About this project
Edited by Scott O. Brown and Rachel Deering, Monstrology is 112 pages of pure terror. The monsters are the driving theme of every story. This collection isn't about twist endings--though we have some--nor is it about a good scare or gore--we have those, too. These stories mix and match monsters in new milieus that bring out new and interesting twists on the monsters and their victims.
This awesome collection includes the following stories:
Troll Behavior by Andrew Foley & G. Gerald Garcia in which Andrew was told to write a story involving trolls in a junkyard, and after he thought at great length about trolls and considered junkyards briefly, he wrote a story that involved the both of them.
The Abomination Denomination by Scott O. Brown & Amin Amat, where a vacationing family stops by an old, rural church on Sunday morning for a very interesting service.
In White Widow by Charles Webb & Andres Esparza, a young woman must battle the supernatural force at the heart of a haunted house which seems able to bend, twist, and recreate reality around her.
What Fools These Mortals Be by Joey Esposito, Erik Norris & JC Grande. All you need to know is that it is about a bridge and a satyr.
Yolk by Erica J. Heflin & Elias Martins, is a story of a young woman's journey for acceptance, guided by her grandmother's goblin-infested tales of the Old World.
Darkest Corners by Thacher E. Cleveland & Fernando Can, where a teenager runs away to the tunnels under Las Vegas where he finds himself facing a terror that's spewed forth from the depths of the earth looking to consume everything in its path.
The View of Mumbichi Valley by Walt Mancing & Horacio Lalia, features a harpy and an ancient tree, and is inspired by the old Creepy and Tales from the Crypt comics that scared the Hell out of Walt as a kid.
In Children of Russia by Ryan Ferrier & Hugo Petrus, a dying man recounts his life of poor choices, all stemming from an unspeakable horror at the orphanage in which he grew up.
With cover art by Steve Ellis, whose work has been seen at DC, Marvel, Wizards of the Coast, and more!

Risks and challenges
Since this anthology is practically done, risks are negligable. Most of the stories are fully completed. Those that aren't, are very close, needing some lettering and colors. We just need to raise funds to handle the logistics of printing and shipping to bring it to completion.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
