Our final creature in the anthology, demons. Every culture has reference to them and they seem to thrive on human fear. Cave Yates is here to tell us a bit about what makes them scary:
All fears have one thing in common, a lack of control. It is the essential element to humanity that we want to preserve ourselves and others we care about. And fear, in it’s most base existence, is the lack of being able to control our fates. Whether it is the fear of heights, arachnophobia, agoraphobia, getting old, or the fear of what goes bump in the night, it is the things beyond our control that frighten us. And we spend billions of dollars as a species to eliminate and conquer those fears. Some seek therapy, some seek avoidance, some take the fear head on. But what happens when the fear fights back? For too long humanity has dismissed the existence of monsters that can prey on your deepest fear. Disbelief is not a shield, it is a bullseye.
We hope you're as excited about our upcoming anthology as we are! There will be monsters who terrify, creatures who just want to be understood, and new friends to make. Join us November 17th for a journey into the realm of fantastic creatures!
