Among the stories are two about Jack the Ripper
Here is an excerpt from one of them.
"He had been choosy that night he killed. There were after all several he had thought suitable for dispatch. But then he spotted HER, his chosen. You are the first but not the last, mind. Not the last by any means.
She had been walking along Whitechapel Road, when he began following her. She glanced over her shoulder a few times. Then finally when she realized she was being followed she stopped.
He knew she’d be smiling. “Why, ain’t you the gent?”
She had sized him up, drunk as she was.
“Three pennies and you can do what you like for as long as you like. Then I’ll do it to you.”
He smiled and nodded. Then he made a courtly gesture for her to lead the way.
She began to ready herself. While she was in the process of hiking her skirt up, he grabbed her by the throat. She tried to scream, but with his fingers on her throat she could only gasp. Still, she put up a good struggle, kicking and trying to free herself.
He held her fast. “It’s time now…”
He was wondering if she heard him say that. Not that it would have mattered. Still, he wondered.
“It’s time for Mr. Rough and Ready to go to work.”
She knew. He saw her eyes widen—the light wasn’t good but he could just make out the look of terror in her eyes. She trembled with the first slice—but he kept on slicing—something like a sexual thrill was flowing over him, causing him to shudder. Now for the first time in his life he felt himself harden.
He smiled. He could cry with joy later. There wasn’t time now. Just time to shudder and pant and keep slicing.
The feeling eased. He stopped. It was time to leave. He only glanced down at her once. Just a quick glance but he tried so hard to remember everything so he could recall it later..."
End of excerpt
"There is no doubt that she soars above the endless parade of independent horror authors to shine as a true star in the darkness. With the brilliant anthology House of Horrors she proves why she is a perennial favorite. To put it simply, this is a great assembly of tales anyone would be proud to have in their collection"
"I grew up with horror legends such as King, Koontz, Poe, Shelley, Stoker and I added Gill to that list."
