About this title:

Synopsis: Kealan Patrick Burke's first collection RAVENOUS GHOSTS was released in a very limited run, promptly sold out, and now commands high prices on the secondary market. We are very pleased to introduce you to the author's follow-up collection, an ambitious gathering of some of the tales for which he is best known.

The lonesome sound of a long forgotten train draws an old man to memories of a horrific past... A journalist makes the mistake of visiting a website where real-life executions are the order of the day... At the foot of an old tree, an insidious evil awaits two boys digging for treasure... A browbeaten salesman finds hope and a possible escape from the banality of his world when he returns home to find a fairytale beanstalk sprouting from his garden... A man resists the social pressure to quit smoking and puts himself at an unimaginable risk... A high school student accepts a dare to ask out the ugliest girl in school and enters a world of pain and violence... A bunch of barflies doomed to murder sinners get together for one last drink in a dying town...

These are some of the passengers, headed for a ride through the dark uncharted regions of the heart and mind, on a train unbound by any law but its own.

All Aboard The Number 121 to Pennsylvania.

There will be no stops.

From Publishers Weekly: Paul, a widower haunted by the ghosts of his wife and unborn son in The Grief Frequency, sums up Burke's subtle approach thus: The dead can be among the living; the living, among the dead. In 14 dark fantasies collected here, Burke (Currency of Souls) creates characters whose angst opens them up to uncanny incidents and ghostly encounters that seem an extension of their own spiritual malaise. Empathy tells of a journalist so distraught over a brutal terrorist execution that his nightmares begin erupting graphically into daily reality. In Mr. Goodnight, a young boy's terrifying encounter with a malignant entity leaves him distrusting even his closest loved ones. Though plot takes a backseat to mood and atmosphere in some stories, Burke shows skill at imagining expressive supernatural experiences appropriate for his well-developed characters and their agitated emotions.
