Abstract:

"From the mind of the man Stephen King calls 'a master of the macabre' comes a brilliant new collection of no-punches-pulled horror stories, some never-before-collected and many originals that have never been published anywhere before. Bentley Little can take the innocuous, twist it around, and write a story that will change your way of thinking. Walking alone: short stories is a shining example of his talent to scare you, creep you out, and make you shudder. There's a little something for every reader of horror and twisted suspense in this very special volume. Just don't be caught reading alone after dark!"--Jacket flap.
