Everyone is afraid of something.

Maybe it's that flash of movement you are sure you saw from the corner of your eye just a second ago, but when you turned, nothing was there. Maybe it's the new noise in your house that you tell yourself is just the joists settling. Maybe it's your neighbor who seems friendly and convivial, but there is something just a bit off about them.

Ordinary people encountering other people--or, perhaps, things--are at the crux of what I write. Ordinary people can be heroes, but they can also have the fecal matter scared out of them when they are stepping up.

Some tales have a happy ending, but not all. And whether the monsters are human, or something else, their stories will be real.


David Six lives in the Winston-Salem, NC area.

Fall nights are for settling in to the slow darkening of the world. Embrace it with a scary story by David Six!


Quietly disturbing stories set in neighbourhoods like yours. '13' turns out to be unlucky for someone in every story. Luckily for you he's joined this promotion - just think twice before you go out after dark. There might be someone watching...

Tomson Cobb

I really like this cover.

Kate Rauner

I just read the first story and couldn't put it down. Edge of your seat suspense, and I truly didn't know how it would end. Recommended!

Leon Cameron

Great title, great name for an author, intriguing cover!

Eamonn Murphy

With his detailed prose, David Six takes you right into the minds of his psychopathic characters in a disturbing way. Not for the faint-hearted but great stuff.

Jeff Dosser

A chilling read. Highly recommended and you can't beat 13 stories.

Just what a horror fan needs

Midwest Classics Press

13 is a marvelous collection of short stories. Never thought I could get completely terrified in just a few pages. Which means there's time for "just one more story" before you have to turn out the lights - which of course you don't really want to... Claim Your Copy Now.

I like short horror stories... especially a collection of them. Tightly knit, they tend to keep you on the edge. So looking forward to reading these.
