Introduction by Poppy Z. Brite
“He’s a shadow. He’s in the closet, or he’s under the bed. Maybe he’s in the mirror… or maybe he’s just in your head. He can hurt you; he’ll eat your heart and memories without you realizing. He is the boogeyman. You saw him once before, a long time ago. You glimpsed those claws, those teeth, in the sheath of darkness that came alive as it thickened around you. It’s familiar to you; this scent of things dead. Do you remember…?
In this collection of dark tales that will launch on Kickstarter on October 3rd, some of the best modern horror writers explore the boogeyman in his many different forms. Using imagination, nightmares, or a mix of the things made of reality and of dread, these eighteen tales are sure to remind you of your own boogeyman… alive or dead”.
Who is the boogeyman? A better question might be: Who isn’t he? asks Poppy Z. Brite in the introduction to this horror anthology dedicated to the scariest monster of them all — the one that lives where you live, that looks at you in the night, the one you think you left behind as a childhood fantasy.
Some of the best pens of contemporary horror asked themselves this question and gave us their answer: a terrifying one, of course. From well-known and loved stories by masters such as Stephen King (for the first time on Kickstarter) and Joe R. Lansdale to new haunting ones by well-known and beloved authors that are giving new life and direction to the horror genre, Enter Boogeyman will be a Collectors Edition wonderfully illustrated by Francesco Biagini, a hardcover for the horror enthusiast and the bibliophile alike.
