The Worm In Every Heart

(2006)
A collection of stories by

 
 
Seventeen short stories of horror by the award-winning author - including "Bottle of Smoke", which was adapted into an episode of HBO's The Hunger.

In her debut collection of short stories, International Horror Guild Award - winning author Gemma Files takes us into a world of black magic and bleak desire. It is a world where obsession is stronger than death; where body, soul, time, and space are all fluid - and treacherous. Here, living houses dream longingly of oblivion, vampires ache for more than simply blood, and the only escape from the darkness within is to embrace it. Indeed, it is a world not so very different from our own.

"The Worm In Every Heart beckons readers to a literary danse macabre that spans the ages and swirls through the cultural mosaic. The grim melody of life's bleakness blends well with the dark harmonies offered in these stories." - Nancy Kilpatrick, from the introduction
