Spooky and stylish graphic design by Matt Cresswell.
The first piece is “Wild Eyes”, a tale of backpacking in Ireland and an encounter with a shape-shifter, which appeared in Chase The Moon - The Magazine of Misfit Stories. The second, “Burial Ground”, is a ghost tale about a haunted Akwesasne family, which appeared in the October 2014 Glitterwolf: Halloween. The final piece is “Drawing Out”, a tale set on Halloween night that features a Jehovah's Witness, a nine-year-old kid who can draw monsters like nobody's business, and a mysterious woman named Esmeralda. “Drawing Out” appeared in issue 18 of Icarus. These stories are not for the faint of heart, kiddies!
I send a heartfelt thanks to Steve Berman of Lethe Press for making "Drawing Out" possible and to Matt Cresswell, graphic designer extraordinaire.
