THE SHADOWS BEHIND
“Schoonover is a deft and accomplished writer … you do not have to be a horror fan to enjoy The Shadows Behind, as the writing is intelligent and the themes transcend genre. Add this book to your summer reading list.”
~ Elaine Pascale, Hellnotes
“Unsettling, well-written, strongly female-themed stories … all in all, potent stuff … with characters it’s easy to empathize with even as they’re doing terrible things.”
~ Christina Morgan, Horror Fiction Review
IN THE SHADOWS, MONSTERS LURK
In this disturbing collection, a hungry volcano demands more and a talking piranha predicts the future. A plastic Easter bunny taunts a struggling husband, ancient Egyptian jars tempt a former convict, and a man-eating tree mocks a bereft mother. Kudzu devours a sleeping town, and seagull bones whisper long-buried secrets.
These monsters are simply stand-ins for those we face every day: shape-shifting grief and overwhelming terror; soul-consuming love and all-possessing rage. We can rail against them or embrace them, but they are always there.
Waiting, and unconquerable.
