Demons are all around us. Hatred, greed, old age, addiction. Some of them are more tangible with claws, fangs and dark intentions. Face your demons before they take over. They're only as frightening as you allow. A collection of short horror stories for grown-ups with non-traditional twists and a bit of dark humor.

DEMONS AND OTHER INCONVENIENCES By Dan Dillard Demons, vampires, and things that go bump in the night. What scares you? Is something the future may hold? Is it a murderer of innocent children? What about the old woman living alone down the street? All of these and more can be found in the short stories contained in DEMONS AND OTHER INCONVENIENCES. Dan Dillard has quite the imagination and has some great stories here. Some of my favorite stories in the collection include AMBER ALERT about a child that's gone missing in a small town and the horrifying realization of who is actually responsible; UNLUCKY IN DEATH about a newly-turned vampire who faints at the sight of blood; NEVER JUDGE A BOOK about Jack who runs into some pretty scary creatures on his walk home-this is a funny one, too; and MY MIND'S EYE about what goes through the mind of a potential killer. Other notable stories include THE TRASH MENAGERIE which takes an interesting look at hoarding; PIG MAN about what a little girl sees in the middle of the night-quite terrifying; THE DEMON OF WALKER'S WOODS about the imaginations of a group of small-town children one summer; and ANTICIPATION about someone just waiting to die at the hands of others-and the surprise of "who" it is. Overall, there isn't a bad story in the collection. I look forward to reading more from Dan Dillard in the future.
