Mehitobel Wilson has been publishing horror fiction since 1999. She is a Bram Stoker Award nominee, and many of her stories have been granted Honorable Mentions in the Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror series. If you can’t pronounce her name, call her “Bel.”
Bel’s been a dog groomer, an industrial painter, a runway model, a belt worker in a factory, a cigarette girl at a movie theater, an audio/visual technician, a Latin tutor, and a waitress, among other things. She’s lived in the backwoods and on the streets. Now she lives (in a house) in the Deep South, prefers Lone Star beer and Marlboros, and inflicts Hong Kong rap music on whomever comes in proximity. She’d write more fiction if her hands were less sore from bouts of Tekken 4.
The crumbling Blue Alice has been gathering ghosts for over a hundred years. Once a grand mansion, it was converted to a rooming house in the 1920s. Tenants throughout the century since have suffered violent poltergeist attacks. Mollie must use magic, ingenuity, and intuition to travel back in time to the source of each haunting, avert their circumstances, and change history.
This is the first collection of beautifully dark fiction from one of the most promising new writers in modern horror. This book features Bel's brilliant 'The Mannerly Man" from THE DARKER SIDE anthology edited by John Pelan as well as stories from numerous other anthologies and magazine appearances. Also contains many never before published pieces and an intro from David J. Schow.
