Description

The Number 121 to Pennsylvania and Others

by Kealan Patrick Burke

Signed Limited Edition

Kealan Patrick Burkes first collection RAVENOUS GHOSTS was released in a very limited run, promptly sold out, and now commands high prices on the secondary market. We are very pleased to introduce you to the authors follow-up collection, an ambitious gathering of some of the tales for which he is best known.

The lonesome sound of a long forgotten train draws an old man to memories of a horrific past... A journalist makes the mistake of visiting a website where real-life executions are the order of the day... At the foot of an old tree, an insidious evil awaits two boys digging for treasure... A browbeaten salesman finds hope and a possible escape from the banality of his world when he returns home to find a fairytale beanstalk sprouting from his garden... A man resists the social pressure to quit smoking and puts himself at an unimaginable risk... A high school student accepts a dare to ask out the ugliest girl in school and enters a world of pain and violence... A bunch of barflies doomed to murder sinners get together for one last drink in a dying town...

These are some of the passengers, headed for a ride through the dark uncharted regions of the heart and mind, on a train unbound by any law but its own.

All Aboard The Number 121 to Pennsylvania.

There will be no stops.

Story Notes

Praise and Reviews:
"In 14 dark fantasies collected here, Burke creates characters whose angst opens them up to uncanny incidents and ghostly encounters that seem an extension of their own spiritual malaise... Burke shows skill at imagining expressive supernatural experiences appropriate for his well-developed characters and their agitated emotions."
Publishers Weekly

"Dont read it late at night."
Booklist

"Each tale grabs you within the first few sentences and never lets go, resulting in a collection guaranteed to take you on one of the scariest rides of your life."
Rue Morgue
