About the Book

Don’t let your guard down. Don’t close your eyes. And whatever you do, don’t look back.This is the world of Peripheral, where horrors lurk just beyond the edge of your vision, and the worlds of the seen and unseen collide with terrifying consequences.

While four friends discover the perfect place for an afternoon picnic, a man discovers his secret superpowers in an unexpected way—and a young girl glimpses something out of the corner of her eye that will change her life forever.  These short stories delve into the darkest recesses of the human experience, one gruesome tale serves as the thread that will bind them forever—culminating in a shocking conclusion that will have you questioning everything you see in your peripheral vision.

In the debut short story collection of author Sylvester Pilgrim, nothing is what it seems, and everything is connected. So join supernatural forces, ruthless killers, and emerging faces of evil on a nightmarish journey you won’t soon forget—a roller coaster ride of suspense and surprise from beginning to end.

These are not for the faint-of-heart, but you’ll remember the ride.
