Saboteur Award First Runner-Up for Best Short Story Collection 2016
Twenty quick-snap tales of our twisted world, our fearful hopes, our haunted lives and our strange dreams. From time-travelling libraries to haunted bathtubs, via a barricaded Jenga tower and a crime scene for insects, these bothersome stories spin a web across your brain and wait for your mind to be caught and devoured.
Each story is gorgeously illustrated by Emmy Ingle and the collection itself has been lovingly produced by Sleepy House Press. The tales within its pages collect together the very best flash fictions of a prodigious new storytelling talent.
