Received this frightful ebook through Adam's newsletter. Enjoyed the 3 short stories, but my favorite was Florrie. Highly recommend this intro to Adam's Some Will Not Sleep. If you sleep after reading, you may have nightmares...
This book is about 50ish pgs. The stories were okay, but could have been explained better. *** spoiler the 1st story was good, but why did people contact Nan ? Why would she think they were angels? Why wasn't the place torn down w/that many missing kids?? 2nd story, what were the packages to the ancestors? 3rd story why didn't his parents check on him ? Why didn't his friend call the police?
