    They all knew about the tunnel. Everyone in town knew about it. Knowing it was there was ordinary, common. Talking about it wasn’t normal. Seeing it wasn’t normal. Going into it… That was insane. Nobody quite remembered when, how, or why the tunnel was built. It had always been there, a black,...

    They came like a storm, like a biblical plague, like a vast cloud of suffocation, rising over the horizon. When they were hungry, the sky turned black, and the flutter of their brown, papery wings was deafening. When the locusts came, the world went dark. When they came, there was nothing but smothe...

    Sarah couldn’t recall why she’d started working nights at the supermarket. She knew she needed the money, but at this point, was it really worth it anymore? The lack of sleep wasn’t as bad as she expected, but the main problem with the graveyard shift was that it was so incredibly dull. She di...

    Our current education system in the U.S. relies heavily upon standardized tests to determine things such as funding, admission to colleges, and the progress of students. However, this system has enormous flaws. Standardized tests do not measure creativity. They do not measure how good a student migh...

    Snow crunched under the tires of the car as it drove down the dirt road, deeper and deeper into the woods. Arthur had promised his daughter that it wouldn’t be much farther to the cabin, yet it had already been almost an hour since he had said that. The cabin belonged to his daughter’s grandfath...

    It had been almost an hour since Charles’ car broke down when the rain started. It did not begin slowly or gradually. Instead the sky exploded, and drops began falling in dense sheets, coming down as hard as stones. He had been leaning against the side of her vehicle, waiting for the tow truck to ...

    The house had been incredibly cheap, yet neither Claire nor her two children were able to guess why. It had one floor and a cellar, heating, air conditioning, and plumbing, as well as three bedrooms. The cellar had a dirt floor, and there were a few minor problems with the electricity, but otherwise...

    The walls here are coated in rust and sticky with blood Diseased Abandoned Flickering halogen lights swing back and forth in nauseating spirals The air smells like static And acetone Chains and meat hooks They were never alone In this empty place Something else is here It's awake Mou...

    Donald had worked the night shift as a custodian at the hospital for three years, and never once felt frightened. Tonight was different. The building had three stories and a basement. It was his job to clean the floors in the hallways of each one. He always started at the top and worked his way down...

    A few minutes before midnight, as Patrick lay sleeping, it happened again, for the third time that month. The first time he had the nightmare, a few months ago, he dismissed it as something peculiar he ate, or a persistent memory of the horror film he watched the week before. But he hadn’t eaten a...

    She was in the dark Not entirely, though, for the scarecrow man's red lantern wobbled and bobbed outside her window It made the shadows come to life In a vile rebirth of black blood smeared on the bedroom walls Suffocating With their heads wrapped in plastic garbage bags As they danced P...

    Up from the pile of leaves, a single arm slithered, pale fingers, like spider's legs, twitching in the dead air. The arm was followed by a body, dragging itself upward, until finally, his head burst through the papery orange pile. He stood, covered in leaves, gazing around the hospital hallway....

    The fog settled in on Monday, just as the children of Hollow Pines were coming back to school from the weekend. It blanketed the streets in gray, making it difficult to see any more than ten feet. The grey mist came during the night, creeping out of nowhere to fill the town, turning people into blur...

    William gazed in despair at his car's fuel gauge. The needle hovered over the red letter E. The vehicle had ground to a stop on the dry pavement of the desert highway just a few minutes ago, not quite halfway to his destination, the engine sputtering like the cough of a young child. Groaning, h...

    She has a swimming pool full of kerosene in her mouth Where the children float on their rubber ducks As she drinks powdered glass From wine bottles and fish bowls And exhales ashes through her nose. Hair like a chameleon's feathers Teeth like a zipper She'll swallow them all Finger...
