Inspired by the real-life experiences of the Bell family living in rural Tennessee in 1817. Much has been written about the legend, but the details of their terrifying experience with the supernatural have never been told the way Bram Stoker Award-nominated horror author John F.D. Taff has imagined.
Turning everyday people into reluctant assassins is the primary goal of a shadowy organization. When David Benning is drawn into their web, he's dragged into a world of secrets and payoffs until the true motives of the cabal are chillingly revealed.
An anthology of literary horror coming soon from editor Simon Dewar and a selection of dangerous authors that includes Christopher Golden, Damien Angelica Walters, Ramsey Campbell, Stephen Graham Jones, Bracken MacLeod, Gwendolyn Kiste and more.
