Publisher's Summary

"In Mister Alexander's neighborhood, it gets very dark very early.” (Steve DuBois)

“The nine stories in Michael Alexander's creepy collection, Boarded Windows, Dead Leaves, explore the creepier side of humanity. The tone is set by 'A Profound Impact' and doesn't let up. He takes on some of the standard horror tropes but also explores new grounds, all the while staying faithful to the theme that there are some very scary things out there, and you'd better be afraid.” (Vincent Moore, professor of English and humanities, Tiffin University and author of Emily Dickinson, Ninja Assassin)

“It depends on what you fear more, visiting the dead or being visited by the dead, which of these 'nine macabre tales' you will find the most macabre. Will you be haunted more by living (and dying) the last moment of a laser-sliced brain, or by the returning soul able to possess many bodies at once, or by the experience of being eaten alive? Regardless of which one digs deepest into your anxieties, you won’t soon forget any of the stories in Michael Jess Alexander’s Boarded Windows, Dead Leaves.” (H. L. Hix, author of Demonstrategy)

From cultish rituals to cosmic horror, Michael Jess Alexander's collection of horror fiction will leave you disquieted and unsettled.

In "Chatterbox", a college professor is haunted by the spirit of a former student.

"A Profound Impact" tells the story of a lost group of people who finally find a place they belong.

In "Space for Amateurs", a science experiment goes horribly awry.

These tales and six others await you in this haunting volume of horror fiction.

horrifying, unique and funny in a twisted way

This is hands down, one of the absolute best audio narrations I've ever heard. These terrifying tales are brought to life in a provocative fashion by amazing voice actors and dramatic sound editing. Not only that but the stories told in this short collection are horrifying, unique and funny in a twisted way. This is an absolute blast and a must-have audiobook.

Fun quick listen

This collection of short stories is a fun listen that reminded me of the anthology series ‘Tales From The Crypt.’ The stories have a good dose of horror and usually include a comic or ironic twist.

Great book, loved the irony

I really liked this book. The Author does a great job of explaining the characters and the setting. His descriptions are wonderful, I feel like I'm in the story. I also like the irony the author uses. I particularly liked in "Warm and Tender", the idea of the man who decided to become a zombie so that he could at least still be in intact, but then is all gone at the end.
