…Friday the 13th is nothing to fear. Nothing bad happens on this particular day that could happen on any other day.
…However, Friday the 13th is undoubtedly a harbinger of terrible things to come. It is not the day itself one must be concerned about. Rather it’s the weekend of Friday the 13th, plus a couple days after, where lies the real danger.
–from Author G. T. Quilting-Wheeler, in an interview Friday, June 13, 2008.
The author’s synopsis was mocked and ignored until an unexplained, accidental death occurred two days later which claimed the life of an 18-year-old young man.
