Eight Tales of Animal Horror
“Joe Scipione’s Zoo is an imaginative collection that takes readers to the beach, through the forest, into dystopian futures, and more places where insects, animals, and other creatures are more than meets the eye. Through vivid prose and compelling characters, Scipione shows us what happens when power dynamics shift and human hunters become the hunted. Each story tackles a unique concept and delivers a satisfying conclusion -- who, or what, will have the last bite? You’ll have to read to find out!” -Sara Tantlinger, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Devil’s Dreamland
Perhaps She Will Die
"Mysterious, creepy, and unsettling." Calvin Demmer, Author of The Sea was a Fair Master and Dark Celebrations
Lisa Ewing and her family have just moved into their dream house. The neighborhood is perfect and the school system is one of the best, ideal for her two children. Everything is perfect, until Lisa notices the strange behavior of their new neighbor. At first, she chalks his odd behavior up to the fact that he is elderly. But things get worse.
A young girl goes missing and Lisa unearths the long history of disappearances in the same small patch of woods. Lisa is the only person that knows enough about the malevolent creature behind the disappearances and its connection to her new neighbor. Now the creature is after Lisa and her life hangs in the balance.
