The Children of IREM

“I’ll probably be dead by the time you watch this, the VHS tape clasped in my cold, dead hand. But, in a way, I don’t really mind. Not too many people get to see their dreams realized.”

A collection of terrifying and esoteric short stories from the postulant horror writer, D. H. McKee.

There are things in the dark corners of the world which are better left unseen. Shadowy imprints of people and objects long forgotten, rubbing against the fabric of our reality, ready to stab through the threadbare matter of the here and now.

Fifteen weird tales swarm up from the pages, surrounding you, lurking just out of reach, waiting for you to turn out the light. Even the mundane becomes questionable: Do you trust the mournful whistling of the custodian as he sweeps the leaves from the ancient sidewalk? What about the ghostly shadows of children dancing against the far wall of the square? Or how about those strange, creaking vines growing in the cracks beneath every building in the city? The ones which seem to move away as you step closer.

If H. P. Lovecraft and Stephen King had a strange, eldritch love child, it would read this book.
