Laughing Moon Chronicles

I met Todd VanHooser at an event late last summer.  I found his theme intriguing so I picked up a few of his books.  I am currently reading The Lamplighter Collection.  It’s funny, I’m not usually a procrastinator, but to be honest, I don’t want to finish this book, I want to savor every moment, I don’t know if I want this book of short stories to end.  I have high hopes that when I’m done, there’ll be more ghost stories to read.  I don’t normally read ghost stories, I am careful to read them during the day, so ghosts don’t haunt my dreams.

His collection of short stories is loosely based on a city he visited many years ago.  I find myself holding my breath while I read.  Every story has a great moment or two that everyone can relate to.

I just felt an odd chill in the air.  I must retreat from this dark room…
