More of Derek's books…
“The sun is up now, revealing all of us for what we really are.
And it's fucking blinding.”
Derek Milman, Scream All Night

“The spiders will always hatch out of the flowers. But now I like to think about the moments before, when they're just flowers, blooming, and they can be pinched closed, so all that prettiness last a little longer before the inevitable horror comes.”
Derek Milman, Scream All Night

“This is a house full of misfits, everyone unmoored from the world outside these gates. They don’t belong out there.

After all, it takes true misfits to make believable monsters.”
Derek Milman, Scream All Night
