Overview

One Buck Horror presents five chilling tales from five of today's most up-and-coming horror authors.

"Jenny's House" is a great place to play, but an unexpected playmate makes for a dark session of show-and-tell.

Three kids seek to steal from a traveling carnival and get more than they bargained for in "A Lullaby for Caliban"

In "The Last Nephew", Nephew yearns to be free of Uncle's depredations, but when Uncle leaves his pocket watch behind one night, it gives him the key to his escape.

Crossing "The Cornfield" is harrowing on the best of winter nights, but this night, Jack turns to see eyes in the darkness, and knows that something is following him...

In "The Ginger Men", mother is baking a special ingredient into a treat for father, an ingredient that gives her pie dough a life of its own.

Featuring stories by Ada Hoffmann, Julie Jansen, Mark Onspaugh, Mike Trier, and Elizabeth Twist.

    Check out this great collection of horror stories!!

    In "Jenny's House" by Ada Hoffman, a young child's enthusiasm for Show and Tell takes a twisted turn when he tells about how his doll became covered with green slime and what happened over at a little girl's house.

    "A Lullaby for Caliban" by Mark Onspaugh follows three young boys sent to a carnival sideshow on a club initiation dare to bring home a "pickled punk" -- a club name for a fetus in a jar of formaldehyde. But when the glass jar with the punk falls and breaks, two of the boys run off leaving their friend Kirby to face the consequences.

    With the help of a young street urchin, trapped spirits take their revenge upon the "Uncle" who forced them into servitude in Elizabeth Twist's "The Last Nephew".

    A young boy's darkest fears come to life as he tries to escape a monster while crossing "The Cornfield", in a story by Mike Trier.

    Georgie's mother is trying a new gingerbread recipe thanks to a special ingredient from one of her neighbors, something she says will help his ailing father. When Georgie accidentally discovers what the special ingredient does, will he be able to help his father, or will he be next? Read Julie Jansen's story "The Gingerbread Men" to find out.

    I enjoyed all the stories, especially "The Last Nephew". The story revealed itself slowly, allowing the shocks to gradually sink in so that the ending packs a heck of a punch. "The Cornfield" left me a little confused about the young protagonist's older brother, but it's still a creepy tale filled with a fantastic monster and enough gore to keep me happy.

    This is a great collection of tales, each one immediately grabbing you with horrific visions and worse, just enough details to allow your imagination to fill in the rest. Definitely a collection for any and all horror fans to enjoy.

    The return of the Creature Feature!

    This volume features five scary stories by various authors. Each tale brings spine-chilling, brain candy for the horror enthusiast.

    I was hard pressed to pick a favorite. Each story brought it's own unique, fresh and fun perspective on horror. At times I thought of the Creature Feature shows of old, and with them in print, rather than on film, I can imagine something horrid to my heart's delight.

    I eagerly await Volume 2...

    Fun Read, Loved It!

    Nice variety of short stories: some hair raising, some raising questions, and some kept me on the edge of my seat. I was very happy with it, to the point of being disappointed when I finished it. I really can't wait until the next issue of One Buck Horror, it's so much fun for so little cash!!!
