What the Monsters Are Thinking

The Monster's Corner book coverHannibal Lecter. Dexter Morgan. We have a fascination with what motivates monstrous characters, sometimes even taking it so far as to root for them. If this is true for you, be sure to visit The Monster’s Corner, a collection of “stories through inhuman eyes,” edited by Christopher Golden. Top horror and dark fantasy authors pen original tales from the point of view of frightening creatures, and, after all, we can’t really judge until we’ve walked in their shoes, right? Standouts include the grisly “Less of a Girl” by Chelsea Cain, the clever “Jesus and Satan Go Jogging in the Desert” by Simon R. Green, and Kelley Armstrong’s “Rakshasi,” elegant in both tone and perspective. Satisfy your appetite for creepy with any one of these disturbing stories.
