WHAT IS YOUR STATE OF HORROR? <br> <br>Come take a unique tour of the state of Illinois. Visit a little known pizza place where the deep-dish pizza is to die for. Spend the night in a haunted house or explore an abandoned resort town. What happens when you disturb the sanctity of an ancient deity? Swim with us in a lake where fish are not the only creatures under the water’s surface. Ghosts, mobsters, and zombies all provide thrills as we explore the Land of Lincoln. <br> <br>The number 13 is often viewed as an unlucky, even evil number. However , here it is only fitting we traverse the horrors of Illinois through 13 tales to make the heart beat just a little faster. Join us if you dare. <br> <br>Stories by: <br>Stuart Conover, Eric I. Dean, DJ Tyrer, Della West, Claire C. Riley, Herika R. Raymer, Frank J. Edler, Julianne Snow, A.

I couldn't wait to read this anthology and it did not disappoint! This is an entertaining and terrifying collection. I am especially impressed with new author Eric I. Dean's "My Porcelain Monster." Who knew a simple toilet could be so sinister! I am anxious to read more from him and from all the authors in this collection! Brilliant! 

State of Horror is a unique anthology in that it collects 13 horror stories for each of the 50 states. Each state gets a book dedicated just to its own legends, folktales, hauntings, and general spookiness. The actual state plays a role, or is a character in the stories. The settings of the State of Horror stories are recognizable even to locals. All of the State of Horror authors take care to not only incorporate the state into their stories, but to create true horror stories to thrill readers of the horror genre.

Many of the State of Horror authors write an original tale of horror they have dreamt up and incorporated into a state. Other authors take local lore or a famous haunt and put their own creative spin on the story. Some authors even incorporate some history into their story and twist it until it terrifies even the hardiest horror lover.About State of Horror Anthology Series
