Gruesome Faces, Ghastly Places

A collection of horror stories by South Dakota authors

Authored by Adrian Ludens, C. W. LaSart, Doug Murano

A collection of fifteen dark tales, Gruesome Faces Ghastly Places brings together three South Dakota-based horror authors in one exclusive collection.

Ride along on a nightmarish road trip to Nowhere in Doug Murano's "Pavement Ends." Witness a bizarre Old West exorcism in Adrian Ludens' "Ghost Soup." And tour a carnival freak show that is more than it seems in C.W. LaSart's "To Each His Own Hell."

These tales and a dozen more are sure to thrill any reader of horror and supernatural suspense fiction.

"In the very best way, this collection...reminds me of the classic "Hitchcock Presents" paperbacks: The horror here initially seems familiar and then takes twists and turns, zigs, zags, and deadfalls into new and ultra-disturbing places. South Dakota will not likely add this title as a guidebook, but if you like traveling with fear as a companion, you'll want this collection of G and G."
-Mort Castle, Bram Stoker Award-winning author and editor.

"These three voices, brought together here like a chorus, are part of the cutting edge of modern horror. Go ahead and turn the page. I dare you. But I will warn you. You're gonna get sliced up. And you'll love it while you bleed. They're that good."
-Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author
