Death is an integral part of life, waiting on the other side for each of us.
Writers, however, have no need to wait. They can cross the boundary as easily as stepping from one room to another.

These eighteen stories from 2023 will take you into that room and beyond. From death's chamber to the hood of a Camaro, from quiet woods to shrieking space. Death awaits. Let us go and meet it.
