Publisher's Summary

Behold the Void includes nine stories of terror that huddle in the dark space between cosmic horror and the modern weird, between old-school hard-edged horror of the 1980s and the stylistic prose of today's literary giants.
Revenge takes a monstrous form when a scorned lover acquires bizarre, telekinetic powers; a community swimming pool on a bright summer day becomes the setting for a ghastly nightmare of sacrifice and loss; a thief does bloody battle with a Yakuza for the soul of a horse god; a priest must solve the mystery of a century-old serial killer or risk the apocalypse; a newly-married couple discover that relationships-gone-bad can be poisonous, and deadly; a child is forced to make an ultimate choice between letting his parents die or living with the monsters they may become; and when a boy is trapped on a beach at low tide, he must face death in many forms - that of the rising water coming to consume him and the ghost of his dead mother who wants him back, reaching for him with dark, longing arms....

loved it! i'll for sure revisit this book when some future purchase disappoints; both narrator and author make me jealous with their talent.

Fantastic stories

What did you love best about Behold the Void?

Fracassi has a rich and frighting imagination, reminds me of vintage Stephen King


Who was your favorite character and why?

Fracassi is great at developing memorable characters in a short amount of time. I'd say my favorite was the boy in Mandala, the final story in the collection


Have you listened to any of David Stifel’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not


Who was the most memorable character of Behold the Void and why?

It's a collection of short stories, so there are many characters to choose from. I think the one that stayed with me the most was the lead character in Surfer Girl, it's a terrifying look into the mind of a potential serial killer


Any additional comments?

Highly recommend
