What an awesome short story! I kept wanting to know what the heck was going to happen! It was dark with a great ending! Even with it being a short story, I really liked Fred! Review on my blog

Fred’s father worked on a military base until he disappeared, no note, no news, nothing. With Father’s Day coming, Fred is determined to go into the now abandoned base and search for any clue as to what happened to the man he called Dad. What Fred found is far beyond human comprehension, far darker and far more terrifying than he ever could have imagined, and yes, he now knows what happened to his father.

Calvin Demmer has left no holiday unscathed as he finally puts his own spin on Father’s Day that is defin

The latest entry in Calvin Demmers 'Dark Celebration' series changes things up as more of a sci-fi offering. However, the main focus is the same as a young protagonist struggles with his place in larger world, trying to figure out its mysteries and unprepared that it indeed has designs on them. There is a nice call back to the other stories in this series as well, jigsaw pieces falling into place, an unveiling of a larger design.Fast paced and well written. Recommended.

"Don't do it!" is something you often want to yell at characters in horror stories, and this young man needs that advice at every turn. At the same time, you get why he does what he does.
This short had a twist that you can kind of see coming because, well, Area 51 is mentioned. But the "Fatherly Object" part was something different that I wasn't expecting.
As with a lot of this author's shorts, this story was complete unto itself, but I also wanted to know more, like this could be an opening ch

One of Demmer's best stories to date! It's hard to discuss the piece without giving anything away, but I will tell you this--it's a gripping page turner. You will get sucked in and be amazed and horrified at the shocking conclusion. I particularly enjoyed Demmer's descriptions here. They are vivid and well-imagined. And, you will be left feeling haunted, and that something like this could really happen. The author's depiction of events is very convincing. Even if you don't buy into the sci-fi pr ...more

I hesitate less and less to read Demmer's work. The Dark Celebrations is something I contually look forward to with every nearing holiday. U.F.O. Is no different. Maybe my favorite of the collection yet. Sci-Fi usually carries hints of horror, and horror does Sci-Fi. U.F.O. does an exceptional job in blending both into a great thrill ride. Do not hesitate to join Fred in his search for his father, you won't regret it!

This was a very odd tale. Kind of came out left field and was rather unexpected. I had a hard time feeling the fear, but I could roll with this tale. Its unnaturalness carried it.
