    The next Stephen King!

    A dastardly good collection of creepy short stories. From spine-chilling spookiness to outright fright, these horror stories are some of the best on the market today. If you typically enjoy classic ghost stories with a twist, you'll be on pins and needles just waiting for Burt's next collection of horror to hit bookstores. FIVE
