A word from Devlin DeGuise:

This deliciously dark collection is an under-appreciated gem. The authors have crammed the drawers of this cabinet with tales that can be read in a single sitting. This gives readers little time to escape once the horror's begun.

About The Cabinet of Curiosities:

Did Alvin Schwartz's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark leave you wanting more?

Then this anthology is your next must-read!

Step into a world shrouded in mystery with this mesmerizing collection of chilling tales that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Penned by the gifted quartet of Stefan Bachmann, Katherine Catmull, Claire LeGrand, and Emma Trevayne, each page is a labyrinth of dread and wonder, designed to captivate, thrill, and unnerve in equal measure.
