The Visible Filth

A Novella by

When Will discovers a cell phone after a violent brawl his life descends into a nightmare.

Affable, charismatic and a little shallow, he's been skating across the surface of life in a state of carefully maintained contentment. He decides to keep the cell phone just until the owner returns and everything changes. Then the messages begin.

Will's discovered something unspeakable and it's crawling slowly into the light.


"Thoroughly unsettling. Ballingrud knows exactly how to crawl his way under your skin." DREAD CENTRAL

"Ballingrud is a powerful, mesmerizing writer, and The Visible Filth proves he can frighten with the best of them. If I weren't already jealous of what he can do, I would be now." Simon Strantzas, author of Burnt Black Suns

"This is one of those stories you read so you can get to the end so it'll stop scaring you. The problem with The Visible Filth is that it doesn't go away so easy. In your weaker moments some of this imagery will rise, then stick around even when you close your eyes. So go on, open this book up. You won't be forgetting it any time soon." Stephen Graham Jones, author of The Elvis Room

"This isn't the type of horror you can easily categorize, put inside a box and say, 'THIS. This is what makes this story scary.' The Visible Filth is deeply unnerving and you're not sure why. It has all the requisite thrills and chills, but it's what's under the surface that will be your undoing." Joshua Chaplinsky,
