At Close Quarters With Death

A Medley of Short Stories

House of Fear is an anthology of haunted house short stories, edited by Jonathan Oliver and featuring stories by writers such as Adam Nevill, Sarah Pinborough and Christopher Priest. However, this aside, the book is well worth purchasing. We will read each story and confirm its status within 10 working days. Short stories in general are the ultimate tool for a writer to experiment with different methods and styles of storytelling, and to explore a specific idea or situation.

I highly recommend this book to any library collection as it is a great addition, especially for those that are trying to expand their gay fiction as this would be included within the sub-genre, gay horror fiction , cited: Embers Embers pdf, azw (kindle), epub, doc, mobi.

But really, I have the one time slot in the morning, and that's it. I simply don't have it in my schedule right now to consistently concentrate on more than one thing at a time. REALITY: My musing the other day about there not being enough horror short fiction markets is a lot of rot. I think I've hit on something in that Amazon can be a great place to regularly release short stories into the wilds, especially if you HAVE a large readership and they're eager for your next release, but to be honest, I think if I started writing and releasing short stories on my own, they'd receive a collective yawn and not much else epub.
