Haunted is a novel made up of twenty-three horrifying, hilarious, and stomach-churning stories. They’re told by people who have answered an ad for a writer’s retreat and unwittingly joined a “Survivor”-like scenario where the host withholds heat, power, and food.

This week I learned that if you want to know what your large intestine would feel like on the outside of your body, simply fill a lamb skin condom with peanut butter and enjoy. Also; there's no chlamydia on Venus.

A group of people are locked into a building, but they did so willingly at first. This is a great collect...
