E. R. Robin Dover’s “The Trees” (horror):
In a remote desert region of southwestern New Mexico, centered along the Rio Grande, is an ancient grove of trees permeated with an evil that has always existed. In silence, it screams out to be touched – and does so with one mind. It calls out for the succulent meat within its shells to be consumed. When the time is right, it gives up its fruit – spreading influence and forbidden knowledge – disseminating control found only in a very special evil.... Joel Johnson made sacrifices that changed the Grove. But Joel has also changed. He is deeply in love with this forest of darkness, witnessing things no one else has seen. He feels them absorbing and consuming him. And he likes it.

A diverse collection of short stories, ranging from Horror to Science Fiction. A couple were only mildly interesting, but most were very well written and entertaining.The narrator did a good job.

A well read mixed bag of stories
I was impressed with some of the stories, some of the others fell a little short. On balance though it was an enjoyable read.
This book was rescued however by some really good narration, I would happily listen to this man again.
