Sylvia was searching for a good story to kick off her journalism career and almost immediately I thought I knew how the story would go…but not quite. Calvin Demmer wasn’t going to make it quite that easy for me.
Suicide Bridge…36 cases. Why had she never heard of it before?
I can guess. There’s something going on and everyone in town wants to keep it a secret.
Suitably creepy for an easy reading short story.
I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of The Town That Feared Dusk by Calvin Demmer.
Sylvia Bernstein doesn’t want to end up on a dead-end path like a former journalism colleague. She begins searching the tabloid’s archives for a story that can get her career back on track. A strange bridge, with an abnormally high rate of suicides, seems like the perfect place to start. She journeys to the little town, eager to investigate, but encounters a tale far more sinister than she ever expected…

“Calvin Demmer is a rising star in the weird firmament. It’s possible that his work might change your life forever. This short story is a good example of his craft and impact.” – Duane Pesice, author of Before Crazytown
“Prepare to face a menacing supernatural force that’ll have you questioning the veil between heaven and hell. An edge-of-your seat story with a mind-bending conclusion.” – Theresa Braun, author of Fountain Dead
