Before I break off for the holidays, I just wanted to share a couple of Christmas crackers with you from quirky little imprint Dark Fuse (http://www.darkfuse.com/ )
Two great little novellas, one crime, one horror, that pack a punch, with more than one or two dark twists in the tale. A couple of thoroughly enjoyable bijou reads…
The reprehensible man sits in the restaurant. Laughing with his friends. Entertaining them with a story about his wretched behavior.
He doesn’t know that somebody at another table is watching him. Somebody filled with hatred. Somebody waiting for him to be alone. Somebody with duct tape and a gun.
It’s a night for vengeance. And a hell of a lot more.
They come at night.
A stranger staggers out of the wilderness under the cover of a blizzard and stumbles into a diner full of people. He collapses in the entryway, unzips his jacket, and allows the object hidden inside to fall out. Screaming commences.
Four old college buddies embark upon their annual elk hunting trip into the Rocky Mountains. This promises to be their last, for the passage of time is as merciless and unpredictable as the Colorado weather. And they’re not alone.
There are other hunters in the mountains, stalking game of a different breed. They know exactly what they’re doing, because they’ve been hunting in these woods for a long, long time. And no one ever survives to betray their existence.
Happy Christmas everyone and hope Santa Claus brings you some great crime fiction!
