Horror is everywhere… It’s waiting behind a closed door, sitting in an ordinary chair, or following you on a country walk. Perhaps it’s washed up on a tranquil beach, hanging at a local skate park, recorded on an MP3 player hard drive, or even embedded somewhere deep within the design of something as simple and innocuous as a supermarket barcode. Horror is everywhere, in the shadows and in the light. It takes on every shape, comes in every conceivable size. But most of all it’s right where you live.
“WHERE YOU LIVE is a horror collection that stirs emotions and provokes thought. These aren't simple riffs on overused horror motifs, rather they are tales examining this complex, confusing, often disturbing thing called "the human experience." McMahon's tight, precise prose cuts to the bone with surgical precision, laying out the common fears that plague all of us. Not to harp on the title overmuch, but these horrors don't live in dank caves or moldering, Gothic castles or moonlight cemeteries. These horrors hit close to home, sometimes too close. They hit us where we live." - Kevin Lucia, author of Things Slip Through
