The #1 Amazon Kindle Bestseller, downloaded over 350,000 times, now back in its original version...

Jack Kilborn (aka J.A. Konrath) and Blake Crouch turn their attention to the twin golden rules of hitchhiking:

# 1: Don't go hitchhiking, because the driver who picks you up could be certifiably crazy.

# 2: Don't pick up hitchhikers, because the traveler you pick up could be a raving nutcase.

So what if, on some dark, isolated road, Crazy #1 offered a ride to Nutcase #2?

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.

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.

This eBook 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.

  • Note: Serial is an 8000-word short story. Serial is fully contained in Serial Uncut. Bad Girl + Truck Stop + Serial = Serial Uncut.
