A childhood evil thought long dead reawakens. In the deep, dark woods death methodically stalks its prey. A strange mirror found in an unknown cave is much more than it appears to be. The perfect plan takes an unexpected turn, while death comes for everyone in frighteningly different shapes and forms. A tortured survivor quests endlessly for atonement that may never come. Strange and terrifying creatures that shouldn’t exist, do.
These are some of the chilling and speculative themes found in Brian J. Jarrett’s Walking At Night: A Collection of Horror. A work some fifteen years in the making, this collection features some of the author’s darkest themes and some of his strangest worlds yet imagined. This collection will take readers on nine suspense-filled trips to the dark side of humanity and to places beyond the realm of science and reason.
