Five Strokes to Midnight

Five Strokes to Midnight is a unique anthology featuring a total of thirteen stories by five authors, including Tom Piccirilli, Gary A. Braunbeck, Deborah Leblanc, Hank Schwaeble, and Christopher Golden.

Golden has contributed three brand new stories to the book, all of which revolve around the theme of folklore, but in different ways. He describes two of them as "quiet, sorrowful pieces," and the third as "a fun, nasty little monster story." Golden's tales are entitled All Aboard, Under Cover of Night, and Breathe My Name. We're not telling which story goes with which description - You'll have to read them to find out!

You may order the book directly from Haunted Pelican Press. It is also available at Shocklines.
