In this Shirley Jackson Award-nominated novella, a young man taps the modern day anxieties about serial killers and so becomes a serial killer in order to avenge his own murder. [A] tale that takes several unexpected and delicious turns, somehow combining a Poe-like belligerence and a Clive Barker like vividness (Daniel Kraus, Booklist). This tale comes from Stories from the Plague Years, the debut short fiction collection of International Horror Guild Award- and Bram Stoker Award-winner Michael Marano. ChiZine Publications (CZP) curates the best of the bizarre, bringing you the most excitingly weird, subtle, dark, and disturbing literary fiction.
