The settings at first seem innocuous enough: a quiet corner bar, an elementary school, a party at a mansion, a stream overshadowed by majestic magnolia trees. But lurking in the shadows are monsters....
With these three new stories, Atlanta-based writer Will Kenyon demonstrates for us that monsters come in all shapes and colors. They can be the manifestation of loves lost, coming back to haunt us. They can be amorphous entities that drive us down paths we know we should avoid. They can be well-meaning children, blinded by prejudices and directed by forces they cannot see or comprehend. However they appear, they are terrible, terrible to behold.
Here are three tales of terror, each with its own monster. They are, though, more than mere horror stories, for Will Kenyon imbues each story and its respective monster, with meaning and power that stays with us, even after the horror has passed.
