This is a book about monsters.

Monsters who love us. Monsters who hate us. The monsters we nurture, and the monsters we become. They may be imperceptibly small or unimaginably vast,completely devoid of thought or filled with incomprehensible rage and hunger, but regardless of scale or motivation, they cannot be ignored.

Come Into The Light, My Darlings by C. Scott Davis

My Review: So, I read a lot of fucked up stories as a kid (what can I say — Goosebumps was my favorite thing on Earth when I was 7, and the collection of horror stories just branched off from there) and this reminded me exactly of something I would find in one of my old books of short horror stories. And I *loved* it. It was short, but the horrific shock factor was spot on, as well as the... morbid fascination. This story had the perfect mixture

If I could give this book 10 stars I would in a second.

I have never read such a compelling series of works in my life and I have read A LOT of literature. This is like Black Mirror before Black Mirror was Black Mirror...and better!

The characters in every tale are vivid, realistic, and have such a depth to them no matter how short the stories within this books covers are. The world building in these stories Just amazing. How is this book not freaking worldwide famous?!?!?!
