We have something to enthrall lovers of horror and suspense. Remember this book ? Horror as a genre is not something that we get to read very often. But when we do get one, it mostly has been an absolute pleasure. So lets see what you think about this short stories collection ?
What is it that we fear?
An evil presence around us, watching and waiting for a small slip, or the realisation that the malevolence is within us and has already made its move ? Wreath and Other Stories will take you into world that is slightly off its hinges- a bizarre, eerie realm. In short, a world much like our own, if only we would notice it. A dangerous obsession of an artist, a broken childhood promise, a birthday gift gone horribly wrong, a soldier trapped in a nightmare, a warning from beyond the grave, a writer’s new lease of life in a “suicide central”, a patient’s struggle with insanity, a terrible crime in an idyllic artists’ town, a man’s record of his last moments, a bride haunted by her past…With grey characters, a creeping sense of dread, and a twist at the end, it will ensure that you go to bed satisfied, having had your fill of a world of wickedness and terror…until that world engulfs you in your dreams.
