Overview

When her parents take a trip to a funeral, a young woman must conquer the Night Frights that have terrorized her since she was a child. She faces her biggest challenge as she is poised to leave the wretched place behind once and for all. Not your typical likable protagonist, Gillian is whiny and needy and self-centered from living in the shadow of a creepy old windmill. All she wants at this point is to escape. Will the creatures that haunt the windmill release her, or is she doomed to remain in their thrall? A suspenseful chiller, "Macabre" reminds us of childhood fears that caused us to hide beneath our covers and shiver at the thought of those things that go bump in the night.

Editorial Reviews

Robin Edman
What amazing pacing! I think I was panting a little the entire time that I was reading this long short story. The story is ostensibly about the Night Terrors, those nasty things that well up as the shadows rise, but it's really a coming of age story.
Vix Kirkpatrick
