Dragged into Darkness -- Horror Stories

New to download is my long out of print -short story collection Dragged into Darkness. I hope you'll check it out and the inspirations for the stories.

From Smashwords: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/2911
For Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/Dragged-into-D.../dp/B002HWSLFU
Inspirations: http://simonwood.net/draggedintodarkness2.html

The world is a dark place, even in daylight. DRAGGED INTO DARKNESS features tales of horror from the subtle to the extreme. The characters are ordinary people who are ripped from their daily routines into a dark world. DRAGGED INTO DARKNESS is filled with characters who are one step from light and a normal existance, and because of this, their lives will never be the same. In THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER, Dr. Gareth Troy empathizes with his tortured patients' disfigurements a little too much. For Grace in PURELY COSMETIC, reaching her target weight is all that matters. In ACCEPTABLE LOSSES, Captain John Clelland has struck the worst of bargains for the lives of allied soldiers. In RUNWAY THREE-SEVEN, Neal is forced to land his crippled aircraft on a runway that can't possibly exist.

DRAGGED INTO DARKNESS will make you clamor for the light.

Originally published in 2003 in paperback.

"Simon Wood is a powerful new voice in the art of dark storytelling. His prose is surreal, unique...and disturbing. The stories in this collection will indeed drag you into darkness—and you'll love every minute of it! A promising debut from a future master of terror.”
— Brian Keene, Author of THE RISING

Hi Simon

I went to smashwords and had a look at your stories... They are very good, and I've added your book to my cart...

I actually read all 25% offered for free...

The stories look very 'Roald Dahl'-like...

Actually, that has been said before. It may have something to do that I used to watch Tales of the Unexpected when I was little. I'm also a big Rod Serling fan too. I think it shows from time to time.

Geeze... and here I thought I had observed something new...

I have read Roald Dahl's short stories many times over the years, and always enjoyed them, so keep them coming..

Thanks Tom. I hope you like the book. I updated it from when it came out originally in 2003.

Lene, there are tales of Roald's that I hold up as How-to's on short storytelling. I still wish I could put a fresh spin on The Man From The South.

Thumbs up Dragged into Darkness -- Horror Stories (Christmas Pricing -- $1.99)

For the Holiday season, I've dropped the price of Dragged into Darkness to $1.99 on Kindle and Smashwords. I hope people will check it out.
