About the Story:
THEY WERE GOING to be monsters, for the church—Creatures from the Black Lagoon. You got to wear a suit with a zipper up the back and a head that fit like a diving helmet. They could scare the little kids and gross out the girls. No one would know who they were…

Stewart O’Nan’s “Monsters” begins as a tribute to our childhood fascination with monsters and with Halloween, and as the story unfolds, a terrible mistake is made and lives are changed forever. This is the haunting story of two childhood friends… and the accident that could have happened to any of us.

This chapbook is beautifully illustrated and designed by Keith Minnion, and only available from Lonely Road Books.
