The Thing Under Your Bed by Stephen Kozeniewski
It hates you. It wants to devour you and everyone you love.
Dad’s at work. Mom’s dead drunk and no help whatsoever.
Maybe your stuffed rabbit can help, since he seems to be alive and talking now. Then again, maybe that just means you’ve finally gone around the bend.
Whatever plan you come up with to survive the night, though, you’d better not let so much as a fingertip stray off your mattress. If you do, you’ll be ripped to bloody chunks by…
THE THING UNDER YOUR BED.

A Novella of Terror
The Thing Under Your Bed is a novella of terror by Stephen Kozeniewski. It taps into that age-old childhood fear in a new and horrifyingly brutal way that I found unexpected and deeply haunting. Kozeniewski’s style here is both straightforward and poignant, while the story itself is brutally relentless. Underlying the blatant, compelling storyline of fear and (graphic) violence and bullying at the hands of the merciless thing under the bed is a disturbing and haunting reveal of a troubled young girl with an abusive alcoholic mother and a father she idolizes who will surely make it all better one day. Whether you’re in it for the graphic horror of the tale or for the combination of horror story and powerful but subtle depth, you will enjoy the impactful story of The Thing Under Your Bed. And probably sleep with a light on for a bit after reading it.
