Listening to the Other Side by Justin Woolley

A blog about talking to the dead

I never intended this story to be written, let alone shared on the internet. It was my friend Wally Sharpe who eventually convinced me otherwise. Relentless as always in pursuit of an idea, he argued that not only should I set the record straight about the events of twelve years ago, but that what happened to me was of deep . . .

Fresh Monsters by Mike

I like horror stories. You do too. How convenient. I write, horror, thrillers, speculative, crime, short stories, flash fiction – different towns of writing, but they’re all in the same province. It’s literary junk food, but I still think it tastes pretty good. Feel free to take a gander. Let me know what you think. If you keep . . .

MATERIAL THINGS

Editor’s First Impression

By Palladian, editor, author of Super

Jul 4, 2013: This is a collection of stand-alone short stories, many of which have fantasy/horror elements. The other thing they have a lot of is angst, fear, longing, and regret. It’s not my usual read, but the author has a true gift for creating stories and moments that bring these things out, and then holding them up to the light like fine blown glass.
