Bestselling editor Rebecca Rowland (Unburied: A Collection of Queer Dark Fiction) and Dark Ink Books (Savini, Unmasked: The True Life Story of the World's Most Prolific Cinematic Killer) present a unique anthology of monster, folk, paranormal, and psychological horror as glimpsed through the lens of the latchkey generation. In this assortment of spine-chilling tales, twenty-two voices shine a strobe light on the cultural demons that lurked in the background while they came of age in the heyday of Satanic panic and slasher flicks, milk carton missing and music television, video rentals and riot grrrls.
These Gen-X storytellers once stayed out unsupervised until the streetlights came on, and what they brought home with them will terrify you.

From steamy jungles and back waters to unexplored islands and mysterious woodlands, researchers investigate alien artifacts and mysterious creatures, while others probe interdimensional portals, oblivious to the dangers.
Some are motivated by the romance of discovery, others by the heady intoxication of greed, but all are doomed when their forays into the unknown world become terrifying tales of Ill-considered Expeditions!
All Helena really wants is a better life for her twelve year old son, Luke. To do that she needs to get him into a good school, which isn’t easy to do when you are a single mother and a Catholic in a near future United States where there is no more separation between Church and State.
States, even neighborhoods are divided along religious lines, and Helena faces discrimination everywhere she goes. Adam, a teenager from her congregation, convinces Helena to leave everything behind and take him and her son across the new American landscape to New Secular City, where they hope to find good schools, good jobs, and tolerance.
After facing many obstacles they will finally reach their destination, but it may not be what any of them expected.

Why can't anything be simple?
Like many college sophomores, Mike doesn’t have a clear direction in life. When he inherits an old house from a mysterious family friend, he drops out of school to check out his new property. He gets more than he bargained for when he falls through a portal in the attic and lands in a frightening, medieval fantasy land where myth, folklore and reality are one. The only way home lies with the missing Gatekeeper and his Key. Mike’s new companions, Ultor, Elric and Virgil, need the Gatekeeper’s help to save their kingdom from Histerland and its evil High Necromancer. Their quest puts Mike in the middle of an age-old conflict between warring kingdoms and rival wizards. As the Necromancer stalks the Key Seekers across this world of gods and monsters, Mike discovers secrets about his past and the key to his future.
