Jonathan Forrest presents a collection of twelve stories that reveal the darkest secrets and explore the depths of horror.
In the novella "Ronin Boy" a boy without name wielding a katana is sentenced to a place of torture and torment beyond imagination. He must now navigate his way through a world of madness, an ever-changing nightmare landscape where the laws of reality no longer exist.
In "Secret Spitters Society" three eleven-year-old friends sneak into a grandmother's wine cellar and invent a drinking game. Each boy tells a secret and takes a sip of wine. If the secret is false, the teller spits out the wine; if the secret is true, the boy swallows. What other secrets reside in the cellar?
A hellish monstrosity lurks on the far side of a tall fence; a warped madness compels a child to venture deep into a sandstorm; and unspeakable terrors transpire within a cornfield as Forrest weaves random slices of life into an emotional presentation that lures the mind's eye into a fascinating and complex darkness where "Vile Little Things" await.
