FRESH BLOOD: NEW CANADIAN GOTHIC FICTION.


202 pp, 8 1/2" H. "(A) collection written by some of the best writers in Canada. These stories tap into the deep fears in us all.

The stories in this anthology may cause sleepless nights, bad dreams and general unease. You've been warned. Welcome to the Nightmare."
