Description

Working at a dead-end retail job in the middle of nowhere can be hard. The long hours. The helpless customers. The enormous eldritch horror living deep below the building. As the only full-time employee at the 24-hour gas station at the edge of town, Jack has pretty much seen it all. But when he decides to start an online journal documenting the bizarre day-to-day occurrences, he unwittingly attracts the attention of much more than just a few conspiracy theorists. 

With the body count steadily on the rise and a dark, ancient force infecting the dreams of everyone around him, Jack will do everything in his power to stay out of the way and mind his own business. After all, he’s just a gas station clerk. It’s not like he’s getting paid enough to wage battle against the nightmarish aberrations plaguing his community. Besides, he already has his hands full attempting to manage all those mysterious lawn gnomes, the mutant raccoons, and the charming phantom cowboy who lives in the bathroom.  

Based on the award-winning creepypasta by GasStationJack, Tales from the Gas Station: Volume One is a love letter to the pioneers of classic horror tailored to a generation that grew up in the era of smartphones and WiFi.

Such a wonderful read

I love the story. I cannot wait to continue to support Jack in the next couple of books. It’s such a shame I have to wait for more, but that makes everything sweeter. Thanks Jack, and MCP for your work

Very Enjoyable Book

Now that I've gone ahead and finished the book, i do one to immediately address my love for this narrator. The narrator ( Mr. CreepyPasta) is an absolute joy to listen too. He is able to bounce between tension and comedy with ease. As for the book itself, I had a few minor issues. I wish the author would not jump around so much, I'm not sure if that tactic is being used to further captivate the reader, but it came across as outright annoying. I don't want to wait to be amazed, especially when they payoff doesnt feel rewarding. Other than that small detail, the book was enthralling.

I love it

I originally listened to MrCreepyPasta's narrations of the original Reddit posts, and bought this, afraid that it would be the same stories. But these go alongside the Reddit stories, helping with some questions and making more. It's incredibly funny and a great mystery story.

Meh

Don't buy this. There are zero spooks. Narrator is fine, he reads with a hilarious deadpan. Story is uninteresting. Imo

One of my most favorite nosleep series!

I absolutely loved the original Reddit stories and when Jack said he was putting out his book I couldn't wait. I bought the book back when it came out and didn't hesitate to buy the audible version.

Tales from the gas station is honestly a lot like an episode of The Twilight Zone (the old one not the new one, haven't watched that one yet.). The story itself is phenomenal and is 100x better when voiced By MCP. MCP bring life and style to all of the characters and breaths life into the story itself.

I absolutely love this book and I love the narrator too! I would definitely recommend to anyone that has a dark sense of humor (or a sense of humor at all) and to anyone who likes hearing strange stories.

Odd Thomas meets Monty Python

Interesting story and narration. Sometimes hard to follow, but think that this was actually intentional.

Perfect blend of horror, humor and strangeness.

I have been a huge fan of these stories since Mr. creepy pasta had short versions on his podcast. This is the first book I've bought outright without using credits in years, and got it the day it was released. can't wait for vol. 2 thru infinity.

Excellent listen - both book and narrator

My friend suggested that I read this book even though it’s unlike anything I read in general or listen -whatever - but I decided to give it a whirl and I was not disappointed that I did. Between the narrator and the story this was a great listen and I can’t wait (hopefully there is one )but can’t wait for the next sequel .. this was an enjoyable listen and it’s like humor with a little bit of scary but not really scary- if that makes sense .. highly recommended!!!
