Murmurs In The Night
by Les Pobjie
Terrors await in the night. The ordinary becomes strange, mundane becomes unbelievable, normality flips into horror and life abruptly slips towards death — or worse.
Murmurs in the Night is a collection of stories about people — good and evil — coping with disturbing incidents that often begin with the commonplace...
A driver alone at night on a highway is puzzled when his radio switches off by itself; a woman walking home through a park looks back and sees the loudly argumentative couple behind her is just one person; a family dinner is disrupted when mum shouts out garbled words in a strange voice; a man walks out of his bathroom after a nocturnal visit to see an unknown old woman sitting up in his bed; a placid cat fights viciously to avoid being put out at night, a flimsily dressed woman walks in the cold rain, trying to make herself sick; a strange old man puts Christmas ''darks'' up on his house, with dire consequences for some townsfolk.
Ten stories of unusual — often scary, rarely funny — events when the everyday abruptly shifts into another, disturbing reality.
Enter if you dare — and be entertained.
A natural inheritor of the crown first forged by the great Roald Dahl
