BEFORE YOU BLOW OUT THE CANDLE


As regular listeners know, I do occasional like to spin a spooky yarn or two, a little while ago I was asked if I would like to contribute a tale to a new collection of horror stories. Naturally I jumped at the chance, and now the book is finally in the shops! 

It is entitled Before You Blow Out The Candle, and this new anthology of horror tales was edited by  Marc Damian Lawler. It is available in paperback or ebook  

It features mostly work by new writers but also including a couple of old masters in there too - in particular I'm am delighted to see Adrian Cole's classic British Cthulhu Mythos tale get a long overdue reprinting here! The full contents list is as follows - 
  • Grave Warnings by Marc Damian Lawler
  • Red Eye to Nightfolk   by A.P. Sessler
  • Fear Makes Good Materialists by Lamuel Caleb Gonzalez
  • Chiaroscuro  by Brad C. Hodson
  • They Say You Should Never Go Back by David Little
  • A Troublesome History by Jim Moon
  • Steepe Holm  by Vince Stadon
  • A Hard Day's Fright by Marc Damian Lawler
  • The Trial for Murder  by Charles Dickens
  • The Horror Under Penmire by Adrian Cole
