Lucy Snyder is known for short fiction that expands tropes and puts a new spin on old genres. In these twelve stories you will find influences from classic horror figures like H.P. Lovecraft and Ambrose Bierce but you won’t find the same characters or plot devices. With the ability to write across many genres and a keen eye for injustice Snyder brings new voices to life amidst some very traditional trappings.
