...a young man tries to build a better life while trapped in a mall after a plague has killed off most of humanity...

...zombies overrun a world gone mad, leaving a boy with no choice but to rely on possibly mystical means of escape...

...Halloween night brings out a darkness so threatening that a young couple's only hope of survival may be a procession of strange, ghostly children...

...when the world is given a brief glimpse of divinity, a formerly disabled man must come to grips with the fact that not everything is as good as it seems...

These tales and many more await in The Gate 2: 13 Tales of Isolation and Despair, the new collection edited by Robert J. Duperre. Thirteen talented authors have been assembled, bringing with them the best they have to offer in a wide range of horror, be it slice-of-life or paranormal in nature. Also included are two bonus stories by the editor.
