"Llewellyn spins out the potential horrors of being a woman into something that could only be at home in an urban legend or a blockbuster thriller, all while keeping the seed of powerless dread which exists every day for so many people."
                                                        — San Francisco Book Review

". . . masterfully written . . . thirteen thrillingly horrifying stories that will either give you the creeps or make you wonder how fragile humans are." 
                                                              — Manhattan Book Review

"Prepare to veer between being scared, repulsed and genuinely moved."
                                         — Carly Holmes, author of Figurehead

"A dazzlingly dark and twisted collection, combining elegant plot twists with a brilliantly observed vision of depravity and evil. Proof positive that human nature is ultimately the scariest subject of all."
              — Alan Bilton, author of The End of the Yellow House

"A collection that leaves you feeling damaged at the core for belonging to this fraternity of gloriously deranged beings. Impressive and important." 
                           — K.E. Barron, author of The Eye of Verishten

In this collection of short stories, Rachael Llewellyn adeptly traverses the outer edges of human experience and the horror that often comes with it. Twisting between the disturbing, the humorous, and the heartbreaking, Human Beings will forever change the way you look at your neighbour, how you treat your coworker, and even make you second guess the person lying next to you in bed. Because real monsters aren't what you see on late night television . . . the real monsters live just around the corner.
