Somewhere out west there is a town called Milestone. You will not find it on any map. If you're lucky, you won't find it at all.
Once a thriving mining community, the few souls who still dwell there know nothing of hope and everything of damnation. Because Milestone may appear near-death, a ghost town in the making, but it is very much alive.
There are the stories of invisible barriers that open and close the borders on a whim, sometimes fatally, the whispers of a man in a top hat who comes cycling up out of the darkness of the abandoned mine to change the fate of the town, the buried music box that summons him, the people with unnatural powers, the old man who counts stacks of pennies and prays they never fall...and the fires that burn brightly with the sounds of screams.
Milestone is very much alive, and those unlucky souls trapped within its borders have little choice but to learn the true nature of their prison, or become its latest victim.
And even as they fight against the inevitable, the borders continue to expand.
Milestone is growing.
Included in the following book are the novellas “The Witch”, “Saturday Night at Eddie’s”, “Thirty Miles South of Dry County” and “The Palaver”
Welcome to Milestone…
Contained within this collection are four tales that are an excellent introduction to the only town in literature to out-weird the infamous burg of Oxrun Station. Each story is a mosaic puzzle piece, complete in and of itself, that changes the reader’s perceptions of it’s contents from whatever angle it is viewed, and once the collection is finished, and each piece fitted into place, the panorama of the whole offers a view of the enigma that is Milestone that conceals as much as it reveals.
Truly an astounding work of Dark Fiction, fueled by the despair and grim will to survive of the town’s inhabitants as the shadows move swallow them all.
Highest possible recommendation.
