Welcome to the Dark Coast of Florida, my friends. Take a dangerous journey through the realms of the surreal and macabre, somewhere between the twisted regions of history and superstition, where imagination keeps pace with the moon, days become perpetual night, and neither offer comfort or peace. Itís the frontline where the forces of light and darkness, good and evil, clash at the shadowy edge of the inexplicable. Here, far beyond the utterly weird and supernatural, the human bonds of love and spirit will be tested in these three stories from the mind of Michael J.P. Whitmer.  

All the Toppings: In search of her missing brother, Lonnie goes undercover in a pizzeria, only to tangle with the Timucuan Sun God that lives in the oven.

Canvas of Shadows: Justinís inspiration for painting is but a blank canvas until a black cat thrusts him into a surreal world of stolen loot and bad dreams.

The Curse of Dark Pointe Shores: Women go missing from this popular Spring Break destination, and local shrimper Captain Jones knows thereís something in the water thatís not of this earth.
