Curl up with nine terrifying stories by this Pagan author:

Bedtime Stories For the Faint of Heart

Author: Jeva Singh-Anand

Publisher: Lulu

Category: horror, short fiction, anthology   Level: All


In this collection of horror and dark fantasy stories, Jeva Singh-Anand conjures up a world filled with ghosts, monsters, and flesh eating ghouls. Such creatures may terrify even the most stout-hearted souls. But the recurring theme in his work is that the dark places in the human heart can be the greatest of all horrors.

His characters find themselves in existential crises, and they are not always able to resolve them. Sometimes they fail terribly, even though they believe they have actually succeeded. Sometimes they manage to reconnect with a part of their psyche that allows them to regain a sense of humanity.

Singh-Anand's monsters are nearly always metaphorical of psychological or social phenomena.

“Take ghosts, for example: to me, they represent the inability to let go of the past, ” he said.

Henry, the main character in his story “A Second Chance for Lost Souls, ” has become embittered by a crippling injury from a scuba diving trip. When the ghost of a five year-old boy enters into his life, he allows his anger to fight a battle he cannot possibly win.

And zombies?

“They are the walking dead, who feed on the flesh of the living. If their victims are not completely devoured, they become part of this mindless mob, ” Singh-Anand explained. “They represent society's tendency to squash individuality.”

In “Hungry Bob, ” the lone survivor of the zombie apocalypse may be barricaded safely in his house, but he has run out of food. While the soulless masses in the streets may not be able to get their hands on him, his demise appears to be inevitable.

Singh-Anand's literary influences in the horror genre are Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Bloch, Roald Dahl, and Emily Bronte.

Author's Notes: My life has been anything but boring. I've traveled to four continents, started Iowa's first federally recognized Wiccan church, and was the first person to launch a podcast in the state of Iowa.

I've set up libraries and started art education programs in juvenile correctional facilities, and I've been run out of town by snake-handling Pentecostals.
