Beneath the surface, no one can hear you scream. By turns terrifying and hilarious, Dead Bait 4 is an anthology about the fears that dwell beneath the surface — and within the human heart. Lake monsters, lamprey invasions, and humanoid fish from the deep are only some of the strange encounters in this collection of twenty-two stories of aquatic horror. From splatterpunk to horror comedy to literary surrealism, Dead Bait 4 is as wide-ranging as the bodies of water that encompass this planet. When the fish come out, you’d better believe there will be consequences.
