A novella and 12 stories from a master of supernatural horror.
Father John has lived his whole life without knowing a woman's touch. Hard at first, his self-denial grew easier over time, as he learned to master his urges with a regimen of prayer, cold showers, and jigsaw puzzles. That changed the day that Debra Rocks entered his confessional. A rough-talking adult film actress, she has come to ask him to pray for a murdered costar. Her cinnamon perfume infects Father John, and after she departs he becomes obsessed. Around the corner from his church is a neon-lit alley of sin. He goes there hoping to save her life before he damns himself.
That is Blue World, the novella that anchors this collection of chilling stories by Robert R. McCammon. Although monsters, demons, and murderers fill this audio, in McCammon's world the most terrifying landscape of all is the barren wasteland of a lost man's soul.

A great selection of short stories, the ones with evil children were especially creepy. The story of the priest was good too.
When I'm listening to short story collections I'm always prepared for a couple of filler stories. But I can say in all honestly that I thoroughly enjoyed every single one of these.
There were lots of stories, but one that really stood out was the one where it opens with a family playing scrabble in their living room. It was a real chiller.
I thought the narrators did a sterling job.
"50/50 on the readers"
I enjoyed the stories and thought Bronson Pinchot did a great job but every story Kevin T. Collins read annoyed me so much I was dreading listening to them. I really liked the idea of different stories read by different voices just not that particular voice.
This collection of stories were so fresh and imaginative, some stories were dark and some as joyful as a spring morning but they were all told with such descriptive magic they drew you in to the tale. Full of human nature, magic, fright, suspense and triumph they
held me spellbound. and I truly enjoyed this book. The writing was superb and the narrators talented and well suited to the stories they narrated. Bravo! Well done!
