The Red Church - Horror

Quote:
A Stoker Award finalist. "Can you hear him a-knockin'?" A 13-year-old boy struggles with his faith when his mother joins a haunted Appalachian church led by Archer McFall, a mysterious preacher. As mutilated bodies turn up, a sheriff investigates and is tempted to join the congregation. "Sacrifice is the currency of God," McFall preaches, and if he gets his way, then everybody pays.

Ashes - Horror short stories

Quote:
A collection of supernatural stories by award-winning author Scott Nicholson, including "Homecoming," "The Night is an Ally" and "Last Writes." From the author of THE RED CHURCH, THE SKULL RING, and the story collections FLOWERS and THE FIRST, these stories visit haunted islands, disturbed families, and a lighthouse occupied by Edgar Allan Poe. Exclusive introduction by Jonathan Maberry.

Also the table of contents for Ashes do not match the contents or order of the book. Don't know what's up there.

wow, the one on smashwords is COMPLETELY different from the one on the Kobo site. Like 12 stories instead of 19 (or 20 if you were to look at the TOC, but Silver Run is not included in that.) And the stories are not even the same!! I bet KOBO screwed it up!

Oh good - I was hoping that would be the case. Thanks for posting the other link.


Quote:

I noticed that and then I just checked the 1st item to see if it was right and it was, so I didn't check any further.


So here are the stories that are actually in the Kobo book:

1. Timing Chains of the Heart.
2. Dog Person
3. The October Girls
4. Murdermouth
5. Sung Li
6. In the Family
7. Work in Progress
8. She Climbs a Winding Stair
9. Watermelon
10. The Meek
11. The Weight of Silence
12. The Hounds of Love
13. Penance
14. Scarecrow
15. Last Writes
16. Sewing Circle

What is supposed to be in Ashes according to Scott's website is:

TABLE OF CONTENTS


1. Timing Chains Of The Heart
2. Dog Person
3. Invisible Friend
4. Silver Run
5. The Night Is An Ally
6. The Endless Bivouac
7. She Climbs A Winding Stair
8. Watermelon
9. The Weight of Silence
10. Last Writes

http://www.hauntedcomputer.com/ashes.htm

The Smashwords version has yet another table of contents and that one matches what is actually there:

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Introduction: The Horror Of It All by Jonathan Maberry
1. Homecoming
2. Haunted
3. The Christening
4. She Climbs A Winding Stair
5. Must See To Appreciate
6. Silver Run
7. The Three-Dollar Corpse
8. The Night Is An Ally
9. The Rocking Chair
10. Invisible Bullets
11. The Endless Bivouac
12. Last Writes

The Amazon version (for $.89) is the same as Smashwords.

Screwy deal but a good one if you get the Smashwords and Kobo versions.

I had sent a PM to Scott a couple days ago, and here is is official response:

Quote:
Hi Joe, thanks, I need to overwrite that Smashwords version! The final version has the fewer stories--I changed it so that they were all "ghost and supernatural" and will release the psychological horror this winter. You can keep whatever form you want but they will eventually be the shorter versions as final versions (though, who knows, I may change them again later, but for now I like it as it is). Please spread the word.

Scott

The title for "Ashes" is listed as "Haunted Computer Books," and not "Scott Nicholson."

You might wish to correct that.

I also decided to buy "Ashes" at Amazon. I enjoy supporting short-story writers who write excellent horror fiction.
