It’s almost that spooky time of year again. You know what I mean. The nights are arriving earlier, the shadows are getting longer, and we yearn for chills in our spines to match the chill in the air.
I love creepy short stories and this collection of 8 stories definitely delivers, but the stories are also bound together within another creepy, overarching story about a boy who gets on the wrong train. While waiting at an empty station for the train home, the boy is approached by an old man with an unsettling air and a mouth full of dark, unsolicited stories.
I highly recommend The Wrong Train to satisfy your appetite for mild chills.
