A new short story from the creator of Little Killers: A to Z.Cooper isn’t doing well in Covered Bridge, Massachusetts.
His mother is filling her days with vodka and orange juice, and his psychotic little sister keeps cutting the heads off her dolls. His delusional grandfather won’t stop staring at non-existent cows in the pasture, and their farm dog is acting meaner than usual.
Everyone blames Cooper for the tragic accident which took his girlfriend’s life. Now a group of slackers from Mount Tom Regional High School are gathering deep in a forest clearing—at the Devil’s Dining Room—eager for the rising of her ghost on Devil’s Night, the eve before Halloween.
Cooper thinks they’re all crazy. Are they?
