill us.
Sometimes, they play with their food, where death would be a kindness. But there is hope.
There are those who search out the monsters, those who hunt the hunters.
These are their stories.
Featuring 13 stories of military horror by some of the best known and emerging writers in the genre.
"By now I've read the entire SNAFU series and I can wholeheartedly recommend 'em -- every one of them delivers the goods."
—Tim Miller, Director of Deadpool
Death. Who has not considered their own mortality and wondered at what awaits, once our frail human shell expires? What occurs after the heart stops beating, after the last breath is drawn, after life as we know it terminates?
Does our spirit remain on Earth while the mortal body rots? Do remnants of our soul transcend to a celestial Heaven or sink to Hell's torment? Are we offered choices in an individualized afterlife? Can we die again in the hereafter? Is life merely a cosmic joke, or is it an experiment for something greater?
Included within this critically acclaimed anthology are answers to these queries alongside tales and suppositions relating from traditional ghosts to the afterlife of e-coli. Explore the afterworld of an Australian cowboy. Discover what the white light really means to the recently departed. Consider the impact of modern, or future, technology on the dead. Follow the karmic path of reincarnation. Travel from the 999th level of Fengdu's Hell to the gates of Robot Heaven.
Enclosed are thirty-four all-new dark and speculative fiction stories, individually illustrated by Audra Phillips, and exploring the possibilities "after death."

On the night that a vicious sandstorm closes the roads and seals the doors, a plague of madness spreads through the hospital. Two staff members try desperately to hold onto their sanity while searching for the cause – and, hopefully, the cure – of the outbreak.
But they’re not alone. In this shared world anthology edited by Brad C. Hodson and Bram Stoker Award® winner Benjamin Kane Ethridge, some of the genre’s most talented authors present their own sanity shattering tales. With fiction by John Skipp, Jeff Strand, Scott Nicholson, Lisa Morton, John Palisano, and many others, the horrible truth is revealed bit by awful bit. Step inside and find out what it’s truly like in the MADHOUSE.
Jim Butcher’s wizardly PI Harry Dresden pranks some high-tech monster seekers—and attempts to save a friend’s son whose life-energy is slowly being drained by an unknown adversary in “I Was a Teenage Bigfoot.” The Author from Hell has dropped dead, but a stressed-out editor is harassed by her emails from beyond the grave in Sherrilyn Kenyon’s “A Day in the Life.” The flesh is weak— and possibly even rotting—as a teenage virgin werewolf discovers on a visit to a brothel in Kelley Armstrong’s “V Plates.” Murder comes alive in “Mannequin,” by Heather Graham, as two thrill-seeking couples “axe” for trouble at a B&B with a bloody history.
Plus twenty-six other tales to tempt and terrorize you. . . .

creeping into everyday suburbia, these abominations of desire will leave you gasping for
breath and your taste for terror satiated.

After being diagnosed with mental illness, Keats wants nothing more than to get away. His first day in Rome he falls in love - and she steals his wallet and passport. See, this isn't the Rome of La Dolce Vita. This is the Rome of confidence scams, warring gangs of pickpockets living in the catacombs, and Robin Hood philosopher kings. Keats falls in with this off-the-grid society and, for the first time, finds himself a part of something. The eclectic group of Misfits (with a capital M) teach him every scam they know and the group's leader, an aging punk rocker they call the Carny, seems to be grooming Keats to be his replacement.
But running from problems is never a good idea. After a series of knife fights, kidnappings, car chases, and a nude sprint across the city, Keats begins to suspect something is wrong with the Carny, something that could put his new family in serious danger. Protecting them, however, will mean a betrayal of everything he holds dear.
Hey, at least he's on vacation.
Funny, romantic, and action-packed, Life on the 64 Bus is a story about how family isn't always connected by blood, no matter how much of it gets spilled.
In this, his first collection of short fiction, acclaimed author and screenwriter Brad C. Hodson visits what Ray Bradbury called "the October Country," that place where it's always fall and dread things whisper from dark corners. The 17 stories inside tell of spirits brought forth by cursed plays, visions waiting in the space between breaths, and fleshly pleasures locked behind attic doors. A couple who have lost a child are given a second chance at parenting while two friends become addicted to dying. Childhood trauma comes back to scratch at the window in one tale while a corpse tears a crime spree across the Midwest in another.
So step into the clearing, pull that log close to the fire, and see why Hodson has been called "a master of atmosphere" and "a writer who easily weaves emotional landmines throughout the fear." Step into the place WHERE CARRION GODS DANCE.
