Don’t Look Behind You-A Collection of Horror is the third compilation of short stories mostly in the horror genre with surprise endings by Billy Wells.
Please be aware that some of these offerings are quite gruesome and not for those readers whose parents did not let them watch scary movies and TV shows as a child. If you are prone to nightmares, do not read this book:
- At bedtime when you are alone.
- If you believe in ghosts, goblins, or the Loch Ness monster.
- During the full moon, particularly when the wolfbane blooms.
- Around a campfire after dark in a dense forest.
- If the news reported a deranged maniac escaped from the local asylum.
- If you have rats in the cellar or bats in your belfry.
- If you think something from another planet has landed on earth.
- If limbs being hacked off make you queasy.
- If you believe a boogeyman lives in your closet.
- If you live in close proximity to Transylvania or the Black Lagoon.
