"The new owner of a home that holds a terrible surprise. An insomniac whose quest for sleep leads you to a horrifying discovery. The parent of a little girl who holds the keys of damnation and salvation in her tiny hands. You are all these people, and more. In this brave collection, author Jeffery X Martin makes the reader the main character in fifteen nerve-grinding new stories, filled with horror, humor and jagged pieces of human nature."
Both books are available on the excellent and revolutionary Godless Horror app, which is a must have for horror fans who prefer e-readers over paperbacks. For you physical media fans, Cheesesteak is available right now and Short Stories About You should be live within the next couple of days.
Starting in issue six of Stranger With Friction, we are excited to announce we will be serializing the new novella by Carter Johnson called Tales from Behind the Counter!
Dropping next month, April 21st, on Godless and Amazon, St Rooster Books is proud to present Saint's Blood by Ryan Bradley! Want a reason to be excited? Check out what Owen King, author of Double Feature: A Novel and Sleeping Beauties (with Stephen King) has to say about it;
"Miracles do happen in Ryan Bradley's dark and unrelenting Saint's Blood, but be warned; they come at no small price. Saint's Blood is an impressive debut. I enjoyed it and I'm excited to see what Ryan Bradley writes next."
There's just over a month left to get your submissions in to us for No One Likes a Tourist: An Anthology of Dark Tourism. What is Dark Tourism? It's going to the site of tragedy, disaster, murder, or other dark events rather than going to Disney World for your vacation. I'm talking about touring Chernobyl or taking the Jeffery Dahmer serial killer tour. For this anthology, I'm asking you to take this concept and create your own dark tourism scenario. People going to bad places and having bad things happen to them. As always; no sexist, racist, homophobic, or transphobic material. I really don't like the rape-revenge sub-genre either, and I'm unlikely to accept such a story. Otherwise, go nuts!
Word count: 3-5 thousand words
Payment: $20 and a contributor copy or the equivalent of $20 worth of contributor copies
Deadline: May 1st, 2022
