So she heads down to Miss Temmpy's shop and stumbles across a bottle of Luxury #35. But this intoxicating scent could change her into a sultry Bombshell who looks good enough to die for.
Cafe Macabre II is the second installment in the Cafe Macabre series. it is a collection of horror short stories and art by women edited by Leah McNaughton Lederman.
"13 Writers. 13 Artists. All women.
Women's horror is different.
When I asked women to write about what they fear, wht came out in this second book is a series of dark stories about isolation, grief, anxiety, loss, regret, dystopia, uncertain futures, unrequited love . . .
. . . Murder . . .
. . . and the occasional bloody massacre.
The themes may be universal, but the way these women write about them is unique, terrifying, and haunting."
