The Exhumation Collection

Diabolique Magazine’s excursion into the world of original content continues to grow. With the exception of this most recent entry, on the last friday of every month, Diabolique Magazine is releasing another installment in our exclusive new original short story series: THE EXHUMATION COLLECTION.

The Exhumation Collection is devoted to bringing you, our horror readers, challenging, thought-provoking, dread-inspiring literature by the best up-and-coming genre writers in the horror community. Sometimes surreal, sometimes nightmarish, and sometimes even hilarious, these stories reflect the standards held by Diabolique as a brand, and we are proud to associate ourselves with these brilliant writers.

Our third entry into The Exhumation Collection, following “The Drowning” by Catherine E. Kovach and the spine-tingling “Hisako San” by Hammer Horror icon Ingrid Pitt, we offer a tale of internal terror, showcasing the horror of transformation, deception and the Faustian consequences of insatiable desire with “The Lady of the House” by Matthew Sean McLachlan.

McLachlan is an acclaimed up-and-coming writer out of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. His short story, “Risk of Rain”, was most recently published on the e-zine Burial Day Books. “The Lady of the House” is an atmospheric and unsettling story of a young desperate man, driven to a seductive mystic by an unhealthy obsession. So bite your tongue, open your eyes and gaze into the darkness of The Exhumation Collection with “The Lady of the House” by Matthew Sean McLachlan…
