Colleen Anderson’s “The Book With No End”

Colleen Anderson’s “The Book With No End” (from Bibliotheca Fantastica, ed. by Don Pizarro) made the Stoker 2013 preliminary ballot! To celebrate, we’ve made it free to read online for a limited time.

Eligible for the “Superior Achievement in Short Fiction” award, Anderson’s story is definitely horror, yet perfectly fit within the confines of Bibliotheca Fantastica, a book about books. Neon: a Literary Magazine said the story, “Starts innocently enough, but quickly becomes dark and deeply unsettling.”

Yes, it does. Anderson’s titular book is written in blood and sacrifice, ancient and obfuscated, and the secrets it offers up are not to be sought lightly.

Download the PDF here: Anderson.BookWithNoEnd.DaganBooks  (It’s set up in the same format as the print book; we recommend you read it in the “two pages” view for best effect.)
