From American actor, comedian, and filmmaker Jordan Peele comes a dark, tense, emotional and unique collection of genre-bending stories called Out There Screaming.

Fans of Black Mirror will enjoy these stories about cars with eyes, a brother and sister monster hunting team, a man running from his future, aliens, sirens, artificial intelligence, grief, cursed objects, mythology, and tradition, Out There Screaming will leave you feeling a spectrum of emotion.

These tales are creepy, sometimes funny, and many convey a poignant message about the horrors of racism. With a mix of horror, science fiction, speculative fiction, folklore and social commentary, there is bound to be something that will resonate with every reader. My favourites are The Other One, Lasirèn, The Rider, Pressure, Dark Home, The Norwood Trouble, Your Happy Place, and Hide & Seek. I can’t wait to read more by these authors.
