Hoppers

Lost Hollow Books
Free sample

Mike Bragg is a man you can trust. He'll fix your car up right. He might even drive it home himself, just to make sure it's running exactly the way he thinks it should before you get it back. But when he accidentally runs over a small brown rabbit on his way home from work one day, Mike chalks up the incident as just another insignificant rodent casualty.

"Too many of them hoppers anyway," he reasons. And maybe he's right, because that very afternoon dozens of them begin to crowd outside the door of Mike's humble abode.

Watching. Waiting.

Plotting?

HOPPERS is a short tale of dark comic horror from the mind of Isaac Thorne, a nice man who simply wants to provide you with a few fun frights. Fast-paced and packed with edge-of-your-seat moments, HOPPERS is a story that might make you wary about what darts out in front of your speeding car on a given afternoon. Better to put that smart phone down and keep your eyes on the road than try to survive the vengeful roadkill vendetta of the HOPPERS.

 It's easy to tell yourself there's no such thing as ghosts, at least until you meet one face-to-face. Then it becomes a matter of convincing yourself that you are not seeing what you think you are seeing. If you happen to be Jake, a barely school age child who awakens one night to find an elongated abomination in female form floating by his bedside, there is no amount of daylight or parental soothing that can convince you that ghosts are not real.

 

The apparition arrives at a crucial time in Jake’s family life, just when he’s beginning to notice that his mommy and his daddy aren’t getting along the way they once did. Daddy seems particularly stressed about his job at the hospital, which seems to be making him tired and nearly always irritable.

 

His new visitor, the start of the school year, and the tension between his parents start to take their toll on Jake as he searches for a way to rid himself of at least one of his triad of problems. His schooling is required by law. His parents don’t seem to be interested in continuing to get along. That leaves Jake with only one option. Can he determine what the ghost wants and send her on her way back to the realm of the dead?
