The Other Room - Out Now!


The Other Room 

I'm not one to use exclamation marks in post titles excessively (and multiple exclamation marks are a real no-no) but I feel justified here. (!) Because 'The Other Room' is out - a collection of twelve short stories for your e-reading pleasure.  Here's the same cover image I've been posting a lot, along with some links:

And here's the official blurb:

The Other Room is a collection of weird horror fiction, containing twelve stories of the uncanny and the surreal. 

A naive student finds that his crumbling bedsit can be as haunted as any Gothic mansion.

A man stumbles across another world which is the mirror image of his own.

A young woman who everyone thinks is beautiful wonders why, given what she sees in the mirror each morning.

Influenced by writers such as Ramsey Campbell, Shirley Jackson, and Robert Aickman these tales, like all good horror stories, are as much about the psychology of the protagonist as the fate that awaits them.

The Other Room contains both new and previously published stories that will challenge your conceptions of horror and literary fiction.

Hi James
I'd love to be a guest blogger on your blog. Let me know when you want me to do it. My site is www.paul-mitchell.com.au - I've published a collection, Dodging the Bull, and my stories have appeared in most of Australia's literary journals.
talk soon

If there ever was a time for exclamation marks, now's the time! Nice post, James. Found you from the Amazon thread and am a follower. Cheers, think I'll have a glass of red as well.
