You'll never look at birth quite the same after reading Joel Arnold's 'Fetal Position and Other Stories'.
With seventeen tales (and two poems) of horror, suspense, and terror, you'll find:
A high-wire act from Hell.
A children's game gone terribly wrong.
A man whose work for the Khmer Rouge returns to haunt him.
A car's turn signal controlled from beyond the grave.
A student's bizarre homework assignment.
A woman's macabre method of dealing with bill collectors.
After reading these, plus eleven other stories, you may just want to curl up in your own fetal position, and pray the nightmares never come.
