Peripheral: Tales of Horror At A Glance
ISBN 978-1941416-037 electronic book 

About the Book

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.

As nineteen 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.

Praise for Peripheral Tales of Horror at a Glance

“Explore the supernatural face of evil.  Meet the wife killer, the avenging ghost, the mailroom creep, the tattooed thug, the suicidal counselor, carnivorous plants, and the emerging demon in fast-moving stories told with a no-nonsense, gritty style that engages, repels, and provokes.  These are not for the faint-of-heart, but you’ll remember the ride.”
                                                                  ~R.R. Brooks, author of the epic fantasy Justi the Gifted

“Sylvester Pilgrim delves into the dark recesses of the human psyche in this short story collection, following a tortuous trail of murder, madness, and mayhem. Those with the fortitude to brave supernatural assignations, gruesome plot twists, and the deadly dance of betrayal and vengeance will enjoy this dystopian diversion through shadowy byways where lust and greed rule the night.”
                    ~Robert G. Ferrell, author of Tangent (Scirlingarra Book 1)
