Days of Utter Dread - The Red Butcher and Other Stories: The must-read short story collection from the master of horror by Graham Masterton, by Dawn G Harris

A collection of highly disturbing and deeply original short stories from the master of horror Graham Masterton and rising star Dawn G Harris.

A belt adorned with strange markings has the power to strangle anyone who attacks its owner. A man whose wife has been placed into a portrait at the Tate decides to join her on the other side. A woman burns and mutilates herself to look like her surviving friend in the wake of a horrible car accident.

In these and other unsettling tales, master of horror Graham Masterton and his protegee Dawn G Harris explore the dark side of human nature – from the graphic and violent to the spine-tingling and supernatural.
