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.

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". I don't leave reviews but something about this one so check it out!5.0 out of 5 stars for kicks., February 12, 2012Christy C.

It starts off in a weird third-person point of view that completely ruins the story before it even begins. It is overly predictable and not at all frightening or enjoyable. The storyteller rambles on and on about re-telling a really scary story that isn't. All of the potential suspense and interest is lost by the end of the first page. This short story is more like a bad campfire story that somebody heard from their third-cousin's-friend's-brother-in-law who, then, forgot the punch line. My point, do not bother spending your time on this one, even if it is only 6 Nook pages long. What a waste of time, I will never get my five minutes back. Other stories by this author are not as bad. But avoid this one. -AvidReader
