Skull Lake – Story Background


“Skull Lake” was orignally based on an urban legend I heard about a group of kids who committed a crime at a local lake, and this lake took on the shape of a skull at nighttime. But more than that, this story is really a story about guilt and how it can follow you throughout your life. Guilt is one of the sources for hauntings you find in many ghost stories.
