The fireman is coming. Stay cool.

No one knows exactly when it began or where it originated. A terrifying new plague is spreading like wildfire across the country, striking cities one by one: Boston, Detroit, Seattle. The doctors call it Draco Incendia Trychophyton. To everyone else it s Dragonscale, a highly contagious, deadly spore that marks its hosts with beautiful black and gold marks across their bodies before causing them to burst into flames. Millions are infected; blazes erupt everywhere. There is no antidote. No one is safe.

Harper Grayson, a compassionate, dedicated nurse as pragmatic as Mary Poppins, treated hundreds of infected patients before her hospital burned to the ground. Now she s discovered the telltale gold-flecked marks on her skin. When the outbreak first began, she and her husband, Jakob, had made a pact: they would take matters into their own hands if they became infected. To Jakob s dismay, Harper wants to live at least until the fetus she is carrying comes to term. At the hospital, she witnessed infected mothers give birth to healthy babies and believes hers will be fine too. . . if she can live long enough to deliver the child.

Convinced that his do-gooding wife has made him sick, Jakob becomes unhinged, and eventually abandons her as their placid New England community collapses in terror. The chaos gives rise to ruthless Cremation Squads armed, self-appointed posses roaming the streets and woods to exterminate those who they believe carry the spore. But Harper isn t as alone as she fears: a mysterious and compelling stranger she briefly met at the hospital, a man in a dirty yellow fire fighter s jacket, carrying a hooked iron bar, straddles the abyss between insanity and death. Known as The Fireman, he strolls the ruins of New Hampshire, a madman afflicted with Dragonscale who has learned to control the fire within himself, using it as a shield to protect the hunted . . . and as a weapon to avenge the wronged.

In the desperate season to come, as the world burns out of control, Harper must learn the Fireman s secrets before her life and that of her unborn child goes up in smoke.

From the time we are small there are things that frighten us. As children we have the monster under the bed, the monster in the closet, and the monster that is this close to snatching us from behind when we're on our way up the basement stairs alone, and we can't look back because if we saw him he'd be real, and he would get us. And as we grow and change the things we are afraid of change with us: in grammar school the monster has moved out into the streets, and we fear "Stranger Danger"; in high school the monsters are inside of us, and we fear failure, and the possibility that we might not fit in; as adults our fears are everywhere, from worry about our jobs to the guy who's driving erratically in the lane beside us to the silent return of "Stranger Danger"-this time fearing for children of our own. As new fears filter into our lives we try to forget the old ones. But, though they might not frighten us any more, they are never quite forgotten. We all remember the monster under the bed; the monster in the closet. I'm forty-five years old and I still won't look back on the basement stairs, because I swear to God that son of a bitch is getting closer every time. What you hold in your hands is the combined work of fifty people who have opened up that dark door in their hearts and minds to offer you one thing-just one thing each-that frightens them, selecting from the gamut of fears they've had in their lives, from childhood to now. Disappearing children, ghosts, road rage, mental instability, vampires and more: somewhere in this book, possibly many places in this book, you'll find the things you are afraid of-even some things you thought you'd forgotten. We hope you enjoy Demonic Visions 5, a book filled with frightening thoughts and boogeymen so numerous and familiar you'll put it down knowing you are not alone in your fears. Especially on those basement stairs. Whatever you do, don't look back.
