"Hypnotic, haunting...high-test nightmare fuel " - Richard Chizmar, author of Gwendy's Button Box (with Stephen King).

What's the terrifying secret of the Faces? Are they watching you? Nothing goes right for Harold until he finds the mask from the once-notorious comic strip. Joe Face and his family offered nice smiles no matter the worst that life could throw their way-in the funny pages. But in the real world, someone or something begins following him at night, turning Harold's life inside out, showing him the face of horror. A novella of approximately 100 pages in print.

"Hypnotic, haunting, and compulsively readable, The Faces is high-test nightmare fuel I couldn't turn the pages fast enough." - Richard Chizmar, author of Gwendy's Button Box (with Stephen King) and Chasing the Boogeyman.

"The Faces seems whimsical at first...until the story turns nasty and profoundly disturbing. The social satire is the real horror here, making us dread what lurks behind the faces of our closest friends and loved ones. Another masterful novella from Douglas Clegg." - Norman Prentiss, author of Odd Adventures with Your Other Father and The Apocalypse-a-Day Calendar.

"Exceeds expectations...A suspenseful tale of mounting terror..." -- Rue Morgue Magazine.
