From the Inside Flap

Excerpt from Boylan House
Halloween. 2005. Meeting House Road.
It was the third time that Mason had come to Meeting House Road to stand before the Boylan House. This was the only time that he had come alone.
He sat on the tailgate of the truck. The same truck from five years ago, when Matthew had accompanied him. But Matthew was home, handing out candy while his wife and their two little ones were out trick or treating.
Rarely did anyone come down to the end of Meeting House Road anymore, and that was a good thing. No one had believed Mason's story back in 1980. All of the adults had pawned his story off as just that, a story.
Mason knew better. His cousins had been convinced that Kevin Peacock had been snatched by someone, not some supernatural boogeyman that lived in an ancient house.
Mason was the only one who held onto what he had seen that night.
Five years had passed since the last time he stopped by, to visit his cousins. Mason would see them again in the morning. He had rented a room at a nearby motel. Tonight, though, was for the Boylan House.
Whatever was in the house--if there was something in the house, and not the creation of a frightened seven-year-old--seemed to have remembered him. Mason still had the Darth Vader mask; a none-too-subtle hint, that it knew who he was. Perhaps more than anything else, that notion bothered Mason the most. Something knew him there.
Something was playing with him.
Maybe it was the house. Maybe it was something else.
Reaching behind him, Mason took hold of the double barrel shotgun he had brought with him. It was a sawed off. Good for scaring the shit out of someone thinking that sneaking up on your porch was a good idea. Tonight, he had it packed with salt loads. Pure salt from a lick and in shell casings he had put together.
If something came at him tonight, whether human or not, it was going to get a taste of salt that would leave it feeling like hell.
Mason slid off the back of the truck and stood to look at the house.
A single lamp flickered into life in the upper left window. It moved slowly through all four of the second story windows, stopping finally at the far right.
Mason could feel his heart pounding.
But the shotgun was steady in his hands. Holding it easily, he flipped off the safety and started walking up the slight hill toward the front door. When he got about a dozen feet from the door, the light in the window vanished. Mason stopped. The old childhood fear burst up within him and threatened to send him racing back to the safety of his truck.
For the third time in his life, he encountered the abnormal and hideous silence that surrounded the house. The smell rose up around him, and every sense in his body told him that this was no place for him. That this was no place for anyone.
A creak sounded, soft and subtle, just barely audible, but there. The hackles on Mason's neck rose up, and he stiffened.
In front of him, with only the light of the half-moon to show the door of the Boylan House, Mason saw something come down from the trap. As the item landed on the granite step, Mason moved forward with his weapon ready. He reached a shaking hand out and snatched up a burlap bag.
It was full, but light. Mason made his way back to his truck. Back to the safety of the Meeting House Road.
When he reached his truck, Mason put the safety on the shotgun, placed it on the truck bed and held up the burlap sack. He opened it and looked in. But he could hardly see anything. Drawing a deep breath, Mason put his hand in and fished around. He felt something that reminded him of old corn-silk and wrapped his fingers around it.
Taking it out slowly, Mason realized that he wasn't holding corn-silk.
He was holding human hair. And the scalps that went along with it.
He looked closely at one.
The skin was white.
The hair was yellow.
A flicker of light caught Mason's eye and he looked to the Boylan House. All of the windows had light shining from them and somewhere, just faintly, he could hear something laughing.
