About David Longhorn
David Longhorn was born in North East England long before the internet, but fortunately they had plenty of books in those days! He enjoyed reading all sorts of fact and fiction in childhood and also became a huge fan of old horror movies and the BBC’s Ghost Stories for Christmas on television, despite losing a lot of sleep as a result.
He went on to get a degree in English Studies, which somehow led him to a career in local government, which in turn took him into a recording studio where he provided voice-overs, read news, and did a lot of other audio stuff. It’s been that kind of life, really – a bit random but quite interesting. All the while he was reading and writing supernatural fiction, influenced by both the classic tales of writers like Ambrose Bierce, M.R. James, and Edgar Allan Poe, but also by modern masters such as Stephen King. He hopes to write a lot more about the world of the dead and undead, assuming they let him…

Titles By David Longhorn
Tragedy strikes twice when an enraged father discovers his son’s death was caused by bullying and sets out for bloody revenge. An adventurer seeking the true meaning of fear learns to be careful with what he wishes for. And a web of mystery leads a group of neighborhood children to investigate and carry the secret of their discovery well into adulthood…
Pull up a chair at Hannigan’s, the tavern of a thousand screams. Order a drink, as you enjoy the twelve magnificently macabre tales of terror in this bone-chilling new collection.
You lick your lips as another tale begins. Slamming your glass on the counter, you decide to get another. It’s addicting—this smooth, warm beverage. You peer at the crimson liquid inside… Blood.
Then you wake up, relieved it was all a dream.
Or was it?
You notice you’re not on your bed, your clothes and skin bloodstained, the previous night a blur.
You entered the Tavern of Terror a human. But left as a creature of the night.
And there’s no way back…
A small-town carpenter exterminates a nest of ravenous insects, only to find them building a new home deep within his flesh. A brilliant doctor’s medication unleashes supernatural vengeance upon a pair of remorseless killers. And a peaceful camping trip becomes a blood-soaked nightmare, when a local legend is unleashed…
Scare Street welcomes you to Hannigan’s, a delightfully cozy Irish pub on the road just ahead. Everyone at Hannigan’s has a story to tell. Tales of ghosts, ghouls, and other shadowy horrors. Whispered nightmares, guaranteed to make your skin crawl and keep you up at night.
So pull up a chair, order a drink, and try to relax. After all, these twelve bone-chilling tales are just local legends and drunken mutterings. They can’t really hurt you, can they?
But as the bottles are emptied and the warm fire dies down, you can’t help but wonder.
After all, every legend begins with a grain of truth…
An artist struggles to hold on to her soul as she feverishly completes a deadly masterpiece. The death of a movie producer unleashes an ancient reel of film with a dark secret worth killing for. And a woman gets the scare of her life as strange intruders break into her home...
Welcome back to Hannigan’s, the tavern of a thousand tales. In this cozy neighborhood pub, everyone has a story to tell. But those stories don’t always have a happy ending.
As you sip your drink and listen to another nightmarish tale, you slowly realize the crowd around you has changed.
Their whispers and murmurs become growls and snorts. And as the room grows darker, their eyes start to glow.
Claws and fangs gnash in the shadows, hungry for blood.
It’s closing time.
And it looks like the last drink is on you…
They were searching for ghosts. But what they found was much worse…
TV Producers Matt McKay and Ted Gould are looking for one thing… ghosts. As the creators of a popular paranormal investigation show, they’ve staked their reputation on the existence of the super-natural. But when they lead their camera crew deep into the cavernous interior of Malpas Abbey, they discover far more than they bargained for…
The Abbey’s infamous history is marred with bloodshed. With its corrupt walls resting upon a foundation of death and torment, the bleak, decrepit manor house has been avoided by locals for centuries.
As the unsuspecting crew ventures into the hell house, they are beset by one problem after another. Strange noises echo through the halls. Their equipment fails, and ominous shadows surround them. And they soon realize they are not alone in this sinister building.
Something else stalks the dark halls of the abbey. Something that feeds upon their worst nightmares. A force of evil, stronger and older than the devil himself.
And it hungers for fresh blood…
Your worst nightmares lurk in the shadows…
An antique dollhouse welcomes a troubled family to a celebration of death. A party girl’s addiction gives birth to a monster within. Man’s best friend must fend off a woman’s greatest nightmare…
Scare Street is proud to present eleven chilling tales of the supernatural, in one monstrous volume. Horror authors Ron Ripley, David Longhorn, Sara Clancy, and many more unite to bring you a terrifying collection of short stories, each one guaranteed to haunt your dreams. And each one more chilling than the last.
Once you start reading you won’t be able to stop. Because when these authors sink their teeth into you, it’s already too late.
The only way to escape from these nightmares… is to wake up screaming.
Something deadly is hiding in the shadows…
When a TV crew seeking evidence of the supernatural enters the crumbling grounds of Malpas Abbey, they have no idea what they might find. Hoping to capture paranormal activity live on camera, they descend deeper into the shadows, hunting for ghosts and apparitions. But instead, they discover something much worse…
Thrust into a battle against forces beyond their comprehension, the production team soon find themselves locked in a struggle for survival that reaches far beyond the crumbling old manor house.
An ancient evil has been unleashed on the English countryside. Known as The Interlopers, these sinister invaders from another dimension live among us. And they have only one goal.
Total dominion over the human race…
