Little Dead Red & Other Stories

by Mercedes M. Yardley
Release date: May 2018
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasydark fantasy, short stories

Mercedes Murdock Yardley is known to some as Miss Murder. Known as one of the top new voices in Horror, Yardley recently won the Bram Stoker Award for her novelette Little Dead Red – it quickly became one of our favorite pieces of short, Horror fiction. The story, a gut-punch, modern retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, is as incredible as it is dark.

​Vault Books is extremely pleased to publish a limited edition printing of the Bram Stoker winning story, Little Dead Red along with selected other short stories and essays. Little Dead Red & Other Stories will be an exclusive printing of this collection unavailable anywhere else, and will showcase Yardley’s ability to terrify us with short stories, flash-fiction, and of course, her award winning novelette.
