But there is adventure and you will find yourself whispering ‘just one more.’ ”

Back Cover Copy

What horrors lurk among the stars?

If you dare venture into space, you will find planets where the rain will dissolve the flesh from your skeleton in a matter of minutes.  There are undead stellar corpses that warp the very fabric of reality.  There are bursts of radiation that will cook you alive within the walls of your spaceship.

And those are just the terrors we expect to face when we leave Earth.

In this volume you’ll find seventeen tales guaranteed to send a shiver down your spine.  You’ll meet cold and dispassionate aliens—some so large they’ll swallow your starship whole, others so small they’ll turn your blood to dust.  The prospect of encountering undead creatures such as vampires and zombies on Earth is frightening enough.  Imagine meeting them while trapped during an interstellar flight.  You’ll join men and women as they dare to explore haunted spaceships.  In the end, you may discover that the most frightening creatures we’ll encounter among the stars are humans themselves.

We invite you to peer into the darkest reaches of space with Ernest and Emily Hogan, Sarah A. Hoyt, Dayton Ward, Danielle Ackley-McPhail and a dozen more new and veteran writers.
