Author Stacey Longo.

Author Stacey Longo will be signing her books at the Books & Boos’ table at Rock & Shock this weekend. She will have on-hand copies of Secret Things, Ordinary Boy, Pookie and the Lost and Found Friend, and My Mom has MS. Two anthologies, Insanity Tales and Insanity II: The Sense of Fear, that each contain two of her stories and the anthology, Wicked Season, which she edited for the New England Horror Writers, will  all be on-hand as well.

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.
