You can run, but you can't hide...

The thinking outdoorsman's handbook to the heebie-jeebies, this third volume of our Campfire Collection gathers thirteen terrifying tales of alien abductions, encounters, and freakish forays into the unknown. Perfect to read aloud around a fire or in the comfort and "relative safety" of a cozy armchair, Thrilling, Chilling Tales of Alien Encounters offers stories from such masters of fright as Stephen King, Philip K. Dick, Damon Knight, and more. Designed with rounded corners, a durable cover, and large type for easy reading by campfire or flashlight, this rugged companion is more than trail-ready for any excursion. With an unnerving introduction by Michael Berry, science fiction and fantasy book reviewer for the San Francisco Chronicle, this creepy collection confirms that sinking feeling that something is just...not...quite...right....
