Dead Letters Anthology

We’ve all received the wrong mail at some point. Whether the previous resident’s package shows up on your doorstep or someone else’s mail is mixed in with yours, it’s a common occurrence. But what if the letter was unmarked or had no earthly reason to be in your possession?

That’s the hook that drives Dead Letters, the unknown intruding on everyday life in seemingly banal form. It’s an intriguing anthology where the fantasy elements mostly fly under the radar, trading the usual fantastic trappings for subtle and spooky touches. And the combination of mystery and horror elements that infuse these stories is terribly effective, sparking worry and paranoia in equal measure.

From murder mysteries and sinister revelations to magical deliveries and reminders of mistakes past, anything could be in those unexpected envelopes, and the authors in this collection take full advantage, mining all sorts of genres for chills and thrills. (Although many of these stories are wonderfully intimate, others take us to neighboring towns, and another launches a horrifying global apocalypse. More variety for the reader!)

Dead Letters is an anthology that does a lot with a little. Hopefully there’s more like this to come.
