Author(s): Anthony Horowitz
The No. 1 bestselling creator of 'Alex Rider' gives horror a whole new look in this mischievous collection of macabre tales, presented in an exciting new, larger format. Stories of ultimate revenge, from freshly sold human meat and uncontrollable robots, to life-sucking MP3 players and reality TV where death is the penalty - all told with dark humour and gruesome relish, and made even more flendish by retro illustrations, chilling facts and a puckish message from the author. This is Anthony Horowitz at his most wicked. Old-fashioned cover look that belies the gruesome interior: makes for a great marketing story. This is a deliciously macabre collection of horror stories told with retro illustrations and lashings of gruesome relish.
