With the influences of King and Barker, Jerry McKinney lets loose his imagination upon the world. A normal man with a demented mind.

The is a set of six short stories. The beginning story is the original draft of the end story, and Jerry's first foray into the writing business.
A great story collection! It is quite unusual to read an anthology that has no bad stories, but this is it. Every single story was a master-crafted roller-coaster of a tale. I particularly liked the idea of including the two drafts of The Feed and Feed. you could see how much Jerry's writing has grown in the 18 months between the two stories. Each story in this anthology started off one way and kept you guessing until the shocker of a climax. The mark of a good story to me is one that makes you think 'What the hell just happened???'. All of these are just that and more.

Open this gravely horrific tomb, I mean tome, if you dare!!!
These six frightful tales provide everything from a serial killer to uncommon vampires, werewolves, and ghosts. Nothing about these stories will lead you down a familiar path. Although the early works of author Jerry W. McKinney, they do not lack in quality or prowess. From the original brief version of "Feed" through the twisting and writhing of his creepy visions, culminating in the long version of his vampire masterpiece, we can see the natural storytelling ability of a true horror artiste unfold. He is proof that a gifted writer is born and can simply begin to create when the time is right. Here you will find the first strokes of magic conjured by Jerry W. McKinney's special touch, his natural way with words and sense of description, a style that will get into your mind and toy with your perceptions. Some of these images may keep you up at night. Others might give you bad dreams. A few of them will crawl into your brain and never leave.
