Bump In The Night
Eight children survived the harvest of Russet Creek.
Russet Creek was a small town. Its population was about five thousand people. Of that five thousand, probably a thousand or so of them were children. Of that thousand or so, eight survived.
All of the rest were taken in one night.
It was a glorious victory for the boogeymen.
Or so they thought.
For as long as there have been children, there have been boogeymen to take them. Sometimes they eat the children. Sometimes they carry them away to some horrible, unknown place, and the children are never heard from again. Sometimes-more often that you would like to think-they are hiding in the closet because the child's parents let them in.
For as long as there have been boogeymen, there have been those who fought against them; humans, animals, fantastical creatures; armed with toys, and magic, and stories. The war between the Kinderguard and the boogeymen is the oldest struggle in the history of the human race. After the boogeymen invade their town, five eleven year olds, two teenagers, and one infant will find themselves at the center of this great conflict.
BUMP IN THE NIGHT is a story for very brave children who are wise enough to know that the thing under the bed is real, and for adults who are not too grown up to understand that stories are what save us from the monsters.
