Thirteen Chairs

By Dave Shelton

Signed by the author! Limited edition offer!

Jack stands in the dark on the landing of the old house, and looks at his
feet . . . He has been here for minutes, his hand on the door handle, debating whether or not to go in.

A high-ceilinged room lit only by candles. Thirteen chairs, one empty.

Twelve mysterious storytellers, waiting to begin.

Come in! Take your place. We have been expecting you.

Do you dare to listen to our stories? Do you dare to tell your own?

Jack is a curious boy. Are you curious too?
