Publisher's Summary

People spend their entire lives staving off the dark - but no matter the measures taken, black paths and shadowy pits lurk in the unlikeliest of places, waiting to pull the unwary into the depths of despair.

These 11 tales offer a morbid sampling of the many forms and fashions of terror - from the subtle prickling of neck hairs at the kiss of a ghostly breeze to the raw-throated screams and feverish clawing of a desperate fight for survival.

Witness 11 people torn from their ordinary lives and cast into twisted realities that test their sanity, faith, and very will to live.…

A pilot must land a crippled aircraft on an impossible runway.… A doctor feels far too much sympathy for his deformed patients.… A schoolgirl’s secret contract could cost her mother’s soul.… A woman whose pack-rat obsessions hide the obscene.…For these and seven others, the darkness comes from within and without, subtle, deadly…and relentless.

Creepier Than Stephen King

I wasn't sure how to rate this collection. The whole time I was reading/listening I kept wanting to smash my iPad or head against the wall and just make it stop, or somehow unheard what I had already heard. I found it depressing and gloomy. But at the same time I realized that I couldn't stop no matter how much I wanted to. There's something about the macabre that peaks our interest. These tales are like Tales From the Dark Side. They are short but great. There was only a couple I found so so. As for the rating, I went with 5 stars because I sometimes like dark, creeepy tales. If that's not your cup of tea, you won't like these. Simon Wood has the creepiest mind. If I was his wife, I don't think I would sleep in the same room as him lol. He has the most perfect and unique statements describing things. You know when there's something so horrid you just can't give it a description? His are spot on! It makes me think, Yeah! That's exactly how I feel! For this and his wonderful creepiness, I give this collection a 5 star rating.

If you like audiobooks, you would love this in audio. The narrators are perfect. I loved them!
