These fifteen short tales of terror were contributed by eight different authors in order to Fight the Monster that is Multiple Sclerosis. Proceeds from the sale of this book support finding a cure for MS.
I will skip talking about my own contributions and leave that to other reviewers, but I will say that the other tales in this little tome are VERY worth the time, and not only that, but all proceeds go to an excellent cause. If you are wanting “feel good” horror, skip the introductory tale. That story alone was worth this book and perhaps the most chilling tale I have read.
The audio version is a highlight reel of excellent talent and really displays the amazing narrators that make up the Falcon Sound team.
