13th Hour


13th hour, short story, tammie painter

From light tales of legends and love, to dark stories of ancient beasts and a desperate chef, 13th Hour will delight you, mystify you, and make you cringe.

13th Hour’s seventeen tales tick through questions such as….Can you dream forever? What is it really like to work for the gods? What would you do for love? Or for revenge? Do fabled creatures still stalk the earth? What lurks in paradise? What is your family’s darkest secret? …and many more.

So sit down and unwind your clocks because it’s time for the 13th Hour.


  • I usually don’t read fiction but this I really liked. The stories were varied in the type of suspense/horror. To me these stories seem like a cross between Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock.
  • I’m a huge fan of supernatural short stories, and this book was perfect. My favorite story, ‘Island Ways’ creeped me out in the way I only thought Stephen King could. Loved it!
  • This is a great collection of short stories! So well written, each story totally unique, a really great read! I will be recommending this book to all of my friends!
