Publisher's Summary

Something strange lurks just beyond the woodline

The woods and forests can be a true dichotomy of experiences. For many they offer a peaceful connection to nature, but for some they have been a source of terror. In the shadows of towering trees and hidden in the brush, these unlucky few have encountered creatures or monsters that most think only inhabit our nightmares.

Steve Stockton, a veteran outdoorsman and paranormal researcher, has put together a vast collection of over eighty terrifying, odd and strange encounters. These chilling tales may leave you questioning whether you ever want to journey into the woods again.

Grade school kids in TN with BB guns

Disappointed overall with grade school kid experiences dominating the stories. Steve Stockton doesn’t do the narration, which is another reason I wasn’t happy with it.

Save your money and your time

These stories are ridiculous and the narrator is so boring I almost recommend this to use as a sleep aid.

Solid listen with a few weaknesses

This is a solid set of quality stories.

However, there are two drawbacks for me:

1. The narrator has a nice voice and good diction. However, his tone is sometimes more ironic and slightly humorous sounding than I would prefer for something that's supposed to sound creepy.

2. Speaking of creepy, I would have split this book into two volumes. One volume of more scary and creepy material and another one of more interesting, "wow that's kind of weird," kind of stories.

Overall though this is a quality piece of work.

Bizarre

These stories are pretty far fetched, to the point where they were just silly. Not impressed.

Entertaining stories

I'm not sure how terrifying these tales were. It was a mix of paranormal, supernatural and mundane stories. Some of them were a little scary. Some of them were shocking. A few were even amusing. One of my favorites was the "Light in the Coffin". The ending of it was completely unexpected.

Joe Hempel did a tremendous job of reading the stories. I fully intend to listen to this book again.
