- Spirits Unwrapped
ed. by Daniel Braum
Within these pages, the authors (ranging from the bestselling and award winning to exciting new comers in the beginning of their careers) have thrown off the crusty, dank, and old trapping to bring us stories from around the world that transcend what we might think of “the typical” mummy story. Only one of these tales is set in Egypt. These wrapped spirits are not back from the dead to find lost loves or enact revenge and neither are they merely shambling, slow moving, physical threats. Prepare to be frightened by what Braum has unwrapped!
