This trip is a final pilgrimage for her, a chance to visit her father’s much-loved forest on the anniversary of his death. At least, that’s what Anna planned. A lot has changed in the last decade. A fence has been constructed around the wood’s perimeter and the campers’ parking lot has been closed. Inside the forest, Anna finds trees that have been scarred with deep gashes, almost as though they’d been attacked. As she pushes deeper into the woods and daylight fades, she starts to hear strange and horrific animal calls… and the creature that calls the woods home begins to stalk its prey. Whose Woods These Are is a half-hour story, perfect for a chilling read late at night.

    REVIEW: WHOSE WOODS THESE ARE by Darcy Coates Okay: Australian author Darcy Coates is officially one of my "go to" authors when I'm in the mood for chills with an imaginative twist. Prior to reading this short story, I had only read GHOST CAMERA. [I've now added THE HAUNTING OF GILLESPIE HOUSE and CRAWLSPACE].

    I'm really enjoying Coates' short stories. Not surprised she lists creepypastas as influences because the stories I've read have bits in common with those and things I've read on r/nosleep. Very satisfying and definitely recommended if you like creepy woods! I'm really enjoying Coates' short stories.

    Incredibly Creepy I must say for a short story this is fairly creepy and chalked full of don't go into the woods. You want a short scare, I recommend this tale to all, especially those who like endings with a cliff hanger.

    overall, I enjoyed it, I thought the ending was well done. unfortunately, as much as I want to like this author because her twists on things are wonderful, I don't often feel the building suspense. overall, I enjoyed it, I thought the ending was well done. unfortunately, as much as I want to like this author because her twists on things are wonderful, I don't often feel the building suspense.

    Another home run by Darcy Coates. This story sticks to your brain a lot more than Dead Lake does. It sticks there and gives you that icky feeling for a while. This sounds bad, but since it was a horror novella it foes its job. This story is about a 20 page tale of Anna who is going into the woods to honor her father on the anniversary of his death as his favorite thing to do was camp. Things get bat s*** from there. I have a few more short stories from Darcy Coats to finish. If they keep on the Another home run by Darcy Coates. This story sticks to your brain a lot more than Dead Lake does.
