A pair of sisters become unsuspecting midwives for an otherworldy fetus. A pumpkinhead shaped pair of scissors will always kill those who cross them. An insecure girlfriend finds out her perfect boyfriend has his own hang-ups that are far more complicated than her cellulite. A sorority girl's cocaine fueled night goes horribly wrong set to the tune of some of the 1980s most popular songs.
Katie Cord explores the bizarre, curious, and absolutely terrifying world of femininity in these twelve short stories.
"A wild mix of body, supernatural, and atmospheric horror in both rural and urban settings. Some stories shock with terror, others are eerily enchanting, and some will make one laugh with gallows humor."

McCarthy will never be the same as Maxine struggles to unlock hidden truths while controlling her desire to devour everyone in her path.
“I really got sucked into this post-apocalyptic tale of a "perfect" community where everything is not quite as it seems. The author did a great job of building the world and pacing the story, teasing out the central mystery bit by bit. - Amy H., Amazon Review
