Screaming In The Night: Sinister Supernatural Stories Volume 1


Beware of the night, for it shows no mercy. Your pulse quickens as the last sprinklings of light twinkle out on the inky horizon. Sweat beads at your temples when ominous shadows dance their choreography in the damp, dusky air. Night is taking over, and it knows how to keep a dark and deadly secret, for it allows no witnesses.
