327 Days 'til Halloween...

Scare o' the Day!

Short Story

"The Fall of Silas Galloway" by Daniel Weatherer

"The Fall of Silas Galloway"

by Daniel Weatherer

Narrated by Jesse Cornett

Here's a spooky tale for a cold and dark Autumn Sunday afternoon, "The Fall of Silas Galloway," by Daniel Weatherer.

"The Fall of Silas Galloway" is the perfect companion to my post from a few weeks back about Ouija Boards. The "talking board" in Weatherer's scary story is less of a doorway to the main character's unconscious mind and more of a doorway to Hell.

Specifically, the board channels a spirit calling itself, Six-One-Six.

I have read that in some translations of The Book of Revelation, the Number of the Beast is said not to be Six-Six-Six, but Six-One-Six.

Daniel Weatherer is from Staffordshire in England. He only recently began writing horror stories but has had almost immediate, and quite unheard of, success. His first short story publication is already being turned into a feature film!

Perhaps Weatherer is a little too familiar with entities calling themselves Six-One-Six?    

Regardless of that fact, it's important for you to know that "The Fall of Silas Galloway" appears in the exciting new horror anthology, Daylight Dims.  

Daylight Dims is right up my alley! It's a Halloween-themed collection of 13 scary stories lovingly selected from over 200 submissions by editors J.W. Zulauf and Kristopher Mallory's small, but dedicated, team.

Also, several of the stories in Daylight Dims have been masterfully produced for audio by Craig Grosheck's Chilling Tales for Dark Nights!

"The Fall of Silas Galloway," in particular, is brought to creepy life by narrator Jesse Cornett! For more recordings of scary short stories with high quality narration from the anthology, check out the YouTube page for Daylight Dims and Chilling Tales for Dark Nights!

Make sure to subscribe to them both!!

Daylight Dims can be purchased in print or e-book format on Amazon... which is something you should definitely do! The Kindle Edition is just $4.99!
