Your nose is to the grindstone, day after day. You spend your work hours overworked and underappreciated, only to return home and deal with bills, landlords, and the ever-oppressive shadow of capitalism consuming you and everything you love. The horrors of capitalism are the horrors we all face every day, and they are confronted head-on in ProleSCARYet: Tales of Horror and Class Warfare. Contained within are nineteen tales of capitalism gone wrong--from designer children to deadly bosses, predatory lenders to plague-ridden laborers--all revealing the dark underbelly of economic oppression from some of horror's best independent and emerging writers from around the globe. In solidarity, there is strength against terror and fear. Let these stories be your guide, because, after all... "What the bourgeoisie therefore produces, above all, are its own grave diggers. Its fall and the victory of the proletariat are equally inevitable." -Karl Marx
A thrill-seeker studies a language learned through close encounters with death. A flock of extinct birds haunt a grieving woman for reasons unknown. A boy participates in a public access cannibal cooking show to win his family's love. A couple panics when Mothman shows up to their slice of rural paradise with omens in tow. In his debut short story collection, Eric Raglin presents sixteen queer and weird horror stories.
