We comfort ourselves with the thought that we will always be able to see danger coming. It’s a pretty lie.
When I was younger, I loved to jump on branches. There was just something satisfying in the way they cracked.
One day, I was walking with a friend through a field. It was around twilight, when I spotted this long, perfectly straight branch. Of course, I sprinted for it. I was a second away from stomping down with all my strength when my friend yanked me back. He was so scared that I didn’t even question why we were running until we were back at the farmhouse.
It hadn’t been a branch.
My dumb little self was about to jump on the back of a huge venomous snake. I’m alive today because he had been there to see the threat I missed.
This volume is about people who didn’t have someone to tell them it’s not a branch. A woman discovers a mirror that foretells tragedy. Campers are hunted by mysterious creatures. A man finds that stealing a magic book has drastic consequences. And we return to Kramer Street alongside a medium oblivious of the dangers lurking there.
So cozy up, dear reader, and explore a world where evil roams free and a single mistake can cost a life.
But don’t let these stories distract you too much.
Around here, you need to keep your wits about you.
Terror in the Shadows Volume 18 is now available on Amazon, priced at 99c for a limited time only!
