Publisher's Summary

Behold the Void includes nine stories of terror that huddle in the dark space between cosmic horror and the modern weird, between old-school hard-edged horror of the 1980s and the stylistic prose of today's literary giants.
Revenge takes a monstrous form when a scorned lover acquires bizarre, telekinetic powers; a community swimming pool on a bright summer day becomes the setting for a ghastly nightmare of sacrifice and loss; a thief does bloody battle with a Yakuza for the soul of a horse god; a priest must solve the mystery of a century-old serial killer or risk the apocalypse; a newly-married couple discover that relationships-gone-bad can be poisonous, and deadly; a child is forced to make an ultimate choice between letting his parents die or living with the monsters they may become; and when a boy is trapped on a beach at low tide, he must face death in many forms - that of the rising water coming to consume him and the ghost of his dead mother who wants him back, reaching for him with dark, longing arms....

Fantastic book but I struggled with the narrator

Philip Fracassi is one of the most promising voices of the new wave of horror authors, up there with Laird Barron and John Langan, but I have to admit I struggled with the narrator. He's not bad, but there's a certain strange laziness to the narrator's voice that sounds both robotic and laggy at times, which I found detracted from the stories being read.

Overall though, well worth the time!

Cinematic storytelling with a hint of Stephen King

Great selection of stories with some original and unexpected ideas. Very cinematic in scope with emphasis on character despite the short story format. you can tell Fracassi is a screen writer. His work reminded me of King in places, especially the last story, but it is still unique enough to be its own thing.
