Publisher's Summary

Three stories which explore the darker side of the world of books.
In a style reminiscent of the old Twilight Zone television show, these three tales will take the book-loving listener to a place that is somewhat familiar yet frighteningly surreal and disturbing.

A short, entertaining listen

Three short stories, each will leave you thinking after you listen. The first one, Active Reader, just made me cringe in a way that you do when you see a scene in a horror movie, but still love it. Browser, the second was my favorite of the three. It is reminiscent of a Twilight Zone episode and makes you think before ever not finishing a book! And Distraction was just disturbing in a way that you can't help but relate(and of course not take the same actions!). Mark Leslie is an author that I will definitely seek more of, I love the kind of books that peek your interest and leave you with an intelligent, well thought out story.

The choice of Eric Bryan Moore for the narration of this anthology is brilliant. EBM has a voice that can create that air of mystique and horror, making you crawl into the mind of the characters and feel their emotions. He did a spectacular job with these three short stories.

3 Short Stories

Typically I stay away from horror stories, but I was pulled into this book by the superb narration. Eric Bryan Moore did a fantastic performance. The 1st story in the book had a creepy feeling, the second was really good and the 3rd was disturbing. I would definitely listen to the narrator again, but probably would stay away from the horror genre as romance is my love.
