After reading (and very much enjoying) his novel 'Catch Up To Myself', I wanted to check out this Halloween-themed short story by author Todd Croak-Falen. It did not disappoint! Excellent writing; a spooky, spooky narrative. Might keep you up for a few hours during the night you decide to get into it...but for those like to be scared, consider it well worth it.

The short time I spent reading this wild ride of a story is nothing compared to the time I spent contemplating its contents and the fear, the chill, the overall thrilling sensation that I was left with when I was finished. The author lures you in from the very first sentence from a first-person perspective and you are ushered along on a tense and fearful ride that lingers long after the story... ends? Definitely worth the read and now I'm intrigued enough by Croak-Falen's writing to check out his book "Catch Up To Myself."

This is one of the most effective Halloween-themed short stories I've ever read. Not only does it have an engaging (and unsettling) plot, but it also features a truly novel use of the first-person that makes the writing come nightmarishly to life. The ending--which I wouldn't dare spoil--really kicked me in the gut. Highly recommended for anyone in the mood for a macabre page-turner.

This is a genuinely spooky story that will pull you right in! It's bizarre and surreal and completely avoids cliche. A totally different style from Todd Croak-Falen's novel Catch Up To Myself, but every bit as good.

Now that was spooky! This rather disturbing tale has left me literally speechless. Maybe I'm weird, but I really liked it!

Just look at the cover of this book, does that say nightmares or what? And I was just crazy enough to read it before bed with my Kindle being the only light in the room!

This was a perfect story to read for Halloween. The author does a fabulous job with descriptions! I felt as if I were part of the story as it reminded me of being a child out trick or treating. I am just glad that I never had contact with the druggist.

I highly recommend this to anyone who likes creepy, rather dark, scary, nightmarish short stories! This is a story that will play with your mind since I am afraid to turn over and make sure sleeping hubby doesn't have a top hat on his head! *screams*

Not for the queasy, or the faint of heart. Perfect for a quick Halloween read.

This is a short, suspenseful, and haunting type of story which is rather disturbing--but isn't that what spooky thrillers are supposed to be? Very well written and edited. It makes the reader feel a lot of emotions.

Would I recommend it? Yes, but not for the young reader. Would I re-read it? Are you kidding? As good as it was, once was enough to give me the creeps!

I read Todd Croak Falen's novel "Catch up to Myself" and enjoyed it a lot, so when I heard that he published a short story I was really excited. "The Druggist" is a fantastic and creepy story that haunted my spirits for a few days. Definitely worth purchasing!
