House   Writers write because they want other people to know what they have discovered on their journeys. What they discover might be beautiful beyond compre­hension, or terrifying beyond our most terrible nightmares.

  The Scarlet Petal: Beauty has no choice but to go with the Beast after a card game goes horribly wrong. She will find out a terrible truth about the castle to which she has come—a secret so monstrous that those who try to tell it vanish.

  The Devil’s Pit: Three young explorers set out into the Amazon rainforest to make names for themselves; but the world will remember the horrors of the valley they journey to, and the monster that lives there—a monster the modern world long thought dead…

  A Victorian Drama: Marriage is never easy, especially when there are affairs, scandal, and a night of passion at a friend’s ball into the bargain. But who knew that such a lovely night would erupt into a night of horror?

  Melt not in weeping while she lies sleeping: A forest of thorn has long guarded a secret, and those who enter never return to tell the tale. But a young man travelling in winter might have bitten off more than he can chew when he discovers a cottage at the centre of the forest and its welcoming occupants.
