Overview

Business as usual down at Dracs Funeral Home and Cemetery so they say but there was one thing wrong with this picture Dracs Funeral Home and Cemetery hasn't been in operation since old man Wethers Funeral Home and Cemetery was shut down because a brand new funeral home and cemetery was built across the street from Dracs Funeral Home and cemetery.
People would make fun of Dracs Funeral Home because it was small and musty inside and the cemetery wasn't well kept either. This really made old man Wethers upset so the old man was forced to shut the funeral home down. Dracs Funeral Home was the only one in town so there was no other funeral home to bury their loved ones.
One day when old man Wethers was cleaning one of the tombstones at Dracs Funeral Home a hearse came speeding by and ran right over old man Wethers killing him instantly. Old man Wethers didn't stand a chance at avoiding the situation. The police never caught the killer because there were no eye witnesses and all that was left at the scene were tire tracks and no vehicle.
Old man Wethers death would not go unpunished. The old man was coming back from the grave to kill his competition.

Meet the Author

Drac Von Stoller's imagination and fascination for the Horror genre began when he was a little boy watching his favorite actors such as Vincent Price, Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee and Bela Lugosi on his little black and white television alone in his dark room. Drac would watch these horror movies for hours and build model kits of his favorite characters like Dracula, the Wolfman, Frankenstein and even the Munster's car from his favorite television series. Then as time went on and nothing was left to the imagination in the new horror movies, Drac still loved watching the old movies he so loved as a little boy. Then as Drac became an adult he decided one day that he would write a short story in the horror genre and let some of his friends read it and see what they thought. Drac's first short story was titled "Death in the Wilderness," which would be considered flash fiction but this would be Drac's test to see if he was destined to be an author. Sure enough when people read "Death in the Wilderness" they loved it but couldn't understand why Drac didn't keep on with the story but Drac knew all along that if what they read was so good then Drac has succeeded. This gave Drac the confidence he needed to keep on writing more and more short stories. The rest is history Drac has now written 124 short stories to date that have been downloaded in over 60 Countries and more on the way..Drac Von Stoller's short stories have been downloaded over 89,276 times through Smashwords distributor's, Amazon, Google and other sites.

I have to say that the appearance of the book is pleasing. It's well designed and lightweight so there's no anxiety about getting through a thick novel. Some stories to recommend (my faves) are "Visit from the Greys" "Phantom Miner" " The Dead Sea Captain" and "Death in the Wilderness".

    Okay

    This story had potential. But, it was repetitive and redundant. The same words or phrases were used again and again, often in the same sentence. There were too many run-on sentences and other grammar issues. Although, this story was better than other tales written by the author.

    A note to the author:

    Keep writing. You are getting better at it. This short story has a beginning, a middle, and an end, while previous stories were lacking in these essential writing elements. Just remember that an author needs to include an introduction (includes a description of the setting and main chatacter), a central conflict in the middle, and a conclusion (a wrap-up of all loose ends, and conflict resolution). A tidy ending brings the story around full-circle. Best of luck to you!

    Short...

    This is a very short story that seems to be lacking. There were several grammatical errors. It was very choppy and often repeated. This could easily be a great short with some polishing.

    Definitely has potential, but rather disjointed and choppy.

    I don't like giving bad reviews on any book or author. Everyone has their own opinion. This book only has 8 pages, but I thought it had potential.

    Okay...

    If you look past the grammatical errors and run-on sentences the story is okay.
