The Night Blogger: The Graveyard Game And Other Cemetery Plots by Al Bruno III

Stalking a world of secrets and nightmares...

The Graveyard Game was a ceremony born of the Internet. As far as I was concerned it was half shadowy rumors and half outright lies, but the chatter on my blog had been enough to make me want to see a game for myself, even if just to debunk it. My name is Brian Foster and some people call . . .
