Monsters: A Halloween Short Story
by Stewart O'Nan
About the eBook:
They were going to be monsters for the Church haunted house—Creatures from the Black Lagoon. Mark and his best friend Derek would each get to wear a suit with a zipper up the back and a head that fit like a diving helmet. They could scare the little kids and gross out the girls. No one would know who they were. But a backyard accident will ensure this Halloween is even more memorable than the young boys expect, and their friendship will never be the same…
"A quietly brilliant story with its own singular darkness."
—Paula Guran, The Year's Best Dark Fantasy and Horror
