Dark Tales from the Den

 Dona Fox


Find within seventeen unsettling tales that will ooze under your skin, cozy little tales that twist slowly strange and violent-delightfully dark. There’s a mean doll, a box full of bones-and newspaper clippings, a bank robbery gone horribly wrong-for almost everyone. Daddy’s last train, and the train Uncle Frank catches again and again, a haunted carousel that sparks up the night, an alien abduction, a meeting with the evil Lilith. Foxes. A girl you wouldn't want to meet in a bar-if you value your ink, a drug of the future with certain finality about it. Many graves dug, barns to die in, and ghosts and more ghosts. Seep into this book.

"Dona Fox had me with her first story, 'Smoky Martini.' Creepy and atmospheric, it sets the stage for Dark Tales from the Den, her new collection of shorts. My favorites, along with 'Smoky Martini,' were 'Crawlspace'--suitably claustrophobic and disturbing--and the devastating 'Grace at the End.' Fox shows her deft hand for creating atmosphere and mood in these 18 shorts. Very much recommended!-

City of Steam

newavalonNew Avalon

Love and Loss in the City of Steam

New Avalon is a city filled with stories. They stain every brick, and echo in every doorway. The best stories aren't found out where anyone might trip over them, though. The good ones are found down dark alleys and in hidden alcoves, washed up on night time shores and for sale in midnight markets. These are the secret hearts of the City of Steam, and like all the best secrets they fill you up while leaving you wanting more.

Come and take a tour of a place where everyday miracles and personal damnations walk hand-in-hand. A place where the light of modern science burns bright enough to cast shadows you can fall into. Plumb the mysteries of the Grates, and see what horrifying, beautiful secrets linger in the steam-shrouded souk. If you look closely you'll be able to find true love for pennies, only slightly damaged in Love is a Broken Clock. Walk the moonlit streets of Headsman's Wharf, and hear a heartbreaking ghost story that may or may not be true in The Legend of Black Jack Guillotine.

Maybe you'd prefer a flight of fancy? Then listen closely to the story of a maiden voyage of a very different kind in Flight of Icarus. Ten tales of love and loss grace these pages; ten secret stories hidden in quiet niches and saved for the truly curious. Those who will accept no substitute, and who want the real thing.

Be warned, when flowers grow in the City of Steam they may not be quite what you expect.
