After Sundown

After Sundown

This new anthology contains 20 original horror stories, 16 of which have been commissioned from some of the top in the genre, and 4 of which have been selected from the 100s of stories sent to Flame Tree during a 2-week open submissions window. It is the first of what will hopefully become an annual, non-themed horror anthology of entirely original stories, showcasing the very best short fiction that the genre has to offer.

Carnipunk anthology

Carnipunk

Publisher:
The traveling carnival is a leftover of a bygone era, a curiosity lurking on the outskirts of town. It is a place of contradictions—the bright lights mask the peeling paint; a carnie in greasy overalls slinks away from the direction of the Barker’s seductive call. It is a place of illusion—is that woman’s beard real? How can she live locked in that watery box?  And while many are tricked by sleight of hand, there are hints of something truly magical going on. One must remain alert and learn quickly the unwritten rules of this dark show. To beat the carnival, one had better have either a whole lot of or a whole lot of guns—or maybe some magic of one’s own.  Featuring stories grotesque and comical, outrageous and action-packed, Carniepunk is the first anthology to channel the energy and attitude of into the bizarre world of creaking machinery, twisted myths, and vivid new magic.

Book Review: Hex Life Anthology

Hex Life: Wicked New Tales of Witchery

Publisher:
These are tales of wickedness… stories of evil and cunning, written by today’s women you should fear. Includes tales from Kelley Armstong, Rachel Caine and Sherrilyn Kenyon, writing in their own bestselling universes. Hex Life: Wicked New Tales of Witchery will take the classic tropes of tales of witchcraft and infuse them with fresh, feminist perspective and present-day concerns–even if they’re set in the past. These witches might be monstrous, or they might be heroes, depending on their own definitions. Even the kind hostess with the candy cottage thought of herself as the hero of her own story. After all, a woman’s gotta eat. Bring out your dread.

Over to you

Horror short stories are perfect for the spooky season as they give us that brief moment of spine chilling terror just like telling ghost stories at a camp fire, but with the bonus of being snuggled up warm in our beds. The great thing about these anthologies is you can take your scares in small doses and mingled with other tales so that you don’t get overwhelmed if you don’t like things too scary. Just flip the page and you’re thrown into another world, another story as a different author takes you on another tale of magic and wonder.
