The Haunted House - "Over here, I tell you! The coffin is over here!" Mona rolled her eyes up at Frank. Idiot. He was acting if he'd found the secret entrance in the wall rather than her. She had a good mind to turn back and let Frank stand his chances of being sacrificed by the coven of she-male vampires that inhabited the dungeon of the castle. . . . continue
The Crying Veil - Anna's eyes widened in terror as the wedding veil she had situated on her head was suddenly covered with blood - drops of blood. She detected crying, pitiful crying as if someone in her head were in agony.... continue
WEREWOLF ON THE PROWL
by Sky Taylor
Shadow Rider - a werewolf story found only at Sky At Dawn
The night was young. The yellow sun had vacated the cloudless sky a short hour ago leaving behind a shroud of intense heat.
Even so, Cally sat close to the blue-blaze of the campfire, a paisley blanket surrounding every inch of her small form except her face. Something was out there, mingled with the darkness. This 'thing' had been staring at her for what seemed to be an eternity, in actuality - mere minutes.
This child of hell lay waiting in the shadows, allowing time for her fire to dance and die - to seize the final moment in time.....her time.
There was a rush through her system, as if she'd taken a sudden plunge from an aeroplane, in a parachute.
Her thoughts circled as she remembered the man back at the camping supply store in the park earlier today who had seemed overly-interested in her. He had insisted on loading her tiny sack of supplies in her jeep, asking her a volley of questions in the process.
'Where was she planning to camp? How long was she staying? Was she camping alone? Did she happen to have a pet with her?"
Fear rushed through her body and seemed to lodge in her throat. Her worst fears were realized as the subject of her thoughts stepped from the shadows, the reeds lodged along the bed of the river bank echoing like distant drums as the wind kicked up simultaneously with her fear.
He had returned for the kill, a rifle lodged in his gloved hand, aimed directly at Cally as she sat shaking by the light of the campfire in the hot breath of Summer Evening.
When she would have screamed, a loud growl like that of a giant wolf penetrated the air from behind her, the stranger cocking the rifle and firing a shot that echoed along the riverbank, joining the haunting echoes of the reeds.
Cally watched in shock as the large wolf fell mid-air and landed not two feet from her.
As she fought to recover, the stranger ambled quickly to the kill.
As Cally viewed him with wide eyes he told her, "Third werewolf this month."
Moral of the story: Sometimes, our worst fears are not in front of us, rather behind us.
The Vampire & The Cowboy - He had ridden so far, so long, that Jack's thighs still smelled of smoked leather from the saddle that sat astride his twenty-year old mare, Ladonya. And the horse wasn't happy about the extended ride. She had been blowing through her nostrils at him for the last ten minutes, the last gust a gnat's ass from Jack's ear. continue

Vampire For Hire - It wasn’t easy, obtaining a decent night job. In the first place, not many businesses were willing to do interviews for the night slots during the late evening hours, after the sun went down.

The Vampire Bat, el Desmodus rotundas - Blood sucking demon? Flying devil? Parasite from hell? Could these cruel descriptions be related to our little winged friend, the Vampire Bat?

- Although our free party planner centers around All Hallows Eve, it has a lot of really neat ideas that can be incorporated into gothic & scary parties. Let's Party
Sky At Dawn sets the focus on vampires - funny, bumbling vampires. However, take note that a few of our tales measure a 4 on the Spooky Scale. Other than being a bit scary, all are 'wholesome'. Well, perhaps that's not the correct word to use. Let's just say that the language and content is 'nice', not naughty. Just scary.
However, 99% of our content is humor and on that note, please know that we cannot be responsible for those that laugh themselves to death.
