I am happy to announce the launch of the Corpse Honey Facebook page! I've been working on compiling posts and graphics for the last couple of weeks, but didn't send out invitations until yesterday. You can find the page here:
Corpse Honey, Facebook
This page will be used for updates, excerpts of works in progress, things that may have inspired a particular story and posts for general interest. The book is going to be a follow-up to Scenes from the Carnival Lounge, and will follow the same general format and theme (horror/odd tales), but will likely be shorter (containing ten stories instead of fifteen, and no essays or poems). It's my hope that this improves reader satisfaction with the book, and will make it a little less daunting to read.
A tentative list of stories is as follows:
"The Bark Men"
Story is set in Ouray, Colorado, and told from the perspective of a teenage boy and the summer he spent with his aunt and cousin... and the strange creatures that they encountered in the woods.
"On the Other Side of the Sky"
For Sam, it was supposed to be just another business trip. But then, nobody expects to die, right? Probably the most surreal of the stories in CH.
"In Unison with a Dying Earth"
What book of horror stories would be complete without a vampire tale?
"In Unison..." tells the story of a lamia and her search for meaning and redemption in the wake of the apocalypse.
What happens to the possessed after they are exorcised? Dispossessed tells the story of those poor souls who are forever tainted by their possession and reveals the Devil's end game.
"Where the Lower Things Crept/The Dust Bunny Monster"
The story of Samuel Mayer and the torments he endures at the hands of The Dust Bunny Monster.
Not all war criminals were punished in The Hague. Story is set in the former Yugoslavia. A tale about the casualties of war and the penance some must pay.
"The Hive Mind/Tin Soldiers"
Solomon only wants to finds his fellow villagers. But in order to do so, he must confront the ancient evils that lie ever vigilant and deadly in Huachuca Woods.
*(this story is currently under consideration for a writing contest and, depending on the outcome of that competition, may or may not be included).
