About the eBook:
A college freshman finds herself stranded in Arizona with no place to stay and nowhere to run.
Cabin fever closes in on an isolated park ranger, as two sinister beauties lurk in the desert outside his door.
A California divorcee is starting a promising new life. But her young son knows better—because he's seen what's creeping outside the window.
A cross-country traveler is on a journey of self-discovery. But one tourist trap holds its own dreadful surprises...
Four strangers with one thing in common: a mysterious train choking the sky with black smoke, charging trackless across the American night... and carrying an unstoppable evil, raised from the bowels of history, that will bring their worst fears to life.
Bentley Little was born in Arizona a month after his mother attended the world premiere of Psycho. He received his BA in Communications and MA in English and Comparative Literature at California State University Fullerton. His Master's thesis was the novel The Revelation, which was later published and won the Bram Stoker Award in 1991. Since then, he has written many more novels and his work has been translated into seven different languages. Several of his novels have been optioned for film.
His work has appeared in many issues of Cemetery Dance magazine, including Cemetery Dance #64, which was the Bentley Little Special Issue and featured an original interview with him and two of his brand new short stories.
When asked in that issue why he writes horror, he answered: "I write horror because I have to. That's the way my mind works. Those are the ideas that come to me. I've never felt limited by the genre. How could I? Horror fiction offers an author the broadest possible canvas on which to work. I have all of the real-world subjects at my disposal that a mainstream writer does—plus the infinite realm of the supernatural. Creatively, there's nothing else that comes close to this sort of scope, which is why there is nothing I would rather be than a horror writer."
