Strange Tales of the Macabre: Ghosts is part of the “5×5” project: five acclaimed and gifted authors got together and exchanged stories to produce five themed anthologies. I chose ghosts for my theme.

These five tales call forth spirits to terrify, trick, and entrance. Bram Stoker Award-winning editor and author Eric J. Guignard shows us the ghostly side of King Arthur’s legend. Shirley Jackson Award nominee Kate Jonez offers up a tale of a gambler determined to break out of an especially vicious cycle. Multiple award-winner Rena Mason serves up that most chilling of haunted objects, the evil doll. Bram Stoker Award-winner John Palisano takes us to an abandoned Russian rocket factory for a disturbing and poignant story of a woman searching for her missing father. And my never-before-published story “The Tapestried Room” reworks a classic shocker for the twenty-first century. Also includes an introduction by me.
