Death. Mysterious and terrifying, exhilarating and heartbreaking. Is it the irrevocable end of our existence or a tantalyzing new beginning? Dying is the one thing we all have in common, it is the true "final frontier."
All of the stories in "Whistling Past the Veil" have previously been published and each one deals in some way with death, dying or the supernatural. From a Shakespearean deathbed to the very gates of doggie heaven and musical hell, the stories in "Whistling Past the Veil" include horror, fantasy, love, hauntings, revenge and real-life inspirational tales all connected to the ultimate eventuality and mystery of death.
