Welcome to Brightside. Make yourself comfortable...you won't be leaving. They call us Thought Thieves, but it's not like we have a choice. All the sick, twisted things rolling around in people's heads, we can't help but hear. That's why they rounded us up, stuck us in this little town. It's to make you feel safe. But they can't keep us here forever. It's day 100, and it's all gonna end. One way or another, I'm getting out of Brightside.
"Unusual, dark and gritty"
Each Dawn I Die contains ten thoroughly twisted tales from Mark Tullius. The setting of each tale varies from the next, yet the idea that permeates all of them is the author's preoccupation with discovering evil in the ordinary.
"Dark, twisted and thrilling"
Author Mark Tullius will leave you wondering, "Where does he come up with this stuff?" Experience chills as you read these stories and more: An artist whose paintings become reality. A man who longs to rid himself of an annoying companion. A child terrified by things that slither and ooze in the night. A woman who sniffs out killers. A life coach whose own brand of "therapy" goes way beyond cruel and unusual.
"Like Twilight Zone? Love this."
A totalitarian state doesn't just happen overnight. It's a slow, dangerous slide. 25 Perfect Days chronicles the path into a hellish future of food shortages, contaminated water, sweeping incarceration, an ultra-radical religion, and the extreme measures taken to reduce the population. Through 25 interlinked stories, each written from a different character's point of view, 25 Perfect Days captures the sacrifice, courage, and love needed to survive and eventually overcome this dystopian nightmare.
"Great story, but narration is a little bland"
In the first of a series of short stories leading up to Brightside, the protagonist, a teenage Joe Nolan, finds himself in a comprising position. Listeners learn that from a young age, people in the telepath's life often assume they know just what he wants, when all along it's he who understands their most personal thoughts and desires.
A small collection of short horror stories that you should listen to with the lights on. Come join a soldier on the run in the jungle, a coed's late night at the computer lab, a doctor's visit to the insane asylum, an old man's quest for the perfect photo, and a family's unique Christmas ritual.
"Little bits of horror"
It's Grandma's house - quiet, cozy, nestled on a mountain in West Virginia. What could possibly go wrong? A lot, actually. Horrific accidents, despicable creatures, a vile beast, and detestable grandparents leap into your mind. One misstep will get you and your little sister killed. This audiobook consists of the main storyline plus all the Choose Your Own Adventure-style death scenes found in the ebook.
"Try not to die"
Five interlinked stories, each written from a different character's point of view, 5 More Perfect Days continues the dystopian nightmare of 25 Perfect Days, with more tales of the sacrifice, courage, and love needed to survive and overcome this nightmare.
"Another great set of stories"
