(Includes the short story "Black Tea", an Honorable Mention in Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year 2013)
In an apparently abandoned house, time and space work in a peculiar way. Those inside can’t remember why they are there and memories of the time before are beginning to fade. That strange old lady, can she help them or is she a threat? A small sheet of paper in their pocket reminding them who they are and where the danger comes from may be their only hope, but can they use it to escape the house or will they die in the attempt?
A special wine allows dreams to come true. But what happens when a loser like William Fiorucci - divorced, broke, and little more than a drunken hack – gets a sip of it?
Giuseppe is only eleven but he’s a smart kid. He knows that he can avoid the Janara if he just remains still and makes no noise. If he can manage that, she won’t find him hiding in his bed. There are rules she must follow after all. But can he use those rules against her? Can he free himself from the witch’s curse by killing the witch herself?
Three short stories, three dark visions of Milan and Italy from Samuel Marolla, the Master of Italian Horror.
