Stories of madness, the love of children, and terror that break through the calm of everyday life to reveal the shifting uncertainties that lie below.
Reading Congreve's mutant vampire fiction is like winning a strange lottery. You won't know whether to be terrified or delighted.
When the stuff of life takes control...

- A father hires a private investigator to find the body of his daughter, Cindy, on Sydney's mean streets. But Cindy is alive and much more than she seems.
- Hack journalist Tony Masters is doublecrossed by his editor and consigned to Hell to interview Satan...endlessly. There he meets a creature out of the worst nightmares of a Japanese B-grade monster movie producer.
- A mother vampire struggles to feed and protect her children in Sydney's western suburbs.
"The product of Congreve's darkly unique imagination, these stories are set to reinvent the landscape of Australian horror fiction." - Robert Hood.
