“SMankey” probably meant to say “don’t skim.”

Other than [“The Thing That Was Not There” by James Marlow, “Red Velvet” by Shaun Meeks, and “The End of the Trail” by Bentley Little], there are a few others you have to read–in case you’re one of those skimming people:

“The Unknown” by Chris Castle, “The Hung Preacher” by Scott Nicholson, “‘Come Down to the Store, Minerva'” by Earl Hamner, “Wet Birds” by Elizabeth Massie, “The People Eaters” by Christian A. Larsen, “The Cellar” by Tim Jeffreys and “Flame of Freedom” by Aaron J. French.

These ones are all amazing in their own way and can’t be missed.

[After buying SHADOW MASTERS to read Bentley Little and Shaun Meeks] I am now a huge fan of Christian A. Larsen, whom I read the work of in a few other anthologies and now just bought his novel, LOSING TOUCH. This guy can write!

There are also great stories by James Marlow, Aaron J. French, Earl Hamner, Yvonne Navarro and a vivid little story by Tim Jeffreys.

All in all this one is an amazing collection that gives you a wide variety of styles and creeps. Go get it now!
