Stitches and Threads

A collection of modern-day fiction inverting witchcraft and demonology tropes. With supernatural, occult, hauntings, and creatures of a different slant, each story rips the fabric of our reality. These loose stitches and threads give us the ability to see, not just in the dark, but the very dark itself … the core of fear.

This book includes the following:
