“A haunting and poignant anthology. The gorgeous voices within culminate to create a memorable work. These stories of grief, love, fear, and ghosts cut deep; the authors have infused Gothic elements in their own unique way, and the shadows of each tale will linger in the reader’s mind long after reading. A stunning addition to the horror canon.” – Sara Tantlinger, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Devil’s Dreamland
“Beautiful and heartbreaking, They Saw The Dead is one of those rare anthologies without a single subpar story. From start to finish I was fully immersed in the collection’s world of darkness, lost loves, and ghosts. A much-needed collection of diverse stories from BIPOC.” – Diversity in Horror
“Terrifying and thought-provoking, this anthology is perfect for fans of small stories that pack a big punch.” – Hannah Whitten, author of For the Wolf
