    A short read but creepy as hell

    The story isn't very long, but it really piles on the dread. I don't want to say too much for fear of spoiling the effect, so just dim the lights and read it.

    good idea but unfinished

    peekers is about a retiree who is asked over to a friend's house to verify what his friend is seeing. This could have been really creepy, but we're just not given enough info to care. Its really short and not a total wait of time, you're just left feeling like it's incomplete.

    This was a good short story. It t was just way to short. It felt as if there should be more added to it. Other than that, it was a good read.
