Cover Revealed for ‘Insanity Tales II: The Sense of Fear’

unnamedBooks & Boos Press is pleased to present the cover for Insanity Tales II: The Sense of Fear. Artist Melinda Phillips created the cover, which plays off of the eye theme from the original Insanity Tales anthology cover. Insanity Tales II: The Sense of Fear will debut in early October.

The collection features eleven stories from six of New England’s finest storytellers. David Daniel, Stacey Longo, Dale T. Phillips, Rob Smales, and Ursula Wong each have two short stories in the book; Vlad V. contributed a novella. Multiple Bram Stoker winner Joe McKinney (Crooked HousePlague of the Undead) wrote the foreword.

The book is a themed anthology: each author based their stories on different senses, going beyond the traditional (sight, smell, hearing, touch, and taste) to elements such as a sense of doom, of powerlessness to control the future, and a sense of false hope.

The anthology is the second installment from Books & Boos Press. Insanity Tales debuted in October 2014.

This was my 4th year being involved with this event. This involvement has always been with bringing authors and books to the Open Air Market. The market has always been successful and always has a lot of people coming out to it. This year was the busiest I have ever seen it. The attendance for this year’s event blows the other year’s attendance out of the water.
