Five Horror Stories: Tales of Mystery, Misery, and the Macabre. A Collection

“I shouldn’t have agreed to the procedure. I shouldn’t have signed my name, but who didn’t?” from The Curse of a Heartbeat “I lived in a small, simple flat, almost devoid of life. The front of the building was as the face of one who perished. The windows were his clouded eyes, and the door his gaping mouth. Even the smell of the place seemed to remind most of a rotting corpse. The place complimented me well, as I am one who was, and is, close to Death.”from When Old Men Hang “You want this?” I held it out to him. He reached out and took it, but it dropped straight through his hand. I collapsed, shaking, to the ground, crawling backward, my hands slipping in the mud (and God knows what else).” from When Young Men Die … This book is a collection of five short stories selected by the author Michael Henderson. They were written sporadically over a span of seven years, between 2015 and 2022. The collection is composed of five stories, “When Old Men Hang,” “The Curse of a Heartbeat,” “The Lost Biologist,” “When Young Men Die,” and “The City and the Devil.”. The content in this collection is for adults. The stories contain disturbing imagery.

Meet Michael Henderson

Michael Henderson began writing at a young age. Following his passion, he went to University and studied English for several years. He didn’t graduate, but instead chose a different pursuit: drug abuse. Now, sober, and with a brain thoroughly cooked by miscellaneous substances, he has returned to his older, more tame passion–writing. Michael lives with his family in Alpine, California. He regularly publishes poetry, short stories, and nonfiction on Medium.com.
