Book & Author Details:
13 Dark Tales – Collection 2 by Michael R. Martin
Publication date: June 13th 2019
Genres: Horror, Occult, Short Stories
A headless corpse dumped in a field leads to a terrifying insight into the future, a UFO investigator gets more than he bargained for when he tracks down an eyewitness, and bank robbers find something in a safe-deposit box they wish they hadn’t.
Just three of the 13 Dark Tales, many inspired by macabre urban myths and sinister folklore, in this second collection by Michael R Martin.
Read them in the dark hours when they might call to mind a disturbing story you can’t quite place or a strange shape glimpsed from the corner of your eye; things you dismissed as too fantastic to take seriously but left nagging doubts, nonetheless.
Some of them may be true.
How do you like your scary stories? If you like something a little more subtle, where the scare is more like something glimpsed out of the corner of your eye that confronted full on, then this will likely be right up your street.
