Tony Collina’s brother has just died in a steel factory accident. His friends urge him to take a stand against the factory owners, but it’s 1937 and Tony has a family to support. What he’s forgetting is that brotherhood changes everything, whether it’s the fraternal ties of the union or the undying bonds of blood.
“Brotherhood,” a short story that first appeared in the anthology Haunted Holidays, is also available as part of Space Magic, the award-winning collection of science fiction and fantasy stories by David D. Levine.

It began soon after the Millennium. Reports of newborns with strange malformations, too weak to live…caused by a single genetic mutation. Or, as the press quickly dubbed it, the Dragon Virus. Scientists predicted that it was an evolutionary dead end; that the mutation would burn itself out quickly; that it was nothing to be worried about.
They were wrong.

Seven tales of supernatural horror . . .

The dark forest of fairy tales hides things more perilous than wolves and wicked stepmothers. Are you prepared for what you’ll find?
