A wonderful romp that should become a Halloween classic.

What do a zombie, a werewolf, a demon, a gnome, bigfoot, a witch, barnacle-man and a mummy have in common?

They all live and love in the small Pacific Northwest town of Stevens' Ferry.

The chapters are episodic; each chapter nodding to the preceding chapter(s)...and a true inspiration as to what can be done, written in three days' time.
It was a bit of a shaky beginning but quickly became a very amusing read. Each chapter is of a different story that are all interconnected by being some sort of fantastical or mythical character's experience in a town of Steven's Ferry. A few of the stories aren't really too interesting, but overall quite an amusing quick read.
Wonderful collection of short stories. They're nominally in the horror vein, but they're way more intelligent than the usual thing, and not gory. I love the frazzled zombie mom, who's just trying to keep her family together. The werewolf who just isn't into his work is great, too.

This is a very witty well written book. A lot of fun to read with enjoyable characters. Jan Underwood is a very clever writter. This book won the 3 day novel contest. Wow 3 days! I know Jan as well and yes she is witty in person too.

I now have a renewed interest in fiction. Jan's characters are so real, and fun! I certainly never thought I would want to read anything about zombies, mummies, or werewolves...but she made it very intriguing. I read it in one sitting!

Monsters, acting a lot like people you know, do their best to get through another day in these droll, inter-twined short stories. A splendid anecdote to the monster-fiction-that-takes-itself-too-seriously fad.
So original and so worth the time I bought it for all my friends. If you read the first story and aren't moved to read the rest of the book you may be part Zombie yourself.
