An aspiring singer/songwriter, Sophie Francis is searching for inspiration, pining for connection, and desperate to know why she feels so different from everyone else. Maybe it’s the ghosts whispering in the apartment above her, or the chilling thoughts writhing in her mind when the ghosts are quiet. Maybe she’s a reincarnated saint abducted as an infant and raised by a former serial killer.
Or maybe she’s just sixteen.
Upon meeting an intoxicating musician named Liam LaSalle and an enigmatic community of misfits known as the Choir of the Lamb, Sophie scampers down a rabbit hole of music, martyrs, and madness. There, she discovers her link to a dangerous legacy and a fiery little girl named Avery Norton.
From two-time Bram Stoker & Elgin Award nominee, Jessica McHugh, Hares in the Hedgerow leads Sophie Francis on a disturbing and transformative journey to expose and harness the darkness in the roots of her family tree.
Legends tell of a hollow earth, a world beneath our own. A world filled with wonders... and danger. But what if the legends are true?

Twelve-year-old Avery Norton is head over heels in love with her best friend. With Paul Dillon at her side, she’s invincible against the slippery roofs of Martha’s Vineyard gingerbread houses, indifferent to sermons from her overprotective mother, Faye, and excited for another buoyant summer on the island.
According to the staff at Taunton Asylum, she’s also a crazed killer.
After uncovering a gruesome secret in her basement, Avery tumbles down a rabbit hole of death, doubt, and deception that leads to her incarceration in Taunton Asylum and threatens to keep her separated from Paul forever. But the more she learns about her past and the matriarch of the Norton family, the more she realizes how much danger she and Paul are in.
From Bram Stoker Award® Nominee, Jessica McHugh, the twisted mind behind The Green Kangaroos and Nightly Owl, Fatal Raven, Rabbits in the Garden begins Avery Norton’s horrifying journey to unearth the truth about her past and the woman who raised her to be a good little gardener.
The crust: Stuffed with dread and despair.
And the sauce: Well, the sauce is always red.
Whether you’re in the mood for a Chicago-style deep dish of darkness, or prefer a New York wide slice of thin-crusted carnage, or if you just have a hankering for the cheap, cheesy charms of cardboard-crusted, delivered-to-your-door devilry; we have just the slice for you.
Bring your most monstrous of appetites, because we're serving suspense and horrors both chillingly cosmic and morbidly mundane from acclaimed horror authors such as Brian Evenson, Jessica McHugh, and Cody Goodfellow, as well as up-and-coming literary threats like Craig Wallwork, Sheri White, and Tony McMillen.
Tales from the Crust, stories you can devour in thirty minutes or less or the next one's free. Whatever that means.
The intoxication from a pint of vodka, the electric buzz from snorting cocaine, the warm embrace from shooting heroin--drinking and drugging provides the height of human experience. It's the promise of heaven on earth, but the hell that follows is a constant hunger, a cold emptiness. The craving to get high is a yearning as intense of any blood-thirsty monster. The best way to tell the truths of addiction is through a story, and dark truths such as these need a piece of horror to do them justice. The stories inside feature the insidious nature of addiction told with compassion yet searing honesty. Drug overdoses are now the leading cause of accidental deaths, and some of the most incredible names in horror fiction have tackled this modern day epidemic.

Rebecca Malone has problems. Not just the alcohol. Not just her husband's inane attempts at writing a bestselling novel, their teenage daughter's promiscuity, or her certifiable mother. Not even her lover, who wants to take her husband's place in Cherrywood Lodge, the famous estate she now calls home. Her biggest issues start the moment she discovers a chest of ancient mahjong tiles in the basement of her new house, causing her life to spin out of control with hallucinations, sexual deviances, and grisly murders. Is the mahjong game haunted? Or are Rebecca's problems part of a different game, started before she was born?
