ROAD KILLS is a collection of short tales of dark comic horror from the mind of Isaac Thorne. These stories are all connected to travel, to the road. After all, it is always lurking there, quiet and dark, just waiting for you to come out for a drive or a walk or a jog. However you next confront it, the road is already there, plotting.

himself a lover of books, music, movies, and other forms of pop
culture phenomenon. His philosophy on his life is that it’s all one
giant experiment.
