Open Ended Threat: A Cave Creek Anthology

Edited by Dean Wesley Smith

Cave Creek, Nevada—Where the Unexpected Meets the Real World

In present day Cave Creek, a powerful and dangerous current flows beneath the town’s peaceful and prosperous surface.

Strange, unexplained events long chased residents out of this former mining town nestled in a hidden canyon north of Las Vegas from the very beginning. The first anthology in this series, Bitter Mountain Moonlight, illustrated that.

But now, portals to other timelines appear and disappear in the desert and rocks around town. Sometimes the portals open only for seconds, other times long enough to threaten lives.

The stories in Open Ended Threat recount the stories of those who slip through from the future or the past and explain how the residents keep the town’s secrets.

Cave Creek, Nevada—Where the Unexpected Meets the Real World

A mythical town nestled in a hidden canyon north of Las Vegas, Cave Creek attracts the strange, weird, and inexplicable.

Founded by a few settlers in the waning days of the 19th century, a gold rush in 1900 exploded Cave Creek into a boomtown with more than 8,000 residents.

But right from the beginning, strange events bedevil the residents. Unexplained things that often chase a resident down the valley to safer locations far, far away.

Finally, when the gold and silver play out, the weirdness continues.

The stories in Bitter Mountain Moonlight recount some of the strangest occurrences from the town’s past, and maybe even make you want to visit…
