People love to be scared out of their wits, though most would deny it vehemently. Ghost stories, horror flicks, and even celebrating Halloween every year are a few of the more obvious manifestations of this visceral need to be shaken and perturbed. Author Scott D. Gottschalk contributes his creative talents to the cause of enabling humanity to experience more nightmares by releasing a book, Terrifying Tales Unleashed.

Terrifying Tales Unleashed is a menagerie of short stories covering many popular genres including horror, science fiction, and suspense/thriller. Cover the gamut in this gripping narrative by way of buried alive, rats, bats, vampires, werewolves, zombies, aliens, ghosts, demons, and cannibals. The unleashing of each twisted account will bombard one’s thoughts with impending shock waves.

This book will provoke readers to look over their shoulders more than usual, render their nights sleepless and fitful, and leave them to uneasily wonder whether the stories they have partaken of are mere tracts of fiction… or perhaps something that could actually happen.
