Overview

From the mind of Christopher Hawkins come three tales to tingle the spine and chill the soul:

A Candle for the Birthday Boy
Nate's son is turning eight, and his stepmother is throwing him a party. It's a welcome surprise, especially in light of her usual hostility. But when the birthday boy can't be found, Nate notices the heavy pinata tied at the edge of the yard, and begins to wonder what's inside.

The Night Runner
Grace lives to run free through the streets and alleys of the city in the dead of night. Now a shadowy figure has come to the city, her city, bringing death in his wake. Will she be fast enough to stop him before he kills again, or will he be the one to catch her first?

Carpenter's Thumb
A missed swing and the crack of a nail raise up a bruise on a roofer's thumb in the shape of an eye. Strange dreams begin to haunt his sleep, but when he wakes up to blood and the bodies start to fall, he starts to realize that he no longer controls the hand that holds the hammer.

Christopher Hawkins was encouraged one too many times at an early age, and has been writing ever since. As a child, he devoured the work of Ray Bradbury, H. P. Lovecraft and Stephen King, which made it inevitable that he would find his calling writing horror. In his work he is always searching for the unusual that lies just beneath the ordinary, crafting tales made to shock and horrify.

His short fiction has appeared in Sinister Tales, Murky Depths, and The Harrow, as well as in the anthologies Read By Dawn vol 2, and Shadow Regions.

An expatriate Hoosier, Christopher currently lives in a suburb of Chicago with his wife and two sons.
