NOOK Book (eBook)
$3.99 price


Little Selene was bored. And then came the mysterious

Toyman, carrying a very special toybox, filled with wonders

and terrors beyond imagination. As Selene peered into the

toybox, the stories tumbled out: a quiet little girl whose

horrible secret bursts forth at a Halloween party ... a

doll made of corn that hides a very nasty surprise ... a

depraved celebration for the last vampire ... All of these

and many more awaited Selend - and now they wait for you -

inside the toybox. Go ahead, open it, if you dare.

Toybox is the first ever collection of stories by horror

master Al Sarrantonio, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of

more than twenty novels and editor of the landmark horror

anthology 999. Toybox itself was nominated for an

International Horror Guild Award for best collection.

    Al Sarrantonio is clearly one of today's most talented writers.

    Sarrantonio is my favorite short story writer. he inspires me to write, i love his style and his endings. This book has his best stories, my favorites being Pumpkin Head, Dust, and...oh hell they're all terrific.
