Beating a dead horse is easy. It's dead. Hit it all you want, it won't hit back. Watch out for these stories, though. They bite and scratch and put you face to face with your darkest nightmares. Meet a reporter who knows too much about a sinister crime, a woman obsessed with a dead serial killer, a hitchhiker with a magical gift, a tooth-fairy who won't take no for an answer, a loner who gets his blow-up doll pregnant, and an abortion nurse who has a plan for those unwanted fetuses. From a basement turned into a torture chamber to a Nebraska highway you'd beg not to be stranded on, these twelve stories and five stage plays will lash out at your imagination and leave you whimpering for more.
