Enter the woods… if you dare.

"My Lady in the War" by Whitney Zahar - Uncertainty and death are the two constants of the war and the woods.
"The Magpie" by M. Regan - The bird thinks her soul is very pretty, and he wants it for himself.

Not a bad place to raise a family, right?
Dig a little deeper, because all is not right where the bible belt buckles. In Black Buttons, Vol.3: A Family Affair, a kith and kin of creepy tales immerse you in blood ties that spellbind.
• “The Culling” brings siblings together to roost one last time around Mama. Birds of a feather…
• “Toujours Nicole” bakes a pastry tale of passion lost.
• “Bald Island, Goat Island” shares the duality of life and death, of reality and memory, of childhood horror and lakeside property.
• “Night at the Huggy Bear” takes us on a honeymoon trip where two young newlyweds discover how love never leaves. Ever.
• “The Chosen Ones” preps a family for the apocalypse, by going on a Branson, MO Vacation.
• “Getting the Last Word” exposes how bad mom and dad really get along.
• “Juniper Gesso” tries to fix a dying marriage. Some things can’t be whitewashed. Or can they?
• “Limbo Freezes Over” proves that in the place between heaven and hell, there’s a job that must be done.
• “Learning to Cook” cooks up a young man’s ascent from his father’s disappointment. Problem is, just desserts aren’t always sweet.
• “Mind Over Matter” reminds us that Alzheimer’s can make loved ones forget important days. Terribly, horribly important days.
• “A Life Connected” discovers sisterhood and motherhood don’t hunger for the same ends.
• “Front Porch Optimist” finds the silver lining in an almost-drowning.
• “The Troll Wrestler” grapples with the fraternity of the ring, and fights those who troll chosen brethren.
• “Odds & Ends” shows how Grandpa’s love can fix everything but age and death. Not that he won’t try.
It’s horror, relatively speaking. Welcome to the family.
When the ties that bind Sammy to his crew seem unbreakable, he puts his trust in the one person he knows has his back, but he soon finds out that blood isn't always thicker than water.
"The quiet horror of Mary Rajotte’s “Like Flies to Honey” calls to mind the best of Shirley Jackson. She sets the story at an annual gathering in a seemingly bucolic town, hypnotizing the reader with the normalcy of it all before striking a terrifying chord in the story’s final pages. The writing is crisp, well-paced, and quite addictive, and the characters painfully believable. Well done!" - Aaron Polson, author of The House Eaters and We Are The Monsters
"'Like Flies to Honey,' available in issue #8 of Shroud Magazine, provides a slow burn of paranoia and suspense. Rajotte has a way with description that had me marveling at the beauty of the vile. She spins the two together like fine silk until the reader has no recourse but to marvel that such a disgusting thing could be so wonderful." - Anthony J. Rapino, author of Soundtrack to the End of the World
But when jealousy arises, and the tradition hundreds of years old threatens to divide the family for good, Trina discovers that she is engaged to a man with secrets she isn't sure she can live with.
Their time has come!
Featuring 29 terrifying tales of the undead, The Scroll of Anubis takes you to places you could never imagine. From the depths of Egypt to the streets of the suburbs, enter a world where the dead have risen, where terror walks the Earth.
