Right then, now you know how awesome these guys are why don’t I mention the short stories.

  • Jenny’s House is a great place to play, but an unexpected playmate makes for a dark session of show-and-tell
  • Three kids seek to steal from a travelling carnival and get more than they bargained for in A Lullaby for Caliban
  • In The Last Nephew, Nephew yearns to be free of Uncle’s depredations, but when Uncle leaves his pocket watch behind one night, it gives him the key to his escape.


  • Crossing The Cornfield is harrowing on the best of winter nights, but this night, Jack turns to see eyes in the darkness and knows that something is following him…,
  • In The Ginger Men, mother is baking a special ingredient into a treat for father, an ingredient that gives her pie dough a life of its own.


Featuring stories by Ada Hoffmann, Julie Jansen, Mark Onspaugh, Mike Trier, and Elizabeth Twist, One Buck Horror – Volume One is definitely an insight into great things to come. Each short is written and edited to a professional standard and contains a gripping plot on every page. Although not all of the shorts contain huge amounts of blood and gore, they more than make up for it with eerie storylines and satisfying endings that only the best can provide. One Buck Horror is sure to become a renowned anthology of great horror works, so if that’s not an incentive to buy I don’t know what is!
