Somewhere along the Virginia / North Carolina state line, nestled in an open field that is impossible to find if you try, sits a fair ground where the employees are far from your typical carnies. When the McPherson family decides to stop in and ask for directions, they never imagine they might not make it out alive.


Adam Monroe arrives at home after a tiring day at work, only to find that his garage door opener doesn't seem to be working. Then neither does his key. When his wife finally answers the front door she greets Adam with his worst nightmare: not knowing who he is. Chased off his own lawn by an imposter who has apparently taken Adam's place in his own life, Adam isn't quite sure where to turn or what to do.


Jordan Garbar thought he was going to have a nice evening alone to enjoy a basketball game on TV. When the snowballs start to spatter against his house's windows, he first credits the neighborhood kids being typical pranksters. But it doesn't take long for Jordan to realize that there's something much more sinister lurking in the snow than mischievous children.


In this touching story, Bill (Billy to most of his friends) talks about baseball, childhood friends, and his first crush that turned into a love that would haunt him for the rest of his life.


When Marsha Renolds leaves her cheating husband and takes her seven year-old son, Sam, to a new town to live, she is at first thrilled with the incredible deal she gets on a lovely little house in the woods. Sam, however, begins to frequently see a visiting house-guest, and he's not entirely sure of its intentions.


Readers of Dan Dawkins' novel REGRET know about Jackson Hugh all to well, and the evil he's capable of. In this ORIGNIAL Jackson Hugh story, Dan Dawkins introduces readers to Jackson for the first time, and the secrets that he keeps beneath his suave exterior.

Jackson knows he can no longer kill in his own city. He's gotten too lucky as it is, no sense continuing to pee in the same pool. Which is why he looks forward to his business trips oh so much. His rules are very simple, the simplest being: Arrive in town, kill girl, leave town the next day, no questions asked. It's worked marvelously so far. But when Mother Nature surprises Jackson with a freak blizzard, stranding him in the town of his newest victim, suddenly all the rules go out the window.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read! 5 Jan 2012

For me, the scariest stories are the ones that 'could' happen. These stories are just that. They could happen (for the most part). The author is good at suspending belief when needed and paints a great setting. He can conjure up good characters that are believable and yes, scary! Love his work and this one didn't disappoint.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Short Story Read 30 Aug 2011

Oh My God! I like to change a bit from novels and read short stories from time to time. Well I just started to read this one and I want say that the first story in this book was just the scariest story I have read in a long time. This story would make Stephen King proud. For anyone who has a weak stomach don't read this one...

If you're a fan of macabre short stories, then this book is for you. I couldn't put it down! I would finish one story and dive right into the next one. These stories cause you to really think....

4.0 out of 5 stars Very diverse mix made for a enjoyable read 8 Sep 2013

Thinking I was going to get all horror I was pleasantly surprised to find that, psychological thriller and even a good old fashioned feel good kind of story. It was for me a very quick read and left me wanting much more. I would recommend it to anyone trying to fill a gap in the day or just wanting a momentary getaway from everyday life.
