About the Authors
Up in the attic, a bedtime story outlives its storyteller.
A city boy visits his country cousins and stumbles on a terrifying family secret.
From a film set in the Arizona desert, to an overgrown rambling old house in the Florida swamps, to the dusty streets of a small Mexican town, the stories in this volume plunge the reader into the shadows of a world almost forgotten by modern fables of cold science and bright sunlight. They are the brushed over voices who call a warning to those who would comfort themselves in the thought that monsters aren’t real, and those things can’t happen here. Stories We Tell After Midnight Volume 2 offers up tales of revenge, of hunger, and of the horror that stalks you just beyond the glow of your cell phone light, but only to those who dare turn the page…

And all through the town,
Not a soul stirred,
No one dared make a sound…
Welcome to Deathlehem, where…
… Krampus, not Santa, brings the holiday cheer…
… the lights on the tree, so festive and bright, skitter and crawl and possess a lethal bite…
… malicious little elves, not a jolly one, know if you’ve been naughty—or nice…
… family gatherings often turn deadly.
So enter… if you dare.
A collection of 23 holiday horrors benefiting the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

Mainstream publishers want all-star lineups. Small press publishers often can’t afford to pay pro rates…and even when they can, the names in the table of contents can be limited by the editor’s reach or effort. Bestselling horror, fantasy, and thriller authors Christopher Golden and James A. Moore knew there had to be a better way. Inspired by the efforts of legendary anthology Charles L. Grant, who helped move so many new writers in the horror community’s conversation, Golden and Moore teamed up with Haverhill House’s Twisted Publishing imprint to create…
THE TWISTED BOOK OF SHADOWS
Determined to pay pro rates, the editors crowdfunded the project, and then put the word out as far and wide as possible, loudly and repeatedly encouraging submissions by diverse voices, and recruiting a stellar editorial committee to read along with them, including Linda A. Addison, Nadia Bulkin, Rachel Autumn Deering, Lamar Giles, KL Pereira, and Lee Thomas.
Out of seven hundred stories received through a blind submission process—none of the editors had any idea who the authors were—nineteen made the final cut. Within these pages you will find the beautifully weird side-by-side with terrifying nightmares, horrifying folklore, and hellish futures. Nineteen unique and haunting tales that truly earned their place in a book entitled…

A woman seeks a ghostly experience at an Eco Lodge. Three people learn the difference between a home and a homestead on an asteroid. A woman lives in a treehouse designed by aliens as she nurtures both a prenatal human and a sapling house. A three-hundred-year-old house dreams of its former occupants.
Please join us in our explorations.
In this companion volume to Hazardous Imaginings: The Mondo Book of Politically Incorrect Science Fiction, fourteen stories by Ian Creasey, Andrew Fox, David Wesley Hill, Liam Hogan, Claude Lalumière, and other writers from around the world push the boundaries of what is considered taboo in science fiction. From a society where telling an insult joke is a capital crime to one where letting your faucet drip may cost you your head, from a utopia where inequality and want have been abolished to a hostile planet whose isolated colonists must deal with the aftermath of a sexual assault among their own, these stories pull no punches.
With an introduction by award-winning author Barry N. Malzberg.
