As part of my celebrating of the season I recently read this excellent horror novel by Brian James Freeman and Norman Prentiss. It tells a short and clever tale of madness and murder during the month of monsters that I found hard to put down. Well crafted and creepy it is exactly the right kind of scary tale for you if you're looking for something to get under your skin! I highly recommend it.
"The accommodations at Stillbrook Apartments aren't exactly glamorous, but they're quiet, affordable, and well-maintained. The handyman is usually available to help with a leak or a broken bulb, his wife and two adorable kids often tagging along. When occasion dictates, the neighbors gather to wish each other well and spread the requisite holiday cheer. Everything's very nice. Very normal.
But as Halloween approaches, strange occurrences are happening all around Stillbrook. The children tell disturbing stories, bizarre noises bleed through the walls, and one abandoned unit is found to be inhabited by something sinister—something that's no longer alive."
