A married couple with an undead houseguest. A shape-shifting robot with a photographic memory. A gourmand mob boss with a taste for the unusual.
Welcome to the world of Silent Screams.
Containing twenty-six stories from a variety of fresh voices and industry veterans, Silent Screams is an anthology of dark speculative fiction focused on drawing awareness to the plight of those who are unable to speak for themselves. Simultaneously humane and horrific, each included tale presents a vision of the macabre animated by a beating heart of compassion.
The world’s voiceless victims cry out. If you listen closely enough, you just might hear them.
