  • “What the People Want” is an alternate history legal mystery about what happens when the law becomes a product of popular culture.
  • “Traffic Light” is about a carjacking with a terrible motive.
  • In “Old Lady Prideaux’s Terrible Menagerie,” an ex-cop is asked to investigate the odd old lady who lives across the street – and discovers truths far weirder than he could’ve imagined.
All of these stories can be found in Animus: Six Tales of Crime and Terror.
