New horror anthology Spellbound – Now available

Spellbound is the fourth anthology in the Box Under the Bed series compiled by Dan Alatorre. I have participated in two of the previous anthologies, Dark Visions and Nightmareland. This year I had the privilege to not only contribute two short stories to Spellbound, but also to help edit certain of the other contributions.


From the creators of the #1 bestselling horror anthology Nightmareland, the follow up to the #1 bestseller Dark Visions, and the #1 bestseller The Box Under The Bed comes a new collection for your darker tastes: Spellbound – a horror anthology with 27 stories from 16 authors.

A young girl and her mother seek out a mysterious sorceress to guide the child in developing her powers, but the beautiful blonde witch has ideas of her own – and desires a powerful book that only the child can give her.
Tremble along as the stories in the magical book are revealed. “Some are true, some are false, and some are spells disguised as stories, to hide our kind from those who would do us harm.”

* A young man is given a family heirloom at his mother’s funeral, but her protection can’t save him from himself.
* A sailing ship takes a journey to the new world and discovers horrors along the way.
* A young girl seeks a connection with her parents but learns she isn’t magical enough.
* And many more!

Compiled by USA Today bestselling author Dan Alatorre, this anthology of horror once again unites the talents of more than a dozen amazing authors.

  1. Congratulations Robbie. I am not a big reader of horror or scary stories, but I downloaded this one to see if small doses (short stories) during this month might not fill a taste for me.

  2. My brain is blank and I can’t remember if I commented on this post! Lol. So if the congrats is a repeat, I apologize. Congrats on the latest anthology and the perfect timing, Robbie! A great list of authors. I’m looking forward to giving it a try. 🙂
