WHAT THE #@&% IS THAT? The Saga Anthology of the monstrous and the macabre is a 2016 anthology that contains the story Those Gaddam Cookies, written by Scott Sigler.

Book Synopsis

Twenty stories, and in every story, one character is guaranteed to say, "What the #@&% is that?"

Fear of the unknown—it is the essence of the best horror stories, the need to know what monstrous vision you're beholding and the underlying terror that you just might find out. Now, twenty authors have gathered to ask—and maybe answer—a question worthy of almost any horror tale: "What the #@&% is that?" Join these masters of suspense as they take you to where the shadows grow long and that which lurks at the corner of your vision is all too real.
