There were only three rules when Joshua P. Warren began collecting these stories from around the world: they had to be true, they had to be short, and they had to send a shiver down your spine.
It Was a Dark and Creepy Night presents a wide variety of weird and spooky tales about ghosts, UFOs, cryptids, angels, demons, ESP, interdimensional contact and more. Because each tale is short, this eerie little tome is perfect for a subway ride, a plane flight, or a night entertaining guests.

An internationally respected investigator of the unknown, Joshua adds his insight to these strange experiences. Some tales are too odd to easily categorize, but each one simple or complex transformed an ordinary person’s life, revealing a facet of those uncanny phenomena that still leave us wondering…what if?

Imagine if:

  • You met a strange woman who said she remembered Lincoln’s funeral, then vanished . . .
  • You dreamed you were being attacked by a demon and woke up to find scratch marks across your body . . .
  • The face of the person in front of you suddenly transformed into that of a reptilian . . .

    Remember: These and the many other tales in this fascinating book are true, short, and eminently creepy!
