All right, you got me at Jeff - SPOILERS

Yep, I missed Jeff on those last two pages. That is corrected with the latest draft I uploaded to Smashwords (which should arrive at B&N by the end of the month). As readers may guess, Lee was originally named Jeff.

Yep, I missed Jeff on those last two pages. That is corrected with the latest draft I uploaded to Smashwords (which should arrive at B&N by the end of the month). As readers may guess, Lee was originally named Jeff.

Abandoned happens to be one of my favorite short stories. Devon is recycled from the story Bloody Tannenbaum - in which readers, who more familiar with my storytelling scheme, hopefully recognize. That's why he's talking about demonic trees. More about that is in my short story Carnivorous Blight.

SPOILERS - For readers looking to "see" something in the haunted house, I'm sorry you are disappointed. The COLD is the monster, it's there all along. I should have called the story "The Living Cold," but that's not as catchy as Abandoned.

Don't bother

Very short story, not very well written, feels more like a poem than a story.

    Umm

    This book was not very good. It was way to short and it should have had way more details. It could have been alot better.

    Not too good of a book.

    This book had no real premise. It was boring and very short. Nothing exciting happened. Plus, it had bad language. I would NOT reccomend this book.
