Werewolves… vampires… swamp beasts… zombies… even a Jersey Devil… all of these chilling creatures and more await you in this haunting collection of 11 contemporary horror fiction stories by Mark Wesley Curran.
Uniquely set ‘down the shore’ in South Jersey’s Cape May County, these scary tales are
sure to terrify and entertain both adult readers as well as young adults.


There was no doubt among the sisters that the murders were increasing their power. Each felt
the surge of energy that coursed through them with each kill.
“I feel so alive!” Zoey exclaimed on the morning after they’d tied Harlan Clemmons to a chair and stabbed him multiple times through the heart, “like I’m plugged into some bitchin’ electrical source!” she marveled.


The other girls felt it too. Both Jaz and Ali would lay awake at night and feel it running through them – bringing them even more vitality and strength than even their young ages provided.

    the cover is just fantastic and I really like short horror stories. Full length books sometimes are a little too much!

  6. We vacationed in Wildwood every other year when I was a child, do this book would be extra interesting to me. :)

      I love to read books set in places I’ve been to or lived in. Makes it exciting to see what I will recognize. The same goes for movies. We get a lot of them filmed in our area. Have one being done down the road from where I work right now.
