Overview

On a lonely desert road, a woman hears the voice of her dead child calling out to her, but no one is near.

Across the country, a psychic tells a bereaved mother that her child lives, though she believed him to be lost in the wreckage of a car crash many years ago. And one day on a playground, a ten-year-old girl glimpses the image of her deceased twin brother, beckoning to her.

As three grieving families find themselves haunted by the voices of their dead children, they come to learn that their children are not dead, as they believed, but have been taken and hidden away at a remote compound, to be used for a single, lethal purpose.

To find their children and discover the truth, the parents embark on treacherous journeys that will take them to the very heart of evil, where three frightened children are crying out for help. Can they save them before their innocence becomes a weapon for deadly psychic evil?

PRAISE:
"Hear the Children Calling is a tension-filled tale that pits parents against seemingly unconquerable opponents. Driven by their love for the children, these individuals are determined to face skepticism and even death to find and rescue their missing offspring—children held hostage by a staggering conspiracy that requires a direct physical confrontation to be defeated. An unusual work of eerie power,Hear the Children Calling is an engrossing horror/thriller that is decidedly different." —Rave Reviews (Four-star review)

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
With signs of summer popping up all around like crocuses, patrons will soon be looking for books to tote along on vacation. Perhaps better suited for reading aloud around the campfire than at the beach, this collection of short horror stories features established classics by writers such as Conan Doyle, Poe, and Robert Bloch, as well as modern tales by D.R. Meredith and Sharyn McCrumb. Editor Greenburg, who won the 1989 Milford Award for lifetime achievement in science fiction, is among the best short story anthologists around, having put together over 200 of them, so this is bound to be a crowd pleaser. For those who can't get enough of a good scare, more startling goings on can be found in Claire McNally's Hear the Children Calling (June. ISBN 0-7278-4153-X. $19.95) and Andrew Neiderman's Perfect Little Angels (July. ISBN 0-7278-4150-5. $17.95), both also available from Severn House.-- Michael Rog ers, ``Library Journal''
