This free ebook is a collection of horror short stories. The latest chapter of my journey in self publishing ebooks. It is available at Smashwords and is titled The Seventh Sense. I love writing supernatural stories because they can be set anywhere, in any time and place. If you write horror or fantasy you can write it like a thriller, a science fiction epic, crime fiction, ghost story, set it in the past, present or future. There are no limits. Writing horror fiction helps me get all the disparate ideas for stories out of my head.
Below are brief descriptions of each story. Get yourself a copy from Smashwords.
