This book is an amazing collection of short stories with all sorts of supernatural creatures.
Cthulhu's Daughter is about Lulu and she has an obsession with the sea... is it madness or are there really voices calling to her...
Flesh and Circuits is my favorite story in this collection! It is set somewhere in a future where there are humanoid, sentient robots who are servants. Henrietta is an older model who might be destroyed in the near future... but her life changes when she starts her new job as a nanny for 7-year-old Andy.
The Two Mothers, Elise is a vampire who has but one dream... to have a child.
Fleeing... this story is about an unnamed soldier in a war who encounters werewolves.
Amunet is about an archaeologist who becomes obsessed with the mummy of a mysterious Egyptian Queen. Mathilda, his wife, and Bessie, his daughter, are scared of the darkness that the mummy brings in their home... and they should be...
Stop Requested is a story I already read in the back of The Living Dead Boy but this story is so cute I read it again. It's the start of the zombie apocalypse but what makes this story so special it that it is written in the POV of a guide dog, Bonnie, doing everything she can to get her blind master to safety.
The Key... Susan terrified of mirrors... not because of the image they reflect but she's scared of what lives behind the mirror!
