Free short story Deadside in Bug City
by Randy Chandler from Comet Press.
After a weaponized virus kills 40,000 of the city's inhabitants, 1,400 of them inexplicably become reanimated. The walking dead are interred in a crumbling ghetto while authorities go to court to determine if they should be destroyed.
The walking dead seem to be little more than mindless automatons until one of them spray paints an enigmatic message on a ghetto wall.
Troubleshooter Draven is sent inside to find her and bring her out. But going among the Rotties is fraught with danger, especially when his name is on the lips of the dead.
Deadside in Bug City is a short story of approximately 20 printed pages.
Free anthology Christmas Ghost Stories: Festive Skin Crawlers with a Twist
by Stewart King from Endeavor Press. Ten stories.
A remote Cornish village on Christmas Day battered by the howling seas.
An old house that needs emptying on a Boxing Day.
A woman who spends Christmas by herself every year.
Prepare to be scared out of your wits with this collection of Christmas Ghost stories from the macabre pen of Stewart King.
While Christmas is a time of crackling fires and roasting turkeys, it can also be a time of dark nights, howling winds, creaks on the stairs, and strange noises from the cellar.
And while it a time for re-unions and parties, for some people it is also a time of loneliness and memories.
And it is not necessarily just the living members of the family that come back for the festive season.
Written in the style of the traditional masters of the genre such as Charles Dickens and MR James, each story in this collection captures the essence of Christmas - except with a deadly sting in its tail.
