Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Six tales of modern horror and the supernatural from a delightfully twisted mind.

Invocation of the Incisor: A couple vacationing with their infant daughter at the Delaware shore awaken an ancient secret.

Occupants: A novice occultist is initiated into the dark truth behind alien abductions.

Lunch Meat: In the dsytopian future, meat is not quite what it seems.

The Milk Man: A kidnapped corporate fixer has his lactose intolerance pushed to horrifying limits. (This one always gets a good audience reaction when read aloud, particularly when I use a glass of milk as a prop.)

The Blackwater Lights: A reporter investigating mysterious aerial lights in a rural West Virginia town comes face-to-face with their mind-melting source. (Originally published in the anthology Legends of the Mountain State: Ghostly Tales from the State of West Virginia, edited by Michael Knost and published by Woodland Press).

Enochian Call: A call to a phone sex line leads to a hellish encounter with a faceless sexual predator.

These are unconventional and original horror stories—sorry, no vampires, zombies, or typical genre monsters. But if you like emotionally affecting and psychological horror, you can't go wrong with this stellar collection.
