The greatest gifts, however, don’t always mean the greatest rewards. The fourth grader learns that a crow’s idea of loyalty may challenge her own. The college student learns that in a battle between herself and fate, neither may be the victor. The commuter never learns her new friend’s name, which may be a gift in itself. The man in the woods sees any connection as a reward — though not necessarily for those he seeks.
Connections with others keep us afloat, in varying degrees and at varying costs. As the man in the woods so aptly says, “We all want closeness and companionship. Some of us just gain that by burying people in the floorboards.”

"Wither and Other Stories" tells four tales of the choice to partake. In the end, the choice may not need to be made. For when we ask ourselves, "Should we or shouldn't we," the answer is always yes.
Someone to Share My Nightmares is a tapestry of horrors interwoven with sensuality. Can our deepest fears be vanquished when they’re shared with someone else? Or is the danger doubled when two people come together?
Josh Malerman New York Times best selling author of BIRD BOX and MALORIE
"Disturbing, evocative, and profoundly haunting, WE ARE WOLVES is a high-def snapshot of the future of the horror genre. It pulls no punches, asks for no quarter, and will leave you breathless. I loved it."
Best-selling author and World Horror Grandmaster Award winner Brian Keene
Once upon a time, there was a woman, and she was tired. Tired of pushing. Tired of being pushed. Tired of feeling alone. Tired of so much.
So she gathered together a pack of wolves, a band of mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, partners, friends, lovers, survivors, victors and brilliant, shining things, and she told them to sing.
And sing they did.
The result is WE ARE WOLVES, a chorus of of terrifying, moving and heart-breaking stories from some of horror’s finest contemporary writers including Gemma Amor, Laurel Hightower, Cina Pelayo, Sarah Read, Hailey Piper, V Castro, Sara Tantlinger, Sonora Taylor and many more.
All proceeds from the sale of this charity anthology will go towards helping the survivors of abuse and assault.
“It takes a wolf to sing for wolves, and these stories sing in the dark”
Kathe Koja, Bram Stoker and Locus Award winning author of The Cipher and Velocities
“We Are Wolves is a collection of stories about survival, violence, vengeance, blood, and how women relentlessly push forward in a world that tries to maul them while asking them to smile. These women will tear you apart and hold you in their hands after, because they are savage wolves, but also goddesses who understand pain, love, justice, and the importance of persistence.”
Gabino Iglesias, author of Coyote Songs
The circle of women is meeting again for the fourth time. Twenty-three authors from around the world have joined together to tell their stories of pacts with the devil, blood sacrifice, demonic encounters, torment and obsession. Horrors of the body, mind, and soul. Don't break the chain of hands as we speak our Dark Oath.
