“There never was any heart truly great and generous, that was not also tender and compassionate.” ~ Robert Frost

Lost in the blackness of a moonless eve
Darkness envelops; hope scattering on a breeze
But in the midst of heartache, a peace spills into the soul
Memories of past loved ones take control
They glow, flit, and dance with delight
Surrounding the lost in a brilliant light –
A multitude of fireflies pulsing in their fractal rhythm, ne’er alone
Chasing the darkness and guiding the way home
Cicadas burst forth in a musical majestic chorus
Their songs ricocheting off the trees throughout the forest
~S.G.~

“Though she be but little, she is fierce!” A Midsummer Night’s Dream ~ William Shakespeare

Living in the Amazon rainforest can be quite fun yet scary
Camouflaged by the foliage on the forest’s floor, predators stalk their prey
Dangers prowl and accidents happen, night and day
But the courage of three sets a young captive free.
~S.G.~

A collection of six adrenaline-pumping stories by dark fiction author, Jason Thacker. Within the pages of this book you’ll fight against legions of the dead and fierce monsters of myth that roam the mysterious Appalachian forests. From the vicious Mothman prowling for blood, and the Wampus Cat stalking a man in his own backyard, to The Deadin exacting revenge on grave robbers, this compilation will keep you on the edge of your seat until the bitter end.

“Get ready, my avid readers of short horror. Jason Thacker has compiled some bone-chilling tales of frightful delights in his new collection. You’re about to be plunged into some crazy stuff here. Two bony thumbs up from the evil Jester and myself.” ~Charles Day, Bram Stoker Award®-nominated author of THE LEGEND OF THE PUMPKIN THIEF, DEEP WITHIN, and HUNT FOR THE GHOULISH BARTENDER

“Jason Thacker is a horror writer to watch. His prose is smooth, intense, and chilling. If you like horror, you owe it to yourself to check this book out.” ~Eric S. Brown, author of the BIGFOOT WAR series, and co-author of the KAIJU APOCALYPSE series
