Ever heard the legend of the Apple Tree Man? You're supposed to leave him the last apple of the season or else next year's crop will go bad.

In this short story by award winning author Joel Arnold, the legend of the Apple Tree Man turns sinister when a group of childhood friends get even with old man Hench. Years later, still full of regret over what transpired that night so long ago, the friends begin to die one by one. Coincidence? Or has the Apple Tree Man come to exact his revenge?

The Apple Tree Man is also available in Arnold's story collection Bait & Other Stories.
