Publisher's Summary

When three siblings return to their hometown for their estranged father’s funeral, burying the ghosts of the past proves to be impossible in this chilling story by the author of Mysterious Skin.

Forty years ago, triplets Miriam, Louise, and Edward were swept up in a case of rural mass hysteria. Coerced into fabricating unspeakable lies about their first-grade teacher and her adult son, they were complicit in destroying two lives. Ever since, they have believed they are being followed by a presence still seeking retribution for their childhood sins. Unless their guilty consciences are conjuring as many monsters as their innocent minds once did.

Loam is part of Disorder, a collection of six short stories of living nightmares, chilling visions, and uncanny imagination that explore a world losing its balance in terrifying ways. Each piece can be read or listened to in a single disorienting sitting.

Wanted to hear more !

What a great story ! One to be heard around camp fires in the fall. Yes, you know where it’s going, but it’s interesting none the less.

Believe?

It is said we must believe when a child says he or she has been abused. But if words have been put into that child's mouth, lives can be destroyed. Even after listening to this tale, I'm still confused.

Spooky

I really enjoyed this story! It was pretty creepy, but I can appreciate that kind of thing. The story was tied up pretty well in the end, which is pretty important to me. This is definitely the best one in the short story collection.
