Whispered Echoes
by Paul F. Olson

About the Book:
An ancient voice speaks from the depths of a long-forgotten cave...

As a violent storm rages overhead, the scratching sounds begin in the cellar below...

A man inherits the family talent, but what price does that legacy demand...?

A return to the family homestead brings overwhelming memories, but the darkest memory of all still waits in the ravine out back...

An unassuming tourist quietly strolls through town, leaving devastation in his wake...

A late-night call from an abandoned camp brings a frightened cop face-to-face with his darkest fears...

A wild joyride ends with a surprise reunion and an encounter with the impossible...

A man searches for answers at an abandoned lighthouse and uncovers an unspeakable past...

Listen closely. You can hear them. The whispered echoes of your darkest fears. In this stunning new collection, Paul F. Olson delves into the quiet heart of terror. Featuring eleven long out-of-print tales from the '80s and '90s, and the debut of "Bloodybones," a brand new novella of loss, longing, and chilling horror. With a foreword by Chet Williamson and an introduction by the author, Whispered Echoes abounds with subtle shivers that linger long after the last page is turned.
