A blizzard cripples an isolated stretch of US Highway where freezing to death would be a mercy. An antique broker holds the internet in the palm of his hand and learns what really brought the system down. In the forests of upstate Connecticut, a pair of college students visit the site of legendary hauntings. Welcome to the Vault. Phil Rossi, author and twisted mind behind Crescent, brings you a collection of stories that will take you on a terror-fueled ride from the cold abyss of space to your own backyard. The anthology includes all 7 original Crescent Vignettes, new tales from the Crescent Universe, and many stories in between. "Phil Rossi has taken the podcast novel market by storm. His twisted visions of a Lovecraftian far-future reads like Phillip K. Dick meets David Seltzer. Someone is going make a ton of cash with this guy." --Scott Sigler, Best-selling author of Infected, Earthcore, and Ancestor "Phil [Rossi] combines classic space operatic sci-fi with horror in a way Hollywood and many authors have completely failed to do in past years." --Matt Wallace, two-time parsec-winning author of the Failed Cities Monologues and the short fiction collection the Next Fix.

Best tales I've heard in years.
I have really enjoyed listening to these audiobooks over the last few weeks, finding myself laughing as well as re-assessing the dark spaces around me whilst in Phil Rossi’s world. I would and have been recommending these to everyone who loves scaring themselves in this genre. A brilliant set of audiobooks and for free, what more could you ask for. He’s a man to look out for in the book shops.
