Peel Back and See




“Mike Thorn brings his masterful skill with immersive language and style to this beautiful and disturbing collection.” – Laurel Hightower, author of Crossroads and Whispers in the Dark


“With Peel Back and See, Mike Thorn plants one bloody foot in the history of horror and the other firmly in its future.” – Sam Richard, author of Sabbath of the Fox-Devils and To Wallow in Ash & Other Sorrows

In spaces both familiar and strange, unknowable horrors lurk.

From the recesses of the Internet, where cosmic terror shows its face on an endless live feed, to a museum celebrating the sordid legacy of an occultist painter, this chilling collection of sixteen short stories will plunge you into the eerie, pessimistic imagination of Mike Thorn. Peel Back and See urges its readers to look closer, to push past surface-level appearances and face the things that stir below.

“Mike Thorn’s Peel Back and See is a stunning show-stopper of a fiction collection.” – Eric LaRocca, author of Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke
