Insanity Tales II: The Sense of Fear

INSANITY TALES II IS NOW AVAILABLE

Insanity Tales II

Books & Boos Press is excited to announce the release of Insanity Tales II: The Sense of Fear. This anthology showcases six of New England’s finest storytellers in a terrifying collection out just in time for the Halloween season.

Insanity Tales II features ten short stories and a novella. David Daniel (Goofy Foot, Reunion), Stacey Longo (Ordinary Boy, Secret Things), Dale T. Phillips (A Memory of Grief, Shadow of the Wendigo), Rob Smales (Dead of Winter, the upcoming Echoes of Darkness), and Ursula Wong (Purple Trees, the upcoming Amber Wolf) contributed two short stories each. Vlad V. (Brachman’s UnderworldThe Moon is Dead!) wrote a novella for the collection.

Each story focuses on a sense—not just the traditional ones of sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste, but also of intangible ones, like a sense of justice or impending doom. The result is a suspenseful and terrifying anthology. Multiple Stoker Award winner Joe McKinney wrote the foreword, and said “If you haven’t read any of these authors yet, I envy you, because you are about to have a truly great reading experience.”

Insanity Tales II: The Sense of Fear is available on Amazon in print here or as an e-book here. It is also available wherever books are sold. For additional works by these talented authors, their first anthology, Insanity Tales, is also available here.

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.
