Strange things happen in Skeleton Creek . . . and when they do, Ryan writes them down and Sarah captures them on video. Now, the spookiness is spreading, and the mystery is going to take them far beyond Skeleton Creek - into places both unexpectedly sinister and spine-chillingly haunted.
Patrick Carman broke new ground for publishing with the first two Skeleton Creek stories, creating the most successful hybrid of text and web video yet. Now he ups the ante even further, taking the suspense to new places, and taking his legions of readers with him.
