Ever traveled down a winding, tree-lined road at night? These six horror stories take place in those “out of the way” locations: miles off of the beaten path, not another car or house in sight. The familiar, comforting sounds of civilization are long gone, replaced only by an unnatural silence and sense of unease as you venture deep into unknown territory. Take a trip down the back roads with this collection of scary stories from Evan Camby, the author who brought you the award-winning “Walking After Midnight: Tales for Halloween.” Just remember to keep your headlights on—and don’t forget to check the backseat.
