Ink Stains, Volume 9: A Dark Fiction Literary Anthology
from Guest Editor Stacey Longo
Relationships are complicated at best. Some are beautiful, some are beautiful disasters, and some are just deadly.
This edition of Ink Stains explores some of the most fantastic, frightening, and fascinating dysfunctional relationships ever put down on ink, be it with a parent, a friend, a would-be lover, or Kurt Cobain.
Authors Clay McLeod Chapman, Mario E. Martinez, Matt Meyer, Ted Myers, Adam Michael Nicks, Jay Outhier, Doug Russell, Ryanne Strong, Bobbi Thomas, Lynden Wade, Kathleen Wolak, and Todd Zack give us a look at interactions between people behind closed doors and in the dark corners of their minds where dangerous, delirious thoughts sometimes turn into actions.

|Checkmate by Icy Sedgwick
Your guidebook to the shadows and monsters of modern fairy tales.
In the title story, 'Checkmate', a devilish game of chess goes apocalyptically wrong. Elsewhere, 'Bleed Them Dry' puts a new spin on the contemporary corporate vampire, an aristocratic corpse tells his side of the story in 'The Dead Do Listen', and a little girl is fascinated with an antique that hides a dark world in 'The Mirror Phase'.
Described as “a wonderful collection of tales of subtle urban fantasy with a delicious gothic flavour", 'Checkmate' wants to comfort you and creep you out at the same time. If you enjoy the dark fairytales of Neil Gaiman, then you'll love the weird tales of 'Checkmate'!
|Apocalypstick by Gregory Carrico
If a man’s behavior suddenly and inexplicably changes, it is probably because of a woman. Or rather, the man’s perception of a woman. The two stories in this book explore the dark paths set by male leads and the warped lens through which they view the opposite gender.
Killing Tiffany Hudson: This post-apocalyptic science fiction tale follows a heroic, but guilt-ridden young man, mutated by an alien plague. Contrary to his policy of avoiding cities, he battles his way into a monster-infested Manhattan to rescue a young woman from an imminent, and probably very messy, death.
Finding Home: Part paranormal horror, and part psychological thriller, this creepy story puts you in the blood spattered shoes of deeply disturbed man on a quest for the perfect home and family, as he tries to escape the control of man bent on his destruction. Can he ever find the "normal" life he so desperately craves, when the man he is fleeing only exists in his head?
|The Disembodied by John Grover
In the trees. In the mist.
An apprentice mortician moves his family to the small town of Sotherton to provide them with a better life. Little did he know the dark secret the town and its people harbored.
The town sat on the edge of a mist-shrouded forest with a deadly secret. Something lives in the trees, in the mist and it’s jealous. Jealous of all those who have flesh.
Disembodied is a preview story from the author’s upcoming collection Creatures and Crypts due out in late 2011. Creatures of the living and the dead gather in a volume of over 70,000 words to stalk their prey…humans. 20 stories set the scene for a cast ranging from the Grim Reaper, shambling zombies and restless spirits, to unimaginable monsters that only inhabit the shapeless darkness and the author’s imagination. Join them as they wreak havoc on their unsuspecting victims and celebrate with a victory dance on hollowed bones.
|Evil Lurking Within by Matt Shaw
The plan was simple; snatch the child and get the ransom money.
They had found their victim; a young boy from a posh school.
They had done their homework; he came from a wealthy family who'd surely pay the earth to get him back.
They had even justified why they were right in carrying out such an act; they had served their time and both felt as though they were being cheated from what was owed to them by the cruel society they were trying to integrate with. This was their plan and their time to put themselves on the straight and narrow. It was just a shame that no one told them...
...They never stood a chance.
|The Amorphous Horror by Zachery Miller
Laura sits for a while and listens to Grandpa Kallembach’s stories of Nazi Germany. His tale recounts his struggle for freedom and, finally, of how he got away. The ending only confirms Laura’s suspicions: Grandpa is going mad. But as he ends his strange tale, there is another tale that will become Laura’s to tell.
