Little Deaths

the definitive collection of horror from the king of pain

step into new rooms of absolute terror
Five years ago, Bram Stoker Award-nominated author John F.D. Taff welcomed you into the darkest recesses of his mind. Today, he returns to where it all began…opening doors to new rooms of abject horror. Disturbing rooms. Darker rooms.

Rooms where a farmer awakens to find a gigantic tentacle writhing in his fields. Where the desiccated mummy of a young girl wants nothing more than something warm to drink. Where a memorabilia collector resurrects his dead girlfriend with the prop neck bolts from the 1931 movie Frankenstein. And where the sweetest candy of all is a dead man’s flesh.

Little Deaths: The Definitive Collection features 24 stories, five of them new to this edition, plus expanded notes for each tale, a new afterword by the author and a new foreword by Josh Malerman, author of Bird Box and Black Mad Wheel.

“Manages to distinguish itself, but also to raise itself above the rest.”

— Hal Bodner, author of Bite Club

“Creepy horror and heartbreaking stories. Little Deaths has something for everyone.”

— Gabino Iglesias, author of Zero Saints

Little Deaths is dark magic!”

— Josh Malerman, author of Bird Box and Black Mad Wheel

“Takes [readers] to some place dark and uncomfortable. Hands down, Little Deaths is a great book.”

— Simon Dewar, editor of Suspended in Dusk II
