Greetings on this wet and windy Sunday (at least it is ‘oop north in the UK). I’ve collated my four remaining short pieces (don’t ask about the rest, it’s a sore subject) into a collection that’s now available for purchase on Amazon, and free on Kindle Unlimited.
The reasons why are two fold:
- I felt that $0.99 was too much to charge for one short story, even if a couple of them are over 10,000 words long. Amazon won’t let me put them on cheaper, otherwise I would.
- It’s a little snippet of something for people to (hopefully) enjoy before Auran Chronicles #2 comes out in a few months.
Anyway hope you enjoy, if you read any I’d suggest Mirror Man, which is my personal favourite still. Coma Companion is my first ever published piece from way back in 2005 but it still holds a special place in the story vault.
A collection of four creepy stories exploring various elements of the supernatural, from the subtle, growing dread of Mirror Man to the mind-bending revelations of Cogito Ergo Sum, Shattered Realms is a must for fans of the Twilight Zone or the Outer Limits.
All four stories have been published previously as stand alones, but are now available for the first time as a collection.
The Mirror Man
Steven Cree wakes up at the same time, every night. With every passing day, injuries appear on his body, cracks appear on his walls, and the trees that surround his estate seem to encroach upon his home.
But worst of all, it’s the man in the mirror. The face that was himself, but is slowly changing into that of a stranger.
Cogito Ergo Sum
“…you never wonder how you’ll react to a defining moment in history until you experience it for yourself…”
Gareth Young makes a tweak to the most powerful experiment on earth based on just a hunch. The result is a revelation of the most profound, but is all it seems to be?
The Reality Trip
A routine flight takes a turn for the supernatural as Chris finds himself in an altered reality where the world he knows no longer exists, his identity is in doubt and where terrifying beings hunt him down.
When Doctor David Baines creates a machine that allows him to directly enter the mind of a comatose patient, he encounters a twisted reality that, rather than being the inner workings of one person’s mind, is actually a limbo world beyond life, and death, in unexpected forms, awaits the unwary.
