Baby Soft Dreams. Oh yes to be young again, oh yeah right. Jackie’s got an old lady’s face, body, and bad attitude. Then she gets a new client and an even bigger problem.
The Imp. This one is personal. Every short story horror book needs a monster, this one is mine… for real.

Spirits of Hartshorn. Pam has a few regrets in her life and too much mind-altering chemicals up her nose from the Helan-Glenn Ammonia Factory. The mixture is combustible.

The Car. Mike’s a good old guy mechanic until he buys the she-demon who’s looking for revenge.
The Empress of Eberhard. This medieval tale was inspired by a portrait of the 17th-century pig-faced Dutch woman Tannakin Skinker (image in the book and all over the web). It’s tasty.
