Please don't read it if you don't enjoy horror! Also, if your parents did not allow you to go to horror movies a s a child, this may not be a book you should read. Also, if you are prone to nightmares, don't read this book: 1.at night when you are alone. 2.If you believe in ghosts, goblins, or the Loch Ness monster. 3.during the full moon, particularly when the wolfbane blooms. 4.around a campfire after dark in a dense forest. 5.if the news reported that a deranged maniac has escaped from the local asylum. 6.if you think something from another planet has landed on earth. 7.if limbs being hacked off make you queasy. 9.during a lightning storm where your home could be plunged into total darkness. But if you like to walk through graveyards after midnight, or visit haunted houses on Halloween, or explore dilapidated, defunct insane asylums, or play scary music in the dark when you are alone, enjoy the horror if you dare. If you really want to feel creepy, you might want to read this book with life-size monster mannequins sitting around you like Charles Royster did in my story, The Clown at Midnight. Hopefully, you will fare better than he did as you journey into the unknown. So, take the plunge and feel the terror that waits just beyond the door in spaces where the subtle shades of black are imperceptible in the gloom. In a forest where the silence is so profound it suggests the awakening of an enormous beast from a long sleep with a mission to rip apart any bird, animal, or insect that dares make a sound. In a tomb where the children of the night seek fresh, warm blood, and the wind howls and the wolf bane blooms under the full moon. Into fields of sorrow where scarecrows walk, monsters crawl and awful things go bump in the night. Go to those creepy places you never thought you'd go where the whisper of a spider's web lingers on the back of your neck too long. and the icy fingers of something dead send shivers up your spine that makes your blood run cold.
