A nice little short story from RUSH drummer Neil Peart and Kevin J. Anderson. It's a horror story that appeared in a couple of magazines and is currently available in an e-book format. The story draws from Neil Peart's experiences while bicycling through west Africa and lends some reality to the setting. It's a good fit for any horror story fan and has a rather thought provoking end.

About a 3.5. Found this because I'm a long time Rush fan. A story from Neil's travels and drum obsession. About a rock drummer who discovers a special drum while touring Africa. I won't say much more, it would give it away. Not the best written story, but a good story.
A short horror story co-written by Rush drummer/lyricist Neil Peart and sci-fi writer Kevin J. Anderson. It has its roots in autobiography, as Peart rode his bicycle through Africa, but soon takes a dark turn. An uncomplicated story, but I found it interesting.
This was a nice quick read. It had the feel of a something you might find in one of Stephen King's short story collections.

This has a real spooky feel to it. Well written.
