Monsters exist. Sure, they don't exactly advertise it, but they're out there. Some people know about them -- about the vampires, werewolves, boogiemen, and other creatures that walk the night -- but most remain wilfully (and blissfully) oblivious.
This is the world of aflameinthedark.net's very first horror anthology, Monsters!
We've gotten many submissions, and have selected from among the best of them 15 stories to keep you up at night, give you shivers of delight, and make you think.
In no particular order:
"Visitor Bob," a unique look at the bogeyman by Ellen C. Maze
"Divide and Conquer," wherein author Greg Mitchell looks at a different kind of vampire
"Running Late," a vampire tale by Pauline Creeden
"Closet Commentary," Teric Darken's tale of voices in the night
"Willing Blood," A vampire tale with a twist by Kat Heckenbach
"We Create Them," Thomas Smith's look at poverty through a lens of horror
"Invisible Intruder," by Stoney Setzer
"Twelfth Night," a Christmas story by Sean Philips
"Psychobabble, Toil, and Trouble," in which Stephen McQuiggan laments the loss of our monsters

"More Lives," a cat tale by Dana Bell
"Smoke," a good old-fashioned werewolf story -- or is it? -- by Jeremy Tyler
"Holy Angels," Delphine Boswell's story of a church's uninvited guest
