Some are zombies, returned from death to eat the flesh and brains of the living. Some are ordinary animals, no longer content to linger at the bottom of the food chain. Some are were-creatures; humans able to assume animal form, and oh-so-very hungry when they do... SMALL BITES presents nearly 200 horrific stories, all told in a mere 500 words or less. Their tones range from the subtle to the extreme, from the humorous to the erotic. There is something here to satisfy the taste of any horror-lover's palate. Here, well-established authors sit side-by-side with up & coming stars of the small press and new comers seeing their very first stories in print. Over 100 writers rose to the challenge of writing scary tales using only a handful of carefully chosen words. This is horror stripped down to its bare bones, without an ounce of fat. These tales bite fast and they bite deep. And now, they're ready to sink their teeth into you... *Also from the back cover* - Proceeds from the sale of this book are being donated to the medical fund established for horror writer CHARLES L.
