Descend into a world of depravity and glimpse into the most bizarre tales imaginable, showcasing Keller as a master of psychological horror.
Who would kidnap thirty-three pathetic microcephalons—and for what perverse goal?
Is the ancient axe truly cursed? Will its new owner be forced to re-enact a tragic past?
What strange magic allows the beautiful showgirl to maintain her youth and beauty for decades for a lustful audience?
