Books & Boos Press is excited to announce our October release of Insanity Tales, due out just in time for the Halloween season. This anthology contains short stories from David Daniel, Stacey Longo, Dale T. Phillips, and Ursula Wong, and a short novella by Vlad Vaslyn. Longo also edited the collection.
All of the stories in the anthology are new, with the exception of one from Longo (“Old Man’s Winter”), which was expanded and changed from an earlier version. Each story in Insanity Tales features a character whose actions could very well be perceived as crazy—and in some cases, they are.
The table of contents for Insanity Tales is as follows:
Foreword by Jonathan Maberry
“Memory Unit” by David Daniel
“Dark Water” by Ursula Wong
“Jack-o’-Lantern” by Dale T. Phillips
“Old Man’s Winter” by Stacey Longo
“Scalper” by David Daniel
“Never Alone” by Ursula Wong
“Chupacabra Moon” by Dale T. Phillips
“Color Him Crazy” by Stacey Longo
“The Sleep Artist” by Vlad V.
