There were some terrific stories entered in Stevie Turner’s competition. They are all listed in this post, along with the announcement of the winner. I have no quarrel with Stevie’s decision – the story she chose was the one I also rated best of the bunch. If you like a good read, this is for you.

I have no idea what a ‘gif’ is, and I haven’t clicked any of those links. But I did enjoy reading Ms Allen’s apocalyptic tale in the anthology. If you haven’t yet acquired a copy I urge you to do so. It’s great for dipping in to, just like a box you might find under a bed or in an attic, full of surprises, some to make your skin crawl, or the hairs on the back of you neck to stand up, all revealing the darker side of the human imagination.

Here’s another post from one of my fellow authors on The Box Under The Bed. Her story is a clever tale of a man with a certain attitude towards women getting his ‘come uppance’. Couldn’t be more topical just now. If you are one of the 2500 people who downloaded the digital edition whilst it was free the other day, you are in for a treat. Do please show your gratitude by telling all your friends about it and drop a review on Amazon and Goodreads. Source: Kidney Collection: I’d rather be the worst of the best than silent.

This is why I’m excited about being part of this ‘scary story’ project. My story is based on real events that took place in the North Atlantic in December 1835, involving an Irish ship en-route from Nova Scotia to Limerick. Source: “Writers not helping each other?

Juliet Nubel was born in Glasgow but now live in France. She began revealing her writing to the public just a year ago, as she explains below. She is one of the 20 authors who have contributed to the anthology “The Box Under The Bed”. Her story is heart-breakingly tragic rather than “scary” in the usually accepted sense. It occupies just two pages at the end of which you find yourself asking “what would I have done in that situation?” A situation, by the way, faced by many people every day.

Here’s how one of my fellow authors in the anthology The Box Under The Bed was excited by the prospect. Hers is the first story in the book. Called ‘Passion’ it describes the experience of a young medical student on holiday in Cancun and the ‘fun’ she has with two ‘up for it’ holiday makers. It will make your skin crawl.

Did I happen to mention that I’ve the honour of being included in an anthology due out on Kindle 1st October and available now in paperback? Well it seems someone with a long pedigree in horror/paranormal/sci-fi wants a review copy. I’m not getting too excited until I see what she has to say about it. Source: Check this out. Holy Crap!
