Eigentlich wollen Luke und seine Freunde bei einem Trekkingausflug durch die schwedische Wildnis nur den Problemen des Alltags entfliehen und an alte Zeiten anknüpfen. Doch als sie sich in den Wäldern verirren, entwickelt sich der harmlose Männerausflug zum Horrortrip: Ausgeweidete Tierkadaver und eine mysteriöse Ruine mitten im Wald jagen den vier Wanderern bereits erste Schauer über den Rücken, und schon bald bringt die nervliche Anspannung die dunkelsten Seiten in den Freunden hervor. Dabei hat der eigentliche Alptraum noch gar nicht begonnen ...

The most blasphemous of tomes sit upon a dusty shelf in the Library of the Damned. 'A dozen bone-chilling tales by modern masters' The Independent And amongst those titles - that should never be named - there is one volume that is the most terrible, the most hideous of them all. That book is the Lexicon of Fear. But, long ago, some of its pages were ripped from the binding and spirited away by a lowly student of the ancient science of Horrorology, who was determined the secrets contained therein would one day be shared with the world. And now that day has come. These are the words that comprise the very language of horror itself, and the tales they tell are not for the fainthearted. But be warned: once you have read them, there is no turning back. Soon, you too will know the true meanings of fear . . . Featuring stories from Clive Barker, Robert Shearman, Michael Marshall Smith, Pat Cadigan, Mark Samuels, Joanne Harris, Muriel Gray, Kim Newman, Ramsey Campbell, Reggie Oliver, Angela Slatter and Lisa Tuttle.

Two hundred years ago two brothers, Jacob and Wilhelm, collected together a large selection of folk and fairy tales and published them as Kinder- und Hausmärchen (Children's and Household Tales). So successful was the first collection of 88 stories that they kept adding more to subsequent editions. Since then, the tales of the Brothers Grimm have been translated into upwards of a hundred different languages and are known and loved throughout the world. Now award-winning editor Stephen Jones has tasked some of the brightest and best horror writers in Britain, America and Europe with reinterpreting some of the traditional Hausmärchen, putting a decidedly darker spin on the classic stories.

ABOUT THE BOOK: There are some people I'd like you to meet. Some of them are really bad people. Some of them are just like you. Whoever they are, their lives just got weird. Some of them will live to tell you about it; most of them will not, and one or two of them will tell you their stories from some very strange places indeed. So come inside. Come inside and say hello. -- D. Elaine Calderin is an exciting new voice in the world of science fiction. With unexpected twists and turns in her plots and characters with unusually dark psychological profiles, she most assuredly grabs and holds the reader's attention. -Robert Hart Baker, symphony conductor, YSO, HSO, STL Philharmonic, Asheville Lyric Opera Company. --It has been my pleasure to be acquainted with Elaine Calderin's writing since she was a high school student. Her rare gift for creating clear images in her poetry and prose make her writing stand out from the pack. Where most writers settle for merely telling what they mean, Calderin generates a rich field of images that shows us what is. In the context of storytelling, these abilities allow her to create convincing realities that stimulate the mind and the imagination. Highly recommended! -Robert Yutzy, former managing editor of the Akron Buchtelite, teacher About The Author: American writer, essayist and Asperger's Syndrome/High Functioning autistic, D. Elaine Calderin grew up in North Carolina, graduating from McDowell High School in Marion, furthering her education at McDowell Tech, Asheville-Buncombe Tech and Duke University. Of Cuban/Hispanic lineage, she showed an early interest in American history, debating, psychology and astronomy. She has written newspaper articles for the McDowell News. Ms. Calderin is currently active as a contributing magazine writer to The Paradox Anthropomorphs Occasionally and The Existential Anthropomorphs Occasionally, where she serves as writer and chief editor. Her varied genre fiction and other essays can be found at New Media sites online including Deviant Art www.deviantart.com, England-based Literary website, LitMuse www.litmuse.com, Expand-Mind.com www.expand-mind.com and the Aspergers/High Functioning Autistics forum, Wrong Planet.Net www.wrongplanet.net.
