by Valeri StanoevichIt’s a collection of narrative short and flash tales. The short stories take place at different times (past, present, future) with different fantasy levels – from stories that are nearly real to phantasmagorias and New Gothic.

My idea is that all the horror is not outside of us but inside our mind and it is creeping from there.
