C is for Cannibals, the third book in an epic series of twenty-six horror anthologies. Within these pages you will find a collection of thirteen gut-wrenching stories from some of the finest independent writers on the scene today. From those with a taste for human flesh to people merely trying to survive, C is for Cannibals contains a range of twisted stories not for the weak of stomach. You have been warned!
This western wasteland sprawls across the ruins of what were once the great cities of humankind. Now, beneath the looming devastation, standing on the precipice of extinction, man finds himself driven by temptation and survival to steal and to kill. The innocent huddle in the shades and crevices of civilization’s cemetery, praying to the deafened gods of faded faiths to help them make it through the apocalypse. Then the dark guardians of the new world rise from the deep, stomping over the land, and feeding on the twisted souls of those who survived the first cataclysm.
In its last stand for survival, humanity will tear itself into fragments and then scatter in the winds of war, famine, and fire. Regimes meant to protect the populace, lone heroes, and those determined to make it through the end times will rise and fall, live and die, and cross the broken prairies and scorched lands only to arrive in cities reduced to rubble, crawling with killers and creatures that devour the ghosts of man. They will have no choice but to return to the shattered wilderness of the Dark Frontier.
It is out there, beyond the edges of dead worlds, past the graveyards where the grand plans of man now wither and rot, where all shall find their end, where humanity’s swan song will be swallowed by the black winds of chaos spreading from the hills and mountains. Trapped in the shadows that surround the world, as the wall of the black void closes in, man’s revelation comes down to one question: is the evil out there where the world is dying, or was the Dark Frontier inside us all along?
The Pale Horse has come, and it carries the Black Angel. Get ready to ride.
In a world of shadows, joyful colours are an act of heroism.
Modern tales are filled with clowns who invoke fear not laughter: painted grins covering fanged maws; baggy costumes concealing unspeakable horrors; malevolent parodies of nature.
But the tools of a clown work for good as well as ill: only a trickster could tweak a monster’s nose; make-up is war paint for the modern age; the devil cannot tempt a happy soul.
What if, instead of being the demons of urban legend, clowns were the victims or the heroes of the story?
An entertainer discovers his latest booking is filled with clowns but no children.
A group of ageing clowns seek their Priest-King before the divine is lost from the world forever.
Yorrick’s apprentice shares the truth behind the death of Shakespeare’s most famous clown.
And ten more stories of clowns facing the supernatural.
Pursued into a landscape of death and madness, what can salvation mean?
Leonidas Pyburn and his heirs seek wealth and power in the west but are diverted by a strange and sinister encounter.
As journeys intertwine, fortune, fate, and fell circumstance combine to produce a rarefied tincture, rich with an identity belonging only to the Mountain West.
