Things that seem too good to be true usually are. Thatís what Chris Jackson and his wife, Heather, discover when they buy a house on the shores of Lake October for a fraction of its market value. Although meant to be a year-round idyll where they can raise their two sons without the encroaching dangers of the inner city, the house becomes more prison than sanctuary when the Jacksons begin hearing stories about a presence known only as The Lady that is said to inhabit Lake October.
Herman Melville said it best when he proclaimed that every path eventually leads to the sea. For it is the sea that holds our most sacred and terrifying fears, yet it also holds a glorious mysticism over us as a race, an attraction so strong that most of us flock to beaches, river banks, creeks, and lakes at every opportunity to stare out into the vast blueness and wonder: what's out there?
Take my hand, Dear Reader, and swim with me through this journey of sixteen tales of watery terror. As we swim, if something reaches out of the darkness and gropes for your ankle, if something pulls you deeper into the depths of liquid madness, if your breath is stolen from you and you find yourself inhaling nothing but muddied water... do not fear, for it is just the ocean reclaiming what is already hers: your soul.
Here is a collection of stories for those of you who shudder at the thought of gulping down one more of Aunt Ida's "famous" cookies, who dread facing another interminable discourse from Uncle Earl about pig farm economics. If the first few notes of "Away in a Manger" cause you to grab something sharp and look around frantically for an eye to stab it in this book was written for you.
Throughout mankind's history, there has always been a fear of the dark and the strange. A terror of things which hide within shadows, and what may emerge from inside them... Perhaps another world brushes against our own, leaving a doorway open for something fantastic and malevolent to enter. Legendary creatures - have they ever existed? And if so, do they still walk the earth, in perpetual twilight, unknown and dangerous?
