Terror from below!

In the summer of 1979, Eckert, Wisconsin, was the sight of the most unique UFO encounter in history. A young couple observed a saucer-like aircraft hovering over Hollers Hill. A blue beam blasted down from the center of the craft into the hill and caused the ground to rumble for miles.

Now, thirty years later, Eckert is experiencing nightly rumbles that stir up wild rumors and garner outside attention. The earthly tremors are being blamed on everything from earthquakes to underground earth dwellers. Two pre-teens discover a pipe out behind Packard’s Flea Market uprooted by the “booms” and come into contact with the powerful ooze bubbling from within. What begins as curiosity will end in an afternoon of unbridled terror for the entire town.

  1. I received a copy of Where Nightmares Begin through a giveaway from Goodreads. What a wonderful surprise. I do not usually read horror stories but this was a mesmerizing collection of stories. I grew up in Iowa so the story of Abraham’s Bridge was authentic to my memories of my youth . Boom Town reminded me of my fear as a kid watching the movie The Blob. I was almost too scared to read that one. Things We Fear takes place in one of my favorite places Maine. All three of these stories were amazing. I kept reading even though the stories were terrifying! When I calm down from reading these I will definitely look for more of his works! Thank you Glenn!!

    1. That’s great to hear, Mary. I’m happy you enjoyed the stories. I’m glad you made it through your fears! Come back to Old Orchard Beach anytime. 🙂 -Glenn
