The #1 Amazon Kindle Bestseller, downloaded over 250,000 times, now back in its original version…<br><br>Jack Kilborn (aka J.A. Konrath) and Blake Crouch turn their attention to the twin golden rules of hitchhiking:<br><br># 1: Don’t go hitchhiking, because the driver who picks you up could be certifiably crazy.<br><br># 2: Don’t pick up hitchhikers, because the traveler you pick up could be a raving nutcase. <br><br>So what if, on some dark, isolated road, Crazy #1 offered a ride to Nutcase #2? <br><br>When two of the most twisted minds in the world of horror fiction face off, the result is SERIAL, a terrifying tale of hitchhiking gone terribly wrong. Like a deeply twisted version of an “After School Special,” SERIAL is the single most persuasive public service announcement on the hazards of free car rides. <br><br>Beyond a thrilling piece of horrifying suspense, SERIAL is also a groundbreaking experiment in literary collaboration. Kilborn wrote the first part. Crouch wrote the second. And they wrote the third together over email in 100-word exchanges, not aware of each other’s opening section. All bets were off, and may the best psycho win. <br><br>SERIAL contains the short story, SERIAL, a Q&A with Kilborn and Crouch, author bibliographies, and excerpts of Crouch’s DESERT PLACES, Konrath’s SHAKEN, and their collaboration with F. Paul Wilson and Jeff Strand, DRACULAS.<br><br>*Note: SERIAL is an 8000-word short story. SERIAL is fully contained in SERIAL UNCUT. BAD GIRL + TRUCK STOP + SERIAL = SERIAL UNCUT.
