When a stranger shows up in Bleakliv’s Strive and promises to free the town from the mysterious killer ‘Tribe’, the people are skeptical. Who even knows if Tribe is man, monster or simply a myth? In a world where children play games guessing what thing will be the most horrifying to be caught by, what hope can any of them have for respite? Keep no room for monsters, but remember, someone must be the hero.
The sequel to The First Shred, The Second Shred takes us from the desperate swamps and manor house to the town of Bleakliv’s Strive, a community terrorized by supernatural killers. The stories told follow the same shattered unstuck formula as it’s predecessor, but whereas the first novella focused on the human drama, The Second Shred welcomes us to huddle in the corner with the masses of victims who have simply given up, as we attempt to discover the monsters in each and everyone of us.
Praise for The Second Shred
DLW never fails to grab me by the balls and drag me kicking and screaming through her writing… I give my full recommendation for The Second Shred, and if you haven’t read The First Shred yet, I absolutely recommend that you do. –Reed Alexander Horror Reviews
