Terror on the ToiletTerror on the Toilet: Horror and Humor Whilst About Your Business

Have you ever wondered what lurks in the deep, dark, abyss?

No, we aren’t talking about your toilet (hopefully)! We’re talking about the human soul, the deepest part of the pit of hell, or the dead eyes of the local zombie. We’re talking about the face looking back at you in the mirror, the seductive appeal of secret knowledge, and pleasure at any cost–even your life, or the lives of others.

In this wicked collection of short stories that veer wildly between satire and straight-up horror, a motley crew of authors with Bard and Book Publishing threaten to expose humanity’s darkest corners. This one pokes fun at the gratuitous sensuality of modern society; that one reminds us that death is always near; another that zombies may just be a literary device that allows us to speak frankly about the human condition. And so it goes, in this collection of short stories designed with the ‘indisposed’ reader in mind.
