Monsters - By Stewart O'Nan - A Halloween short
I've been a fan of Cemetery Dance Publications for a few years now and this year they've collaborated with some of their favorite genre writers to release a series of Halloween themed short stories.
The first selection is Monsters by Stewart O'Nan, a wonderful story of childhood friendship deeply affected by a terrible accident.
Halloween is coming and best friends, Mark and Derek, were chosen to be Monsters from Creatures from the Black Lagoon in the church's Halloween walk-through. What happens before the big day is monstrous and sad, and O'Nan takes the reader on a tension filled journey with hopes of a happy ending.
Monsters is a nice start to the 13 Days of Halloween from Cemetery Dance and is available from their website, as well as Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
