Published: Short, Scary Tales Publications - December 12th, 2016

Richard Chizmar, the editor and publisher of Cemetery Dance Magazine, presents a masterclass collection of his own dark stories. His forthcoming novel, Gwendy’s Button Box, co-written with Stephen King, will make him a household name, but his original work is a chilling exploration of family, loss, and regret. Everyday men and women are pushed to horrific extremes, but their lives and deaths are tempered with humanity. In his heartbreaking, post-apocalyptic story, “After the Bombs,” a man searching for his father asks, “How did he die?” An old blind man replies, “I’d rather tell you how he lived.” Memories are a recurring theme in these stories, but they are lies protecting us from the truth. You’ll find many memory boxes of various shapes and sizes, each one a metaphor for a secret self, filled with awful and amazing revelations. In the titular story, the friend of a killer says with bitter irony, “It’s funny the things you remember—and forget.” These tales will haunt you like photos of the dead. – Rob
