Publisher's Summary

Horror lives in the shadows.
It exists under the earth's surface in ancient caves; below the vast sea's undulating waves; under dense forest cover; within a storm's thick, rolling clouds; downstairs in our homes, when we hear the knife drawer rattle in the night. Even our minds and bodies harbour the alien under the skin, the childhood nightmares in our subconscious.
In this collection of 15 tales Karl Drinkwater sews flesh onto the bones of our worst fears whilst revisiting some of horror's classic settings, such as the teen party, the boat in trouble, the thing in the cellar, the haunted museum, the ghost in the machine, and the urban legends that come true. No-one is safe. Darkness hides things, no matter how much we strain our eyes. And sometimes those things are looking back at us.

Spooky but not Scary

While this was certainly a fun collection of short stories, I may hesitate to call them horror. Some were fairly spooky, sure. But none met the level I'd consider necessary for the horror genre. I'd call these spooky suspense stories with some weird twists. If you enjoy some very, very light horror in a short form, this book is for you! If you want real scares, I would recommend looking elsewhere.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

They move below

I received this audiobook in exchange for a honest review.
I liked this! This collection of short stories all contain something that moves below. The stories were good and the narrator did a great job reading. I would read more by this author.
