Summary

Why won't you look in the mirror at midnight? What are you afraid of? Your own face? Or the thought that you might see something more than your own face, something dark and terrible and strange... 
Award-winning horror writer Graham Masterton brings you a collection of fourteen stories as fourteen mirrors reflecting unimaginable secrets and unknown cruelties.  
 
Look closely, and see the tempting face of the girl who refuses to die. Look closer still, and see the greed-filled face of the man who craves the most terrible meal of all, and the ashen-grey faces of the men who returned home long after they were buried and, if you dare, the heart-stopping face of the guardian of the woods.

    Waverly Estate is a sentinel that looks down from abrupt roof lines above The Hudson River. More than one hundred years after The Revolutionary War, its presence continues to whisper of battles won and lost; of death and vacuous halls and hearts, and of treacherous deeds committed. Its residents are not troubled by the dead alone. Far more ghastly are the living.
     
    It is the year 1858 and Garson, the pitiless master of Waverly, lies dying. A magnificent dome above him boasts paintings of Rene Bonhomme, a French artist who covets more than Garson's wicked wife, Hannah. Death hides in the beauty of both his wife and art, and trickery awaits his last breath. Ancestors compose a chain of errors when they fail to consider Amelia, the long dead daughter of butler James. When crossed, she unleashes ghastly reminders that she is ever present.
     
    Waverly Estate: Ghost Dance is a tale of hope and love that endures beyond mortal existence. It challenges belief in the ever after and explores spaces that bridge life and death.

    From the author of the bestselling A Reliable Wife comes a dramatic, passionate tale of a glamorous Southern debutante who marries for money and ultimately suffers for love—a southern gothic as written by Dominick Dunne. 
    It begins with a house and ends in ashes . . . 
    Diana Cooke was "born with the century" and came of age just after World War I. The daughter of Virginia gentry, she knew early that her parents had only one asset, besides her famous beauty: their stately house, Saratoga, the largest in the commonwealth, which has hosted the crème of society and Hollywood royalty. Though they are land-rich, the Cookes do not have the means to sustain the estate. Without a wealthy husband, Diana will lose the mansion that has been the heart and soul of her family for five generations. 
    The mysterious Captain Copperton is an outsider with no bloodline but plenty of cash. Seeing the ravishing nineteen-year-old Diana for the first time, he’s determined to have her. Diana knows that marrying him would make the Cookes solvent and ensure that Saratoga will always be theirs. Yet Copperton is cruel as well as vulgar; while she admires his money, she cannot abide him. Carrying the weight of Saratoga and generations of Cookes on her shoulders, she ultimately succumbs to duty, sacrificing everything, including love. 
    Luckily for Diana, fate intervenes. Her union with Copperton is brief and gives her a son she adores. But when her handsome, charming Ashton, now grown, returns to Saratoga with his college roommate, the real scandal and tragedy begins. 
    Reveling in the secrets, mores, and society of twentieth-century genteel Southern life, The Dying of the Light is a romance, a melodrama, and a cautionary tale told with the grandeur and sweep of an epic Hollywood classic.

    Rabid is to humans what King's Cujo was to dogs...
     
    Nestled among shady pines, a pair of brothers splash in a babbling brook, their faces lit up with childlike glee. Around them, squirrels frolic in trees, and rabbits nibble on grass. Birds sing a symphony of harmony.
     
    Shortly after their father’s death, Adam and his 14-year-old brother embark on a camping trip. Because their father was an abusive alcoholic, they both struggle with a myriad of sentiments—sadness that he’s gone, relief that the abuse is over, sorrow that they’ll never experience fatherly love or pride. Surely therapeutic nature can remedy their afflictions.
     
    Precipitously, horror replaces their tranquil panorama. Thrashing wildly, Adam spews obscenities, and foam bubbles from his lips. In a paradox of iniquity, brothers become enemies, as their inner demons spring to life.

    After tracking down the missing sister of her former partner Audrey, and helping to put an end to a monstrous being's reign of terror, one would think they'd find Prudence Osgood riding high. Instead, they couldn't find her at all. 
    A year and change after the events of Osgood as Gone, our titular hero has returned. Osgood is confused, exhausted, and dragging along more quirks than she ever remembers having. Her friends Zack and Audrey, the makeshift Spectral Inspector crew in her absence, don't quickly believe that things are back to normal, but have to admit that no one is quite as grumpy and belligerent as "their Osgood." 
    Unfortunately for all involved, something has hitched a ride back from the space between worlds, and not even Osgood can guess what its plans are. She will need to stand with her friends against a monstrous emergent evil, and it will take everything the Spectral Inspectors have to stop what's coming once the events are set in motion.  
    Can they keep their sanity, and stay alive? Find out in Osgood Riddance.

    Lusus Naturae – Latin for freak of nature.  
    It's probably the only name that made sense for a curiosity like me, who was born with the uncanny ability to read thoughts even quicker than tarot cards the townies pay me to decipher. I've carried my family's circus legacy since the day I came out of my momma's triangular womb and heard her think of what a mistake she'd made in bringing another anomaly into a cruel world. 
    From that very day, I was determined to set the record straight. We freaks, you see, are the true marvels of the world. Superheroes in our own ways, I'm determined to use the circus to change hearts and minds about the peculiar attributes and talents of my chosen family. I just didn't know it would be so hard. 
    From a husband known as Lizard Man with scaly skin rendering him virtually unemployable to the rabid Dog Boy, who has taken the idea of running away from his past to the circus to a whole new level, things are complicated. Here, at Circus Lusus Naturae, where the show goes on no matter what our resident sociopath snake charmer says, personalities and agendas are getting harder and harder to manage. It's no wonder I can't get pregnant. 
    On the hard days—where Skeleton Man refuses to ride a miniature pony or the twins won't stop whining about being double-mint conjoined—I try to remind myself that realities are only illusions. And, as the troupe's surrogate puppet master, I do have some level of control. Today, I'll work on getting Dog Boy out of here so we don't all end up on felony charges. First, I should probably check on the fried pickles. The show goes on and magic, like Momma always said, is actually a verb.
