Are You My Mummy?

The ancient Egyptians were some creepy people.

When you died, they didn’t just bury you…they preserved their dead in a most delicate way. They had a strong belief in the afterlife. But it makes you wonder, the Egyptian mummification process. Did they expect their dead loved ones to return?

Who knows?

I asked writers to think about this and other ideas concerning mummies for this month’s issue.

The result was some pretty damn weird and scary tales. There are a couple of genre-blender stories; where horror crashes into alternate history and science fiction.

Enjoy!
