Fancy a #FREE download of ‘BOX: A Psychological Horror’ by Matt Shaw?

Published June 25, 2017 by Shadow Girl

I killed a man so it is only right I am put to death…


The execution was scheduled and the last meal consumed.
The coolness of the poisons entering the blood system
slowed the heart rate and sent him on the way to Judgement.
He had paid for his crime with years on Death Row waiting for this moment –
now he would pay for them again as the judgment continued…

Matt Shaw,  author of Sick B*stards, PORN and 2016: A Year of Horror and Pain, is giving us a #FREE DOWNLOAD of this short, psychological horror.  HURRY! Limited Time Offer!!

ZAC’S HAUNTED HOUSE – A Visual Novel by Dennis Cooper

Published July 27, 2016 by Shadow Girl

CINEMATIC LITERATURE

Dennis Cooper has broken the cool people’s internet with Zac’s Haunted House.
It’s part of a “cycle-in-progress of novels” inspired by visual artist Zac Farley.

#ZHH DESCRIPTION

Dennis Cooper’s tenth novel, [#ZHH], bears all of the earmarks of his legendary and controversial work – intricate formal & stylistic play, disturbing content, an exploration of the borderline between fantasy and reality, concern for the emotions and dilemmas of youth, etc. – but it is both something unique in his body of writing and possibly something of a world’s first in the novel genre itself.

Instead of gathering materials from language, sentences, and the developmental character and narrative possibilities allowed and restricted by written fiction, Cooper has turned his characteristic inventiveness on the animated gif, employing gifs’ tightly wound, looping visual possibilities, nervous rhythms, tiny storylines, and their status as dismembered, twitching eye candy to compose a short novel of unexpected complexity, strangeness, poetry and comedy.

“Zac’s Haunted House” is as fun and eerie to explore as its namesake attraction, and, the more closely one searches and decodes its carefully detailed sequences and construction, a deep and fraught fiction puzzle.

AVAILABLE NOW as a FREE DOWNLOAD or to VIEW ONLINE

Rejected cover art – traumatizing to adult readers.

Keven Strange kicks off the event with his dystopian fantasy novelette THE HUMANS UNDER THE BED. It’s been described as “Monsters, Inc. meets Full Metal Jacket if directed by David Cronenberg.”

cover-2

500 years after monsters wiped out the human race, a quiet calm has settled over the population of nightmare creatures that go bump in the night. They work their monster jobs, raise their monster families, tend to their monster homes, and generally enjoy the peace and prosperity of life without their sworn enemies, the human scourge, that so blighted the land for so many centuries.
In fact, the only inhabitants of this new monster world that even still speak of human kind are the children who share hushed secret fairy tales about evil humans coming up from underneath their beds, pulling the little monsters to their deaths. But of course these are just stories. Of course all the awful humans are dead. Or are they?

DANNY BOY by Tonia Brown

Published July 8, 2014 by Shadow Girl

DANNY BOY is a short story written by TONIA BROWN, for
Dark Valentine | Issue 4 | Spring 2011

PicsArt_1404872881061

Daniel Brewster tries not to panic as he paces around the corpse of the old woman. He could hear Mike’s voice in his mind… “Get the job done, Danny-Boy! What’s done is done.” His brother’s voice doesn’t help to calm him down, though.
With his brother is in jail, and his mamma – who resembles this old woman in a remarkable way, off in the home where Mike sent her five years ago, Danny is lonely.
At home, he sorts through the meager haul that he lifted from the old woman. He’d even removed the ring from her slowly cooling finger.
Thirty bucks. Thirty measly dollars, and a few trinkets that couldn’t be worth much of anything. The ring he took off of the old woman’s finger, though… THAT was pretty snazzy.
Was it worth her life?
Danny is feeling woozy. He forgot to eat, and his body was chanting ‘pay the price, pay the price…’ Mike said that big guys like him needed to watch their sugar. Mike said that low blood sugar would make him feel really bad.
As he reaches out to grab an apple, his hand brushes across something else, something that’s definitely NOT an apple!
He touches …wth?! The old woman’s face?!
That’s not possible!
She’s dead! I killed her!
Danny Boy cries, and cries, and cries. He misses his brother, and wants him to come home – he’d get that old woman to leave!

When Danny answers the ringing phone the next morning, he’s relieved, and surprised, to hear Mike’s voice on the other end. Mike has a big surprise for his baby brother!

Danny Boy lowers the phone in his hand, and slowly turns to look down the hallway – and at the bloody footprints .

The links for this issue, the ones that I’ve had for ages, just decided to NOT work anymore. They were working a week ago, but… Not anymore. ::sigh::

ABOUT DARK VALENTINE ~
Dark Valentine is a quarterly journal devoted entirely to dark fiction, which we define as any story in any genre that is disturbing, provocative, haunting, scary, dangerous, or any combination of those things.
Think of classic stories like “The Mummy’s Paw,” “The Open Window,” “The Tell-Tale Heart,” and “The Lady or the Tiger?” Think of Jack London’s “To Build a Fire,” William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily,” Harlan Ellison’ “I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream,” J.D. Salinger’s “A Perfect Day for Bananafish,” and Tanith Lee’s “Because Our Skins are Finer.”
The world is a dangerous place, as full of shadows and moonlight as it is sun and blue sky. We want the stories that come from the dark places—words that sear and scar and bewitch and bedazzle. Words that are as dangerous to hear as they are to tell.
Tell us a story.
