Editor Douglas Draa (Weirdbook, Startling Stories, The Fall of Cthulhu) has amassed a legion of comic horrors, of killer clowns, of grease painted ghouls. Featuring short stories by Craig Sawyer, Larry Thacker, James Goodridge, Anthony A Labriola, DC Philips, Rie Sheridan Rose, DJ Tyrer, Yvonne Lang, Anna Pembrey, Scott Harper, Matt Micheli, Brandon Barrows, Vonnie Winslow Crist, Teel James Glenn, Burgess Wilder, Alicia Hilton, and M Stern...
And you'd better believe it. They're all funny. Yeah.
Funny as a Heart Attack...
Settle your mask into place. It’s time for the Halloween Party to begin.
You have been invited to open this book to experience stories so macabre, so horrifying, that we must recommend you read them before dark. Make the unwise choice to read one of these unsettling tales just before switching off the light, and we cannot promise that you will live to see the next morning sun.
Thank you for coming to our party. It was nice to know you while you were among the living.
