A fairytale ball with a not-so-happy ending. A company that secretly experiments on the minds of the mentally ill. The Angel of Death with a deathwish of her own. Monsters who can kill with just one look into their eyes. These are just some of the stories When Night Falls has to offer. Fast-paced, thrilling, and filled to the brim with darkness and characters driven by the voices in their head, this collection focuses on the darker side of life. Trigger Warning: Not for the faint of heart. This collection contains stories that deal with difficult subject matter.

A good collection of flash and shorts, well-written and performed. I like the author's dark mood throughout. "Just like the shattered glass at the bottom of the trash can, once we fulfill our purpose, we have no place left on earth."
Well done, recommended!

I am going to die here. My name is Mindy Mason; I’m a student from the University. I volunteered for one experiment; it was to be for one day only. I want to go home now. I hear cries, screams, and shrieks in the night. Some of the voices sound as if they are coming from the pillow under my head, others as if from a radio behind a door in a far room, and yet others come from my dreams, thus layering my terror. I know Wendy has a knife; perhaps she has killed again. How can I stop her?

Another great story by DF. As always, creepy atmosphere, nicely crafted, and a pretty freaky idea. A little Cuckoo's Nest, a little Face Off, a lotta creepy. I really liked the narrator too!

Question: when do sewer rats in suburbia acquire intelligence and cunning? Answer: when they begin calling each other names. For Duff and Tuff, newly arrived on Conner's lawn after being ejected from a drain culvert during a flood, their I.Q. soon begins to rise while Conner's falls. Conner, you see, is obsessed with TV. Now the plan is to keep this bachelor from going through with his vow to change his life (and their situation) by pretending to be his supposedly deceased ex wife. Inspired by "Who Moved My Cheese?", this short fable has but one lesson: imagination is linked to reading, not watching television.

This one could've been a Vonnegut or Brautigan story. Very cleverly done and well-written. "Is it too much to ask to be happy, or is it too little?" Highly recommended.

Will the rise of machines result in our becoming slaves? What is the human consciousness? Science fiction fans whose typical Hollywood diet of future killer robots may not have considered the very real possibility that, when quantum computing gives rise to artificial intelligence, its rate of technological advancement will not only become exponential, but it will apprehend quickly (and scarily to us) who we are, and who IT is, especially if this A.I. has instant access to all human knowledge.

I have to admit, this isn't my usual type of book. I needed to listen because I've enjoyed so much of the author's other books. I was really surprised at his versatility with this one. The story is told through the first-person accounts of five different characters. They are easily distinguishable from one another, as this author is a real master of characterization. You'll connect deeply with the characters and become really invested in finding out the real story. The end will not disappoint. Anyone who enjoys big drama, and intimately-written, character-driven fiction will have quite an experience with this book. Highly recommended!

“Bad Bobby” Trent, star high school athlete, college scholarship holder, pro-rodeo circuit rider, lived an unencumbered life. He was a man, who, by his own definition, limited his concentration to no more than eight seconds at a time - the time required to ride a bull or saddlebronc and win. He’s tough, independent, shallow, and always looking for a good time. Then his father is murdered. Sheriff Robert Trent, was the longtime chief law enforcement officer of Lodge Pole County Montana. He was stern, fair, honest, and dependable.

This is the nine-book series of comedy-mysteries featuring the tough and crass, wise-cracking private detective who happens to be a hugely successful ladies' man. In a series of tales involving murder, blackmail, and other assorted acts of violence and deceit, Brett learns the hard way that there's a steep price to be paid for being such an unscrupulous bastard.

In 1691, the town of Crossfall taught the witch Thessaly how to die. They beat her, they shot her, they hung her--but nothing worked. When they finally tried to bury her alive Thessaly set the field against them. The first man died as a gust of wind harrowed the meat from his bones. A root,flung like a dirty javelin, cut a second man down. Many more deaths followed. The Preacher Fell impaled the witch upon her very own broom but she dragged him down into the field to wait for three more centuries.

I listened to it in parts (also available) but I recommend you get this one, because you'll want to listen to it as one book. I'd say it's a must for any horror fan. It's a good story, and finally, something new! Vernon writes some great stuff. Narrated very well too.
