Dark Divinations and the Reading of Entrails

Today’s story from Naching T. Kassa–who also edited this anthology for Horror Addicts.net–“They Wound Like Worms,” is in epistolary form (though, obviously, not a novel as discussed on that link.)

It deals with the reading of entrails. This form of divination goes back to at least the ancient Roman haruspices (singular Haruspex.)

In this macabre story, the protagonist graduates from the reading of cat entrails to anthropomancy Here’s another article discussing anthropomancy if you are interested.

And that is all you get for now. Spoilers, sweetie!
