Flash Fiction Fishbowl 2 - Horror

Twelve people left prompts this fishbowl, two more than in the first attempt.

I've finished 16 pieces of flash fiction, with a total wordcount of about 5800 (including one story that isn't flash fiction anymore, but cracked 1000 words).

Total tips received were high enough for an ebook, which has been assembled; I'm currently looking into getting it proofread.
