The Toll - by Kealan Patrick Burke- A Halloween short
Cemetery Dance Publications continues their 13 Days of Halloween with a short from Kealan Patrick Burke entitled The Toll.
Burke is the author of the popular Timothy Quinn series which will see it's conclusion with the publication of Nemesis: The Death of Timothy Quinn this month. Available now as a signed, Limited Edition, hardcover and as an e-book on October 31st. You can get details at kealanpatrickburke.com.
The Toll is the story of Miles Camden who awakens to find himself sequestered in a pine box. A turn of events that actually comes as no surprise to Miles. Over the years, Miles has accumulated few friends and many enemies including three ex-wives.
The writing style is a bit different than anything I've read from Burke in the past so I asked him if his muse was channeling any specific writer from the past. He told me, "definitely a bit of Poe and Joseph Payne Brennan, I'd say."
The Toll is part of the 13 Days of Halloween from Cemetery Dance and is available from their website, as well as from Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
