THE NIGHT HIDER by Graham Masterton
C. S. Lewis wrote about a portal that led to a world of magic and enchantment. But the wardrobe in Dawn’s room holds only death—until she solves its grisly mystery.
WHATEVER by Richard Christian Matheson
A 1970s rock ’n’ roll band that never was—in a world that is clearly our own . . . but perhaps isn’t, not anymore . . . or, at least, not yet—takes one hell of a trip.
The Deep End by Robert R. McCammon is a haunting tale with a creepy and mysterious advisary. I always like McCammon's descriptions. They're so visual that it reels the reader in. No pun intended.
Interval by Norman Prentiss makes a bad day of work seem inconsequential when it comes to what lurks between hope and dismay. This was a unique story and one I wish I could read more of.
If These Walls Could Talk by Shawntelle Madison. What can I say? It was a classic. Gotchic building, unsuspecting victims and a villain in the wings. What threw me was the ending. What the heck?! I mean this as a compliment. I could have had another 100 pages.
The Night Hider by Graham Masterton is a heart-pounding story that involves a bit of C.S. Lewis. I found this to be fascinating! The premise behind the "night hider" was a cool take too.
Whatever by Richard Christian Matheson is a unique tale. It took a bit more for me to get into but was a great conclusion to the anthology.
Don't have a lot of time on your hands? Take on a short story from this anthology. It's not long and will please those looking for a good, creepy story.
