"Case #BF 4985369101 Journal transcribed from notes scribbled underneath a series of tables, in green crayon, in an abandoned diner."

When Tony McCasland, an "unofficial department head of project SIDEBOARD, a secret division of The Vault" learns of the dissolution of his department from long time friend Jason Bowman, a "special cold case liaison for the FBI", he reveals hidden truths and feelings, subjecting the FBI to hash embarrassment and Jason to a savage endgame.

This exchange goes down duri

I’m a big fan of found footage horror movies. The Last Broadcast, The Blair Witch Project, and even a couple of the Paranormal Activity movies weren't bad. When I saw Journals of Horror, and saw all the top-notch writers involved… I knew I had to have it! Found footage horror without the headache or motion sickness? Yes, please.

Each story within this anthology is listed by a case number, and how/where the notes were found & transcribed. They each find their own voice – FBI secret divisions, obse

Whew! This book took me awhile to get through. There are some pretty great stories in here, and then there's a few that I really struggled to get through. All in all though, I'm glad I took the time to finish it. I would recommend these stories. ...more

Wow! What a great read! Let me start by saying ... This is NOT my kind of horror. I made this purchase because of the rock star TOC ... and these amazing authors did not let me down. I like the "found" idea, but I am always disappointed in the POV and results. This is my testimony - if you are like me - go on and give this book a try - because you'll be excited enough to give it 5 stars too! Thank you, Terry, for making this happen - awesome job! ...more

Project SIDEBOARD is a special cold case secret division of the FBI, dedicated to investigating eerie, unsolved murder and suicide cases. SIDEBOARD’S unsolved files are a variety of journalistic entries recording the events prior to each horrific occurrence. There are notes left on toilet paper, handwritten journals, video recordings, all of which spin spine-tingling tales that leave the reader astounded. “Journals of Horror: Found Fiction” is a collection of horror shorts written by up and comi ...more
