Tomorrow, I will post the next installment of Children's Books That Never Were. Prepare to be shocked, or at least, mildly grossed out.

Don't know if these would qualify as entries, but here are a couple of authentically nonexistent titles:

Preston and the Starving Shadows
Preston and the Upside-down Face
Preston and the Ghost of the Gourd
Preston and the Laughing This
Preston and the Twitching That

They're all the ouvre of an imaginary children's writer named Alice (nolastnamegiven) from a Thomas Ligotti story called "Alice's Last Adventure," -- one of the creepiest horror stories I've ever read and the only one I've ever encountered that is actually about writing children's books.

It's one of those stories that really has to be read twice to be appreciated. If you can, check it out. You might enjoy it.

Or...you might not.

TheMoy: Just the titles along give me the SHIVERS. I'll look up "Alice's Last Adventure," pronto. Thanks!
