Mark Leslie’s “The Ritual of the Drawing” is set in the small town of Birks Falls, where tradition is sacred, and the unwanted dregs of society are not a threat as long as the town has Mr. McNeal and the ritual of the drawing.
After all, under the proper circumstances, a vampire is a wonderful thing for a town to have.

About the Author
Mark Leslie would be the first person to admit he’s still afraid of the monster under his bed, and he continues to channel that fear into most of his fiction. Mark’s dark fiction is often compared to “Twilight Zone” or “Black Mirror” in terms of style, but he usually just adopts the term “horror” when describing the types of tales that he writes. He also writes non-fiction true ghost story tales.
