About the Book

The author has claimed he will not put a story to paper unless it has personally made his flesh crawl (which is not a common occurrence). These dark tales are a path to an underworld of oddities and nightmares. There are eleven narrations in all, which entice the reader with eerie imagery, spiraling twists, and examinations of the boundaries of human nature. Fear is an old root that runs deep to the beating heart, and here among its exploration is a sharp and clear reflection. May these small, unsettling peaks into twilight give you an evening of locked doors, heart palpitations, and bubbling gooseflesh. Enjoy!
