For the fans of Classic Horror! Come plunge into the bewildering world of werewolves, ghosts, psychos, zombies, demons, evil elves and things that should not be named. Follow five friends to the threshold of hell in "Portico," a haunted house story based on a real location: an abandoned observatory on a hill in South Africa. Walk alongside a young boy bent on killing his brother's murderer in "The Nature of the Beast." Even if said murderer turns out to be a mythical African monster, a hybrid werewolf / lion / hyena. Beware your own demons in "The Great Wall of Rubin," a tragic story about an alcoholic who can no longer run (or drive) away from his past. Meet a man whose fear of Christmas is more than justified in "Beyond the Ornate Tree." And meet Rupert, who's tired of the zombie-infested fashion industry, in "Fashionably Undead." These twelve stories explore the theme of lost hope and the on-going struggle to free ourselves from despair. A true journey through the dark.
