A chilling collection of psychological suspense and literary horror from the multiple award-winning author of the national bestseller The Cabin at the End of the World and A Head Full of Ghosts.
From global catastrophe to the demons inside our heads, Tremblay illuminates our primal fears and darkest dreams in startlingly original fiction that leaves us unmoored. As he lowers the sky and yanks the ground from beneath our feet, we are compelled to contemplate the darkness inside our own hearts and minds.
In ‘The Teacher,’ a Bram Stoker Award nominee for best short story, a student is forced to watch a disturbing video that will haunt and torment her and her classmates' lives.
Joining this haunting work are stories linked to Tremblay’s previous novels. The tour de force metafictional novella ‘Notes from the Dog Walkers’ deconstructs horror and publishing, possibly bringing in a character from A Head Full of Ghosts, all while serving as a prequel to Disappearance at Devil’s Rock. ‘The Thirteenth Temple’ follows another character from A Head Full of Ghosts - Merry, who has published a tell-all memoir written years after the events of the novel.
