There's Something Dead in this Houseby Drac Von Stoller

Jack and Brenda Stevens found the perfect home to raise their family in, but were unaware of the homes past. Being a young couple with two children and big dreams, they could care less if the house had a past or not. The only thing on their mind was raising a family in this beautiful Victorian home. The house had a strange odor, but they just thought it was because the house was old. Jack's wife thought once they moved in, and did some renovations, the odor would diminish. She was dead wrong. This was one odor that wouldn't be leaving, even if the place burnt to the ground.
From day one things started happening, like objects being moved, faint screams that seemed to be coming from within the walls, noises from the floorboards of the house. Weeks went by and nothing changed. The family started getting accustomed to the noises and shrugged it off as just the house settling and the fact that it's a very old house. Terror was about to come down on this family like a hurricane.

Don't read this
8 pages of a story that reads as if a third grader wrote it! Oops, that would be rather insulting to third graders. Let's leave it to a 1st grader with ADHD. Should be a free read, or they should be compensating readers for time wasted reading it! Don't waste either your time or money. If you want a good ghost story I recommend anything by Phil Rickman (especially the Merrily Watkins series-a female exorcist) or John Lindqvist.
Really??? Are you fellow readers in the sixth grade or something? Granted Drac has good ideas for stories, but that's where the good ends. All his tales feel like an outline for a "B movie" pitch and at the very best a first very rough draft to a "micro-story". I'm sorry to sound mean, just go take some writting classes, please. Then go back and re-write your 192 shorts. Even my high school aged daughter knows you should not use "open" & "door" or any words for that matter 10 times on one page. There are tools to help you on the web, use them. You are an adult... write like one.
Excellent, twisted short horror story.
Good but shory
Another good but very short story by Drac.
