Keeping the Dead

Author's evolve. Here's a bit of evolution from yours truly, currently available for Kindle:


Keeping the Dead will be free this weekend. From the foreword:

The fear of death is persistent. It can be a monster. But fates worse than death abound. These stories are not simple shocks, basic cut-and-slash horror which leaves a reader panting but unsatisfied. These stories sleep with the cold, impersonal knowing which dwells inside us all—a knowing that death waits, the unknown is coming. It’s close. It’s just beyond the door.

Dead tree fans--I'm planning an "omnibus" of my "best" short stories next summer.

Nice! Love the cover! Good to see you're getting some work done on the fiction front...

Damn it, Polson! Where DO you find these awesome images?

Also, congrats and all. :)

Thanks Daniel, but these aren't "new"--just new to collection. A few were newly up for reprint (like "Wanting It" from Shock Totem). Hopefully this broadens the audience.

Barry - I painted this one, based on a few post-mortem photos. (thanks)

Holy crap. That's amazing! Great job.

Looks great!! But hey! You got a problem with simple shocks? :)

LOVE this cover too! And you painted it? What CAN'T you do? ;)

You should start up a biz doing custom painted book covers (unless you already do - which wouldn't surprise me either) :)

Sweet! I have quite the backlog of Polson treasures. :-)
