Do You Like The Dark?

If yes, press one*.

See, this is what happens when I post after taking a sleeping pill. Chaotic frivolity.

Let's say you "pressed one."

Then you are hanging out with me, in a very dark place, smack dab between two very disturbed men. And we have both handed control over.  


Did their eyes just flash red?

We are in for one hell of a ride...

If you cheesed out and are still sitting contentedly in front of your computer, read the following and press two if you need more persuasion. 

Remember the twin golden rules of hitchhiking?
# 1: Don’t go hitchhiking, because the driver who picks you up could be certifiably crazy.
# 2: Don’t pick up hitchhikers, because the traveler you pick up could be raving nutcase.

So what if, on some dark, isolated road, Crazy #1 offered a ride to Nutcase #2?

When two of the most twisted minds in the world of horror fiction face off, the result is SERIAL, a terrifying tale of hitchhiking gone terribly wrong. Like a deeply twisted version of an “After School Special,” SERIAL is the single most persuasive public service announcement on the hazards of free car rides.

Beyond a thrilling piece of horrifying suspense, SERIAL is also a groundbreaking experiment in literary collaboration.
Kilborn wrote the first part. Crouch** wrote the second. And they wrote the third together over email in 100-word exchanges, not aware of each other’s opening section. All bets were off, and may the best psycho win.

**Crouch also wrote ABANDON which you can get a taste of if you press This is one of the best books I've read in years.
