BASKETFUL OF HEADS
KILLERS HAVE COME TO BRODY ISLAND. HEADS ARE GONNA ROLL.
When the pease of June Branch's lazy summer of '83 is shattered by a violent home invasion, she has to fight for her life with an ancient Viking axe that can impossibly decapitate a man in a single swipe. Only when this occult blade falls, the severed head lives on...alert, talking, and terrified!
THE DOLLHOUSE FAMILY
PLAYTIME NEVER ENDS.
Alice loves her antique dollhouse more than anything -- she'd kill to escape to the imaginary world within. As it happens, the unreal living dolls who live inside it know that's exactly what the beautiful, sinister dollhouse has in mind...
"Dolls have human form, human features, but their immobile faces turn even the warmest of smiles into an unsettling rictus. And, you know, their eyes don't close. They're watching you while you sleep." -- Mike Carey
THE LOW, LOW WOODS
IF GROWING UP DOESN'T KILL THEM... THEIR TOWN WILL.
In the hollowed-out coal town of Shudder-to-Think, Pennsylvania, two teenage girls wake up in a movie theater with hours missing from their lives... and when they ask questions, they quickly learn that no one around them is entirely what they seem. Except, perhaps, for the Skinless Men in the deep woods, and the Deer Woman who appears by moonlight...
Carmen Maria Machado says it's "Pennsylvania Gothic. Body horror. Environmental horror. There are a lot of different sub-genres going on."
