What would you do if your partner were lying dead at the foot of your cellar?
Imagine if Stephen King and H.P. Lovecraft collaborated to create two chilling stories featuring murdered husbands and a nail-biting sprint towards freedom.
Meet Something in the Cellar - a collection of two dark short stories from Ryan Casey. The title story follows a mother, Sandra, who is hiding a rather large secret in her cellar in the form of her murdered husband. Struggling to do right by her child, Sandra tries to convince herself to face up to her fears. Does she have the courage to tackle the situation, and deal with the body once and for all?
The bonus story - The Runaway - follows a mysterious character as they escape the depths of a dark, industrial tunnel. Who is the unnamed ‘He’ that the protagonist is obsessed with, and just what exactly are they running from? Questions will be answered, and new ones will form, as the story hurtles to a shocking conclusion.

NOTE: Contains UK-English spellings.
