“The female protagonists in Kate Jonez’s stories represent an incredible range of occupations and personality types. Here you will encounter housewives and teenagers, con artists, truck drivers, predators, tailors, nannies, college students, desperate mothers, widows, rich socialites, murderers, and scorned lovers. All of them experience a subtle or obvious wrongness in their lives which they struggle to resolve. All are interesting women, evocatively portrayed by an author who has mastered the fine art of character. The richly-detailed narratives range from crime stories to horror to tales which walk that subtle border between psychological anguish and the fantastic. LADY BITS shows off Kate Jonez’s impressive range.”
—Steve Rasnic Tem, author of EVERYTHING IS FINE NOW, FIGURES UNSEEN, and UBO
A troubled mother commits an unspeakable act to banish the demon that lurks in her root cellar. Ghosts from the past won’t release their hold on a young woman. A girl in search of a new job as a nanny finds herself in charge of a mysterious package that requires much more care than any child.
Lady Bits collects sixteen tales from Bram Stoker and Shirley Jackson award nominated author Kate Jonez that explores the horror nestled in the female heart. Vividly realized protagonists engage with an often-hostile world to deliver justice, lower a vengeance hammer, or to simply revel in evil. Prepare to be unsettled, disturbed, and terrified.
“Kate Jonez’s masterful fiction is an evocative blend of horror and psychological suspense, whose characters battle monsters born from the darkest recesses of our hearts and minds. The stories in LADY BITS show how rich horror can be when it explores the ghosts that haunt and terrify us the most—ourselves.”
— Tim Waggoner, author of THEY KILL
