This week I am highlighting The Collection and Other Dark Tales. I received a wonderful review that I want to share here.
“Tracy Carbone has accomplished something that I was beginning to think would never be done. That is to say, her book “The Collection and other dark tales” rivals the short works of Roald Dahl, in my opinion. I’d read a collection of Dahl’s short stories many years ago and have never found another author whose work seemed to have the same undefinable magic as that which he infused into his stories. Then *BOOM*, along comes Tracy L Carbone who pulled it off… in spades. I devoured it like a slobbering ravenous pig, thoroughly masticating every tasty morsel and then I licked the plate. It was utterly delicious and I’m ready to see what she’s served up for desert.”
After those kindly words, there’s not much more I can add. Buy your copy now and see if you agree.
My long awaited (by me) short story collection is now available in print and on Kindle. The Collection and Other Dark Tales will be up on BN.com soon. My publisher, Shadowridge Press, has outdone himself this time. He’s put together eighteen of my stories, some old and some brand-new, in a stunning presentation. What’s great about Shadowridge, is that he gets a feel for the content of the book and designs the layout to match the theme. The cover is a good representation of the subtle eeriness of the stories, but he also picks just the right fonts, just the right graphics.
Here is a description of the contents:
The Collection and Other Dark Tales is an eclectic mix of horrific and uplifting tales of the human condition in all its frailty. You will not find gritty, violent horror or torture chambers here. Nor will you find spinoffs of the traditional werewolves, vampires or zombies. What you will find are stories that will bore deep into your heart and mind with psychological twists; where long dead loved ones coming back to haunt…and to save. You’ll find a grisly apartment building with unholy tenants, sociopathic children, jealous mothers – both living and dead, the truth about snow angels, and lost love that reaches out beyond the grave. Predators and prey all vie to tell their stories in these pages.
This compilation of cautionary tales tells of humanity in all its beauty and ugliness. And there is no greater horror than that.
