DescriptionNot From Around Here, is a collection of 18 unique and connected, sometimes scary and sometimes funny, but always thought provoking and entertaining stories unlike any you've ever read before. In this book you'll find: "Best Friend," where a young man is going through difficult times, until a little boy with a remarkable secret reminds him of the healing power of friendship. "The Placebo Effect," where a doctor uncovers a shocking conspiracy, but his murder leaves it in the hands of his close friend to get the truth to the government. "Join the Club," in which a college organization has a frightening initiation and a tantalizing reward. "Faker," a rich grandfather wants to make sure his grandchildren grow up just right-unlike his own children. "Fur and Loathing," the story of how a disgruntled groundhog takes matters into its own paws. "Old Ways," where an African curse threatens to end a family's bloodline. And "Mirrors," where a man getting a haircut sees a reflection in the mirror of someone waving to him, who isn't actually in the room. All of these, and 11 more extraordinary tales, await you.

A Wonderful Way to Spend The Day!
I love this book. Throughout all eighteen stories I was consistently
enthralled ..and surprised by the endings. There are very few things
left in life that are totally original, but this book is one of them! The stories are at times scary, exciting, and often funny, but always engaging. While being a very easy read, I found the subject matter diverse, which helped to maintain my interest and made me eager to read the next story and find the next twist and surprise! A read I can recommend to msot anyone! by Kevin P.
