(Bloomington, IN, June 13, 2010) – Dan Dillard brings you his latest collection of stories, a ‘series- of- scaries’ for so-called adults. Eighteen shorts in all, each one deals with a different sort of demon. If you like horror, there is something there for you. No Hollywood endings, and even the usual suspects, be they vampires or zombies have a totally new slant.
In “Unlucky in Death”, David goes to therapy because he has been bitten by a vampire and is having issues dealing with it. He misses bacon and was a morning person. This dark comedy finds him confronting the one who turned him for some rather unorthodox advice.
“The Demon of Walker’s Woods” takes you back to childhood when your neighborhood was the whole world, the friends were the best you’d ever hope for and the house on the corner caged an old woman who represented unspeakable evil. The children of the neighborhood plot against her, the parents loathe her, but what she is may be more terrifying than any of their wildest imaginations. This story has been compared to “It” and “Too Kill a Mockingbird”
“Pig Man” is an apparition that a little girl sees when her father leaves on business travel. He stands by the window at the bottom of the stairs and watches the moon. What he is waiting for is a mystery, but when the sign comes, he has the worst of intentions.
There are thirteen other stories that showcase aliens, murderous mothers and even a possessed family dog.
Dan is an indie author with a diverse background. He’s worked regular jobs, served in the US Military and is married with two children. He is also a musician and artist that has a passion for telling a story and he writes with the delicacy of a sledgehammer. There are two more books to be published later this year: another horror collection entitled “What Tangled Webs” and the paranormal novella, “The Unauthorized Autobiography of Ethan Jacobs.”
