Men and Monsters (Five Stories)

Last year for Halloween, I presented three spooky stories for your entertainment. At the time, I was concepting multiple projects, but I was also in the process of finishing the first draft of one.

It involves werewolves and vampires and invisible men, and while I’m still in the rewriting stages, I thought I might attempt to expand their characters a bit. I quickly plotted out five short stories that would expand on either their character or backstory, and spent a bit of time reading 19th century and early 20th century fiction to get a feel for the style, tropes, and images I wanted to emulate. So for the month of October, there will be five stories, each centered around a different type of monster.
