A teenager digging his way through a deep crust of waste and bone to win his freedom.

A man whose work for the Khmer Rouge returns to haunt him.

A son who has an intensely strange relationship with his mother.

A student with a bizarre homework assignment.

A woman who has a macabre way to deal with bill collectors.


These stories and more will have you up late into the night, glancing over your shoulder and flinching at the slightest of noises.

“Joel Arnold is the real deal. He elicits a subtle element of terror and justice through his writing, delivered without a heavy hand. His exceptional imagery effects readers in a way that leaves them chilled and disturbed; causing the kind of behavior that will leave friends asking ‘what’s bothering you,’ for days afterwards.”

D.L. Russell, editor of Strange, Weird & Wonderful Magazine

“Author Arnold has a deft touch with horror that will leave a chill in your spine, but without the violence and gore of much modern horror. The stories remind me of Ray Bradbury at his darkest with their ability to play on the difference between what we know might happen and what we want to happen. These are complex tales with layers below the surface enjoyment of a story well written.”
