Mark Orr’s story alone is worth the 99 cent price, if you want a good belly laugh. There are a couple of reprints from Ramsey Campbell, too. You can’t go wrong!
Here’s the obligatory disclaimer: I have a story in it it. Mine sucks, compared to the others.
In addition to (predictably) vowing to get Fossil Lake pulled, because its very existence is getting under his skin, Nicky has taken to harassing Elizabeth Peake. I don’t know Elizabeth, but I certainly remember her name from the old Xanga days a decade ago. As far as I know, she never did anything to Nicky. Then again, so many people’s introduction to Nicky, as did mine, occurred when he went after them out of the blue. The “Who the fuck are you?” reaction is rapidly followed by “Oh lord, what a creep.”
On what grounds Nicky plans to get Fossil Lake pulled, I don’t know. Even he admits the title is only “a bastardization of Lake Fossil.” Jerrod’s highly entertaining story, in which Nicky screams at the lake for using the name of his company, nails Nicky’s twisted mental processes.

The preview was a rollicking good read — sometimes scary, sometimes funny, but all good.
