About the Books
Q. When is a short story collection not a short story collection? A. When it is an exercise in extreme horror metafiction… Helen Clarke finds a book on her bookshelf that she has never seen before, simply entitled, ‘The Collection’. Intrigued, she begins to read. At first, the slim book appears to be nothing more than just a collection of short horror stories. But as the secrets that lie within the pages of the book are slowly revealed, her life turns into a waking nightmare. From Gypsy curses, to flesh-eating maniacs and creatures from the depths of Hell, Sam West invites you to take a road-trip through his messed-up head. But please be warned, there is strong sex, blood and innards.
