Thirteen boys retell tales of terror one night around the campfire. But as the session draws to a close, they realize they started out with only twelve. The stories in this collection are works of personal gratification, nostalgia, and reverence and they serve as an homage to the author's hometown and her favorite horror writers. They take place in various timelines and are written as stories within stories ranging from a headless ghost that returns as a grim reaper, a bird-like creature on the loose, a were-tiger out to seek vengeance, a vampire that decimated an entire village, and other restless paranormal entities that walk among us.
