A few years back, FRIGHT friend and writer Sean Keller had told me of his ambitious plan to spend a year composing a collection of horror short stories. The way he broke it down to me was that he’d do one story per month and then in theory by the end of the year have 12 new stories. Instead, he ended up exceeding his goal with 14 shorts and I had the pleasure of editing the 14 stories into a book format. While the complete collection is yet to be made available, a few wonderful nuggets have indeed slipped through the cracks and into the public. You have to crafty if you want to hunt them down… or better yet, we can just tell ya where to find ’em! For $1, you can check out COME RIDE THE NIGHT WIND, a Halloween themed story in which a thirteen year old boy gets mistaken for the ghosts and ghouls that wander the streets on the one night when the barrier between the living and the dead is at its thinnest.
And now, another story BUNNYMAN, a radical take on how a budding, successful serial killer fits into the Bunnyman legend (crossed with a tad of inspiration from BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON) has made it’s debut in the collection LEGENDS OF URBAN HORROR: A FRIEND OF A FRIEND TOLD ME. The book feature contributions from Lisamarie Lamb, K. Trap Jones, Kimberly A. Bettes, C.M. Saunders, Morgan Bauman, Austin Fikac, Matthew Borgard, Alex Chase, Jon Olson and was edited by Gloria Bobrowicz. But I’m telling you FRIGHT fans, it’s worth it alone for Sean Keller’s shocking story BUNNYMAN. (Wait ’til you read how it ends!)
There’s multiple ways to own it:
