Short stories from a sick and twisted mind. These are five good little stories, written very well and very imaginatively.
Story themes: life after death, haunting, magic, mutation, myth, zombies, identity theft
This is actually volume 3. I don't know why it is coming up as Just "The books of blood".
Great read as were the other two :)
