typewriter-hfsArgh! My writers group is killing me. I’ve been pounding away at a short story and since about the 5,000 word mark I’ve been saying it’s too big – that this is a novel. No, they tell me, just get the story out. Now here I am past the 9,000 word mark and have to go back, pad the beginning with a few thousand words before I can continue.

It’s a novel. See, I knew it.





Edited by Henry Snider THE HORROR SOCIETY offers you... ...a trio of teens that discover not only houses can be haunted... ...a buried and all-but-forgotten Civil War era prison whose dark cells house more than antiques for treasure hunters... ...lovers who chance upon a southwestern cave containing the resting place of a pharaoh entombed far from home... ...a fire tower offering visitors views beyond belief and platform levels which never seem to end... ...abandoned train tracks leading a family to a century-old murder scene... These nightmares and more await you just around the corner in FORGOTTEN PLACES.
