Connecticut: Small, but Scary

Twenty-one carefully curated tales set in Connecticut span the gamut from dark fairy tales to possessed objects, from D&D games that overlap into real life to aliens among us. Kids on bikes ride through these pages, confronting themselves, nature, and the general weirdness of Connecticut in the 80s and 90s.

Meet bullies, saviors, ghosts, weirdos, and sweethearts, dreamed into existence by some of the most innovative horror writers of Connecticut, and a chosen few from elsewhere.
