Secret Things by Stacey Longo

It’s a cool thing when a writer you think you know can surprise you. It’s a cooler thing when a writer who’s also a friend blindsides you with the sheer originality of their work. This is the case with Secret Things: 12 Tales to Terrify, a collection of short stories by my friend and terror […]
