Long story short, read Prunty and you'll never be disappointed.
This is an excellent collection and if you have never read Prunty before, you are in for a treat. The seven stories are about lost childhoods and things that live in the woods and succubus witches and enchanting places. There is a darkness and a sadness in them and people lost and all alone, so desperate for that human touch that they would risk everything to enter the deep pits and the witch's embrace. I didn't think there was a single clunker here.
Beware of people who pick up hitchhikers. Beware of locked rooms. Beware of sexy women who are just too good to be true. Remember those things you were scared of when you were a child. You were right to be scared. Right to run away. Right to stay away. Your instincts were on the ball.
strange little towns and down and out losers experiencing fantastic events. I love Andersen Prunty's style
and always know that when I pick up one of his books I better be in 'that' kind of mood. This guy is the real deal.
1) When a creepy old man tells you, "She died in there. Still in there." --- for God's sake - don't go IN THERE!
2) If someone says "Can't catch me!" --- don't chase them!
3) You can go home again, but you're likely to regret it.
Among these stories is "The Screaming Orchard" one of my favorites in this collection in which a young man and his girlfriend find themselves stranded after their car breaks down. They are soon picked up by two brothers and what follows is a great story the likes of which King himself would of been proud to write.
Another one of my favorites would be "Sad Clown, Kentucky". An average man with an average life finds himself wanting to get out of the average town he lives in. When his mother dies his life slowly starts to spiral out of control. Without giving anymore away this is a must read story.
The other five stories are great as well. This book is well worth the cost of admission.
I can't wait to see what Andersen comes up with next!

Prunty is different. Prunty is excellent. He never gets lost in details but his stories rarely fail to give the reader a little bit of a chill.Published 15 months ago by Jeremiah jones
Not very scary at all. Only one good story in the collection. I don't remember any of the stories in detail.Published on January 29, 2013 by scorpio70
Quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Any alternative horror fan would relish this collection. It's eerie, evocative, and very easy to visualize. Kudos once more!Published on January 2, 2013 by Steven
