Epilogue
Blurb:
In the Library of the Damned, hidden away amongst that vast depository of ancient wisdom, there exists a certain bookcase where the most decadent, the most blasphemous of tomes sit upon a dusty shelf. And amongst those titles that should never be named, there is one volume that is he most terrible, the most hideous of them all. That book is the very Lexicon of Fear itself. But, long ago, some of its pages were ripped from the binding and spirited away by a lowly student of the ancient science of Horrorology, determined that one day the secrets contained therein would be shared with the world. And now that day has come. These are the words that comprise the very language of horror itself, and the tales they tell are not for the fainthearted. But be warned: once you have read them, there is no turning back. Soon, you too will know the true meanings of fear . . .
