Twenty years ago, the dead destroyed the world of the living. The survivors scattered in the wake of the Scourge, erecting small towns in the worlds' most sparsely populated areas.

For young Gabriel, the walking dead are merely the memories that haunt the eyes of those old enough and lucky enough to have survived. He is more concerned with his hard life in America's desert, where his chores keep him busy and the husks of books stashed beneath the cellar of the library are his only freedom.

Until the circus comes to town.

"Circus of the Dead" is a novelette of approximately 10,748 words.

DESCRIPTION:

Deep beneath the earth of a North Cumbrian wood lies the germinating mass of a fungus-like organism. How long it has occupied the fibrous soil of that place is uncertain, but Dr Jim Alburton estimates it is close to ten million years. Then again, this is not his sphere of expertise. He would normally consult Jane Milner, the county’s only resident fungus expert. But Jane is dead, along with her partner — victim of a rare, acute brain disease. Alburton found her on the floor of a laboratory, sticky orange fluid oozing from her ears. This was disturbing enough, however her partner’s face was mutilated beyond recognition, an apparent result of his girlfriend’s killing frenzy.

Alburton comes to know of the fungus because of Jane’s notebook, which describes its discovery but gives little scientific detail or where it is located. He can’t help thinking the discovery is bound up with her sudden death and that of her partner. The police are moving too slow for Alburton’s liking and don’t accept there’s a connection between this incident and an increasing number of horrific deaths rapidly blooming in the area. A woman walking her dogs along a popular pathway is savagely attacked, a local student inexplicably kills the school nurse, a care-worker suffers a psychotic episode and attacks an elderly man in his home. The news bulletins deliver more reports by the hour.

As the number of incidents mounts, Alburton becomes convinced the county is quickly becoming the epicentre of a fungal disease epidemic that could spread nationwide. He concludes the fungus must be acting on its host’s nervous system, causing them to become depraved killing machines. Yet few believe him as he has little evidence for his theory. Now he faces the responsibility of tracking down the source of the disease, persuading the authorities and somehow preventing a cascade of bloody murders. With the newly christened phenomenon known as Mycophoria accelerating in its impact, there are only days or perhaps hours to accomplish this before the disease goes pandemic.

DESCRIPTION:

Some secrets should have stayed buried...

Finding the century home in the idyllic lakeside town of Westport was the best thing that could have happened to Sharon. She’d turn it into a B&B and finally run her own business. Who said that it was all downhill at fifty? This is a change of life all right—a change for the better. She and Peter could slide right into being empty nesters.

Except…the Victorian era place isn’t quite as vacant as they thought. It begins with puzzling events like a TV set turning on by itself…then some flickering lights…nothing big; just new house jitters, right? The house was just a new home Sharon would get used to. They’d get an electrician in, and that would be that.

Or is it something else? Years ago, Liam Gallagher, a hard working man who loved practical jokes and pranks died in a tragic accident. Or was it an accident?

As Sharon tries to uncover these long buried secrets, her own bizarre past comes back to haunt her. As a young child, she had a ‘gift’ of an otherworldly nature. She could find lost items, know peoples’ secrets and even have foretelling of dangerous events. It faded when she matured, and she never spoke of it. But it’s back now.

With a vengeance. Rage and long past hatreds are resurrected. Sharon and her family aren’t just in the way. They’re the newest victims. It’s time for one last laugh.

An ancient land breeds a new threat...

The Scottish Highlands; a sparse, mountainous region some say was carved by the gods themselves. Few places are as untouched as this harsh, prehistoric landscape. It is no place for man.

But nestled deep within the wilderness lies a cottage, and behind that cottage is a hill...

When a group of friends travel up from Manchester and hire the cottage for a weekend of boozy fun, they discover a threat far greater than the harsh landscape and unwelcoming weather.

Something deadly lies upon the hill.

And it’s spreading.

If you love claustrophobic horror with a dashing of body-horror then 'The Spread' will knock your socks off.

"All Hallows' Eve" – hear the whispering voices … began as a Halloween flash fiction writing contest on Facebook, sponsored by Sharon Van Orman.

Writer ‘friends' joined in and produced the harrowing, spine-chilling short stories found in this collection.

The contest ran for the month of October and each week's twenty-five entries were voted on with comments; the story with the most comments won.

The winning writers of the first four weeks competitions then competed for an ‘author's dream' prize package of free ebooks, paperbacks, hardcovers, gift cards and more.

But everyone agreed all the stories were excellent…

The Facebook thread exploded. Comments and new ‘friends' were acquired … all with the same goal … writing!

This is not one person's achievement, but a collective of people from around the block and around the world.

Now the other five have been found living seemingly normal adult lives in the small town of Wakefield, Tennessee. But the Wakefield Five aren't like other people. There's something wrong with their minds. The only consistency in their wildly conflicting stories is that they all blame one person for what happened: Eric Partin.

Eric must return to Wakefield to uncover the truth before the evil infects another generation.
