Publisher Comments:

13 Chilling Tales is a book of original short stories. Most all of these tales were based on concepts that might possibly be expanded to novels. Since the paranormal has many layers of interest, this book samples a variety. We have a vampire, ghosts, a werewolf, the walking dead, a gypsy, a Ouija board, time travel, Bigfoot, and even Death himself. The endings will sneak up on you and are meant to shock or surprise. Many of the characters involved might resemble people you know. It is the author's intent to take you on a brief journey to visit things that we may never understand. In some cases these places may seem familiar and the settings realistic which, makes it all the more frightening. Many of these stories begin in the world of collectables, where na ve individuals purchase items from people they don't really know. They could be people who may have hidden motivations lying below the surface. Then again, it might be the item itself. Who was the former owner? Were they good, or evil, and still clinging to this item from the beyond? All too often a person buys an antique or collectable, and gets much more than they expected but when their realization takes is far too late

As a bonus there is a 14th story. The author dispels a true urban legend and ghost story. Incredibly it is an urban legend that was created unintentionally by author himself. An urban legend which he learned about 30 years later

You will read 13 Chilling tales and experience a spectrum of entertainment. Afterward, you may never view a flea market, antique fair, garage sale or second store the same ever again.

Edwin Becker is a master chilling story teller! These 13 Chilling stories are all excellent! I liked each and everyone of them. The last story is a true story that is not only fascinating but something I believe we have all experienced one time or another during Halloween.

Ed reminds me of Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, and William Blatty.

Ed has had real life experiences with the paranormal, occult, and ghosts per his other outstanding book and the scariest one I've ever read called True Haunting. All I can say is get it now, read it, and beware! Can you imagine moving into a house in 1971 during summer and it being so cold inside not needing AC? There's more! Oh a lot more! Best book ever!! I read it in two days; couldn't put it down.

Ok - back to 13 Chilling Tales - The first story had me going up to the very end. I didn't have a clue. What a scary and creepy twist. Each story is so entwined in truth and paranormal but there is one story that stuck with me the most and it's called Favorite Things about a man going to a flea market and purchasing a fine crystal ball. The woman claimed she bought it by accident at a house sale, since Gypsies never sell their crystal balls, as it is forbidden within Gypsie culture.

I highly recommend this book for everyone that likes horror, creepy and weird, unknown, paranormal, occult, and the like.

Try True Haunting as I downloaded it immediately. Enjoy and keep the lights on[:\
It's an absolutely must read. The best of the best!!

The next book I'm getting of Ed's is Banished: A Demon, an Exorcist and A Battle of FaithThis goes hand in hand with True Haunting.

DeathWalker: A Vampire's Vengeance

The Eleventh Commandment

A Trip Back in Time

DeathWalker II: A Vampire's Domain

Here's hoping there's a Part II of True Haunting!

Thanks Ed! Keep em coming.
