Stories for Late at Night

Authored by Adrian Ludens

"This is the kind of book Hitchcock's face used to appear on. When Bedbugs Bite is the certified antidote for stories in which it takes characters 12,003 words to say, 'Hello.' Think of the original Captain Zinger, Fredric Brown, only nastier, much, much ... I mean, really nasty!"
-MORT CASTLE, Multiple Bram Stoker Award(r) winner, as editor (With Sam Weller) of Shadow Show: Stories in Celebration of Ray Bradbury) and as author of New Moon on the Water.

"Every story in Adrian Ludens' When Bedbugs Bite is an itch under the skin you'll scratch to get at, but not without leaving a few scars."
-RENA MASON, Bram Stoker Award(r) winning author of The Evolutionist, and East End Girls.

Nineteen tales of horror, mystery, dark fantasy, and supernatural suspense.
The mysterious allies of a Civil War soldier demand a gruesome form of payment in return for their services; a 1930's film actress takes her role as the Angel of Death to extremes; and a man in search of the legendary Mothman makes an astonishing and deadly discovery.
The end of the world begins with a surprise resurrection in a seedy carnival; a small-town funeral may provide the opportunity to dispose of an extra corpse; and a shape-shifting serial killer flees a vengeful witch across the Mexican desert.
These stories and twelve more are included in the pages of this collection by the author of Bedtime Stories for Carrion Beetles.
