It's been said if two or more people strongly agree on any one thing, no matter how unlikely, that thing will come to pass. When art lovers and critics alike unanimously acclaim Sam Forbes' monsters in his Dozen Dreadfuls series as real enough to step right off the canvas and into the world, they unwittingly unleash a rash of gory killings and a plague of terror as well. As the only living human who knows what is happening, Sam sets out to make up for the damage his work has caused at the risk of losing his first and best claim to fame. Can he save the world from the horror in time, and what will he have left if he does?

Charlotte Holley's novella, A Dozen Dreadfuls, starts quietly enough with a tramp seeking whatever he can find in the city streets. But then he stumbles on a drug-dealers' quarrel and wonders what to do. Ill-tempered discussion turns suddenly violent in most unexpected ways. Soon newspapers fill with reports of the dead and authorities urge their citizens to stay indoors after dark. Meanwhile critically acclaimed artist, Sam Forbes, reads the news and wonders if the impossible might be true. Perhaps it wasn't such a good idea to invite someone over at night with these monsters on the loose, but Sam ends up walking the scary streets in safety, while author Charlotte Holley creates a haunting atmosphere of guilt and fear behind the carnage. The story's short, a fine lunch-time read if your eating doesn't mind some splashes of gore with that tomato sauce. And lessons are wisely learned in a pleasingly hopeful, and intriguing, ending. I really enjoyed my coffee and sandwiches, with a side-order of scary Halloween fiction. After all, it is October.
