Journey into the dark heart of human nature with Moribund Tales. Reminiscent of Victorian gothic, these nine tales explore the sinister and the strange in the everyday. Last Straw of Humanity is a chilling story of brotherly compassion and things best locked away; confused memories of blood and remorse mingle in Broken Glass; a blind traveller is guided by a mysterious voice in The Chaperone, and one girl reborn for a sinister purpose seeks her revenge in Infant’s Fingers. Including the acclaimed stories Tears of Repentance and Internal Abduction, Moribund Tales is a raw and visceral collection from the master of horror, Erik Hofstatter.
