Description: From the author of "The Missing Boatman" and "The Bear That Fell From The Stars," comes a novella of short horror fiction. Four tales best read at night, during a storm, and all alone in the house.
Eat–– Ricky "The Juggernaut" Mobera is a woman chasing, eating champion. He is on top of his game, and seemingly unstoppable in the world of competitive eating. That is, until he enters the one competition, where the ultimate prize is life.
Expansion–– In Wolfville, Nova Scotia, all electricity dies at the same moment in time. What begins as a history lesson on world wars, quickly escalates into something more, where no one will survive.
Ye Old Fishing Hole–– Driven by financial woes, a father travels to a pond in remote wilderness, hidden from civilization. He seeks to make a pact, a deal, to solve all of his monetary troubles. The only thing he must do is drop a hook, and land the biggest catch of them all.
The Hospital–– Augustus Berry is a survivor in undead suburbia. He scavenges what he can from what's left over. He is very careful in what he does and where he goes, taking no chances, no unnecessary risks, and weighing every choice... until he decides to visit the hospital at the edge of town, and experiences terror the likes he's never encountered before.
Reviews: "This is a great book - a collection of 4 short stories each of which have a twist near the end. I liked Eat the best (the first story). Ye Olde Fishing Hole is a well-written character portrait featuring a battle between a man and .. something .. Worth a read - entertaining, fun, and memorable."
