Dark Dreams Print Edition Now Available

 

 

 

I'm happy to announce that the print edition of my horror collection Dark Dreams is now available from Amazon.com.

 

A quintet of dark dreams…

The old legend warns that you should never keep a pumpkin past Christmas. He should have paid attention. As our skeptical gardener is about to find out, a vampire pumpkin is a very bad thing to have around the house.

A medical photographer discovers a strange, parasitic life force lurking within the hospital. Can she stop it before it kills again?

An old furnace develops a taste for warm-blooded, living things.

A long weekend at a remote cottage seems like the perfect party opportunity for Paige and her friends. But as night falls, the forest comes alive with terror. The group suddenly finds themselves in a desperate fight for their lives.

A dark, lonely road. A driver on the edge of exhaustion. A sudden shape appears in the headlights. No time to react. What he hits turns out to be far more terrifying than he could ever imagine.

 

Dark Dreams includes stories : PunkinHead, Bio Hazard, The Furnace Man, Long Weekend and Miles To Go.

 

 

Excerpt from the story Miles To Go:

Wet ground crept by in a pool of yellow light. His hands were sweaty now where they gripped the  steering wheel as he prowled slowly back through the alien, white landscape.

Each column of parting fog renewed the terror of what he might find. His imagination eagerly supplied the gruesome details: a dying raccoon, desperately trying to drag itself from the road. Worse still, the vacant eyes of a dead man staring accusingly back at him.

Or perhaps that he had completely lost his mind and dreamed the whole incident.

The ground began to slope upwards. He breathed a sigh of relief.

Then, in the fog-shortened beam of his headlights, he saw a lump of something dark against the black ribbon of the road.

Weston slammed the car into park. Leaving the motor running and the lights on, he crept toward the black shape in the road. The car's key alarm dinged several times, then fell silent.

Too big for a cat or a fox, he thought, stopping to examine the thing from a few feet away. The way its back hunched toward him, it couldn't be a dog, unless the spine was broken. At least it wasn't a person. Raccoon maybe. He crept closer. Not like any raccoon he'd ever seen.

For one thing, it had no fur...
