They are the silent guardians of our inner spaces. We throw them open to welcome friends and family. We shut them tight against the darkness and trust them to keep us safe. But they also hide our true natures, ward off intruders, and seal away what can never be allowed to escape.
But, what happens when the thing that we rely on the most, welcomes the bad things in? What happens when our protector becomes the thing we fear?
Turn the key, pull back the bolt, unfasten the latch and let the darkness through. Discover 19 tales of terror and despair that lurk on the other side of the Doors in the fourth instalment of Eerie River Publishing’s horror series.

What miracles can one hundred debut to bestselling authors do with 100 words?
Sweet Christmas Hell
All us will say,
Throw cares away!
Christmas is near,
Bring holiday fear
To young and old
Snippets to be told!
Ding dong... ding dong
Horror we bring
One seems to hear
Screaming in fear
Filling the air.
Oh how spirits pound,
Raising the sound,
O'er hill and dale,
Telling their tale.
Gaily they write
Of people’s fright
Snippets of fear,
Christmas is here.
Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas,
Scary, scary, Scary, Scary Christmas.
We watch them feast upon the dead and wonder if our own corpse might be the next feast.
Though often minuscule in size, the fear that embodies us when seeing them can paralyze us.
And one bite can render a grown man dead in mere minutes.
In this collection you will find fictional stories of terror centering around bugs of all kinds including
A horde of termites overtaking a man’s body
A son watching his mother's mental health decline from dementia
A very special way to make honey
And many more creepy crawly stories guaranteed to remind all of us that if it were not for size; we would not be the dominant species upon this earth.
