“The Patrol”

Synopsis of my story:
A soldier dreads the solitude of a foxhole while the patrol spies on the enemy. All is quiet until a peculiar visitor surprises him. (This story first appeared in THESE OLD TALES)


Welcome to the dreaded night realm… lingering just beneath your eyelids, where the hellish things borne of fear eagerly await your arrival. Prepare to be whiplashed to the darkest regions of 32 wicked minds, and forced to stare into their collective abyss. This world is chock-full of the stuff dreams are made of, but more than likely, if you find yourself in the minds of one of these authors, you’ll awaken to a nightmare. This fear you’re experiencing is like a virus, it will spread to every inch of your body, sending not only a chill down your spine but reaching into the very depths of your soul… You’ll journey to the darkest corners of these author’s minds, as you confront the living, breathing entity that is fear.
