"Sheer spooky fun." ―Kirkus Reviews

Two best friends.  One goes missing.  And a paranormal podcast that hopes to reunite them, but not before unleashing horror in many forms.

When Zeus’s best friend gets trapped inside the House of Mystery and Mirrors at Carnival Nocturne, Tobin’s existence is erased from the world, and Zeus is the only person who remembers that his best friend ever lived. Zeus is determined to return to the carnival and rescue his friend—that is, if he can only find it.

Together with Tobin’s sister, Jana, Zeus concocts a plan to conjure Tobin’s captors on Halloween night via his paranormal podcast, Odd Occurrences. Listeners are invited to call in and share their supernatural experiences with the audience. From ghostly encounters to haunted dolls, terrifying escape rooms with deadly consequences to alien lake creatures, Zeus hopes that someone’s story will produce a clue that leads him to the mysterious carnival—and ultimately, back to Tobin. But little does Zeus know that Tobin is almost out of time.

Praise for Odd Occurrences: Chilling Stories of Horror

Praise for Odd Occurrences:

"The tales feature spine chillers like creepy dolls and homicidal ghosts alongside more contemporary terrors, like simulation theory and an escape room… Sheer spooky fun."
