Horror screenwriter and comic book writer, Mark Wheaton recently began self-publishing horror novellas for download to the Amazon Kindle. When he started getting requests for a print edition, he decided to self-publish a collection of the first four stories. The collection is titled: Four Nails in the Coffin.
Bones: This is the story of Bones, a seven-year old veteran cadaver dog with the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police whose specialties range from human remains recovery to public order enforcement. When an outbreak of dangerous parasites begins bringing the dead back to life, Bones’ nose must go into overdrive to prevent disaster and save mankind in this apocalyptic tale of nature run amok.
Sunday Billy Sunday: When a Dallas-area priest, Father Billy Acosta, believes he’s been shown a miracle by God, instead of being uplifted, ensuing weeks of doubt make him demand to see a second one. Driven crazy by what he feels is God’s silence, he heads to his church’s East Texas summer camp to massacre 99 kids – one at a time – to bring about Divine Intervention. Among the campers are four 14 year-olds – Phil, Mark, Faith and Maia – who are forced to come of age in the Texas woods, cut off from civilization, as their friends begin dying in horrific fashion, convinced as they are that the Devil has come to Earth and is slaughtering the faithful…

What he and Marcie first believe is merely symptomatic of a faulty memory, soon becomes a paranoid journey into murder, missing children and madness…
Night Of The Scorpions: Hundreds of people die crossing the U.S.-Mexico border every year. Some say it’s the heat, some say it’s bandits, still others think it’s the rushing waters of the Rio Grande, dragging people to a wet and lonely grave. What they don’t know is there’s a terrible secret roaming the South Texas deserts in an endless quest for food. While pursuing three escaped convicts, in one night, Presidio County Deputy Sheriff Sarah Hopkins is forced to team up with a small group of bounty hunters and would-be immigrants as they’re plunged into a nightmarish journey of survival, deep in the heart of a desert hell…
