Nightvine is an amuse bouche of short, dark stories including the tale of an elderly woman who goes shopping for cat food, an Army Company with a rash of AWOL's, and the story of a nurse who shares a plant with special patients.
These pieces are for fans of the macabre in this homage to The Twilight Zone, Tales of the Crypt, Night Gallery and the work of Charles Addams.
The stories in this collection are for lovers of horror and horror surprise, every day people in situations that do not always have an every day ending.
Many great stories are included in this book. Here are excerpts from two of them.
Excerpt from "The Pride of Vera Lake":
Today Vera was forced to leave the house. A winter storm had raged for almost a week, knocking out power and snowing everyone in. She wasn't so concerned for herself, but the cats needed food. They were so hungry. How Herbert had loved those cats! They were such a comfort now that he was no longer there to watch over her.
Shoving a hand down into the left pocket of her winter coat, she pulled out a thick pair of gloves just as two cats the color of a well-worn basketball, emerald green eyes shot with streaks of silver and gold, appeared out of the now darkened parlor and began to brush up against her legs.
"There, there. It won't be long and I will be back with something wonderful for you," Vera whispered.
