A series of scaries written by Dan Dillard


For mom,

I think she would have loved this.

And for my wife, Stephanie, whose nightmares wake us both.


This book has been heavily revised because the first time I “published” it, I was impatient and foolish and even at 40+ years old, I haven’t learned to only put my best work up for review. I feel certain there are mistakes left behind, and those are my fault, but I am learning, and I hope I never stop.

Thanks go to everyone in my family, and to the others who helped, laughed, and especially to those who said I couldn’t do it. You know who you are. And thank you to all the nightmares, shared or personal, all the odd and wonderful characters I have met, all the books from people with names like Bradbury, King, and Matheson and some much lesser known…films from those with names like Carpenter, Craven, and Friedkin. To all the newer names who are carrying on the tradition… There are countless others. I hope I do them all proud.
