Tales Of The Lost Volume II: A Covid-19 Charity Anthology
Edited by Bram Stoker Award Winner Eugene Johnson and Steve Dillon
We lose many things during our time in this universe. From the moment we are born we start losing time, and loss becomes a part of our life from the beginning. We lose friends (both imaginary and real), loved ones, pets, and family. We gain stuff and lose stuff, from our socks to our money. We can lose our hope, sanity, passions, our mind, and perhaps even our soul! In the end when death finds us, we end up losing everything… Don't we?
Loss is part of who we are. We can't escape it. We learn from it, grow from it, and so much more. Some of the greatest stories ever forged come from loss. Within this book is some of those stories.

«Tales of the Lost 2 could be called “Tales of the Dark Heart!” From a coming home story that ends in a not-so-typical cemetery scene to a couple of ultimate sacrifices driven by love, this is a book filled with stories to tear at your heart while making you shiver. There are macabre jack-in-the-boxes and soul-stealing virtual reality games and an apocalypse vision of a mother's love the likes of which I've never read before. These are stories of love and longing and selfless giving and aching loss … with frequent visits from the monstrous things that inhabit the night. This is a volume of horrific heart and chilling beauty.”
— John Everson, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Covenant and Voodoo Heart
“Comprising unnerving tales of loss from horror's best-loved writers, LOST 2 is haunting, uncanny, and deeply disquieting. Prepare to lose sleep while reading this one.” — Lee Murray, award-winning author of INTO THE ASHES.
