A Plague of Shadows: A Written Remains Anthology, edited by JM Reinbold and Weldon Burge, Smart Rhino Publications, 2018. Cover art by Tomoki Hayasaka, info:

We believe in ghosts. Do you? Expecting the usual? Please don’t. You won’t find haunted houses, spirit infested graveyards, demonic poltergeists, or possessed objects in these pages. It’s been said that there are no haunted places, only haunted people. That’s who you’ll find here, the haunted ones. A maintenance technician in remote Alaska, an English thief, a young couple on a road trip across America, an astronaut on a one way ride to Jupiter, an Irish gravedigger, and dozens more. All victims of an otherworldly infection, all tormented by a plague of shadows. Do you believe in ghosts? You will. This anthology includes stories and poetry by the members of the Written Remains Writers Guild, as well invited, renowned guest authors.
