Mirrors are fascinating. They reflect everything accurately the things that are in front of them, or do they? Scientists were at one time attempting to create a mirror which showed everything the way the viewer would see it, not the back-to-front reflection we are used to.

Mirrors can be menacing. They can reveal our innermost fears – sometimes showing us those fears in ghastly and horrific forms. Mirrors can speak, according to the fairy tale, giving the viewer what she wanted up to a point, until it no longer became the truth.
Mirrors hold many secrets. This anthology reveals some of those secrets and horrors as the talented writers who have allowed me to use their work explore in tales of woe, blood, gore and murder. Here are the real nasties hiding behind the silvered backs of seemingly innocuous mirrors.
Look in them at your peril.
