Ghosts Can Bleed by Tracie McBride

The Indie Book of the Day for 23rd of December, 2012!

Genre: Science Fiction, Short Story

Alien landscapes and mythic societies…creatures of the night and the more terrifying monsters of the human psyche… Be warned: Ghosts Can Bleed… but it’s not just the blood you should be worried about… Last Chance To See – what if you had a chance to attend your own funeral? A reincarnation facility offers this opportunity, but you won’t be quite as your family remembered… House Arrest – Angela misses the social event of the year when she realises that there’s no place like home- and no dietary aid in the world like it, dahlings! Killing A Goddess – The Goddess demands a sacrifice, and Laura is a willing volunteer. It is a great honour for the five young men chosen to assist in the ritual. But do they really know what they are letting themselves in for? Ghosts Can Bleed – Maurice knows, because he is one. DreamCatcher – will prevent bad dreams coming through to you. But what do you do with the nightmares that are caught in it? What if you could return them to their owners? Rush Hour – Virgil retreads Dante’s Inferno, twenty-first century style. Wasps, tornadoes and dirty nappies block his path – and that’s before the motorway… Marked – being scarred by lightning is like being touched by the hand of God. This divine spark is essential, because only the Marked can see the creatures that hunger for us… Blue Screen of Death – Sara’s dead. Again. With Heaven’s computer system failing, and God on holiday, it’ll take a genius hacker to fix it. Problem is, he’s not on Heaven’s database… Diagnosis – all aspects of human health can be scientifically measured, analysed and assessed. But there’s one measure Dr Chad has neglected to notice… By turns terrifying, darkly comic, surreal and stomach-churning, these forty one stories and poems from award-winning author Tracie McBride open the veins of the world to show humanity in a different – and much darker – light.

If you go into the woods by David Gaughran

Book Description

If you go into the woods by David Gaughran

If You Go Into The Woods is a collection of two unsettling short stories. The title story is set in Caslav, a small town 60 miles east of Prague, Czech Republic. Jiri Beranek is drawn to a nearby forest, captivated by birds hidden high in the trees. Each time he enters, his desire to see the mysterious creatures is checked by his fear of the dark. When he finally forces himself to go farther, he finds a new reason to be afraid. This story was first published by The Delinquent (UK) then selected by Short Story America for inclusion in their anthology of their best stories of 2010.

The bonus story – The Reset Button – is set in Stockholm, Sweden in the depths of winter. Linus Eriksson, a divorced bachelor living alone in his small one-bedroom apartment, is a man with a memory problem: instead of not being able to remember anyone, nobody can remember him. This story is brand new, exclusively available in this e-book. These two creepy tales have a combined length of 4,000 words, or around 16 book pages.

Praise for If You Go Into The Woods:

“There are definite shades of HP Lovecraft in both stories… punchy, entertaining reads with a bit of mental gymnastics thrown in, you can’t go wrong with this one.” — Jenny Mounfield, author of The Ice-cream Man

“Two very well-constructed and thought-provoking tales from an author I know I will be keeping my eyes on. 4.5 stars.” — Heather L. Faville, Doubleshot Reviews

“This is the most professional design – both inside and out – that I have seen since I started reviewing at Sift. The writing in this story is top-notch. The writer has a strong, clean voice. He’s able to sustain an air of mystery and suspense without it feeling cheap.” — Sarah Nicolas, SIFT Book Reviews

“I heartily recommend this masterful piece of work to any and all that thoroughly enjoy the art of the word, and especially to those that have a special place in their hearts for short stories, as I believe this to be a fabulous exponent of the genre.” — LE Olteano, Butterfly Books

“A fine story that looms in the mind of the reader long after the last page … aspirational fiction, the kind of magic realism that reads deliciously, but like a delicate soufflé, is a difficult feat to pull off.” –Matt Ellis, author of Strange As Angels and Lumpen.
