Carnival of Horror – A Carnival Themed Horror Anthology

Roll up, roll up!

Welcome to the carnival!

Enjoy the sweet smells of the cotton candy and candy apples. Listen to the calliope music as you wander among the many stalls, to the screams of children enjoying the various rides. It’s all been designed to take your money, but you already know that. What you are not aware of, however, are the strange goings-on of the carnival world after dark. Do the carnies want more than your money? Does the fortune teller know more than she tells you? Are some of the games more dangerous than others?

Explore your worst fears, and perhaps gain some new ones, in these twisted tales of what really goes on at the carnival after dark!

I have a pretty brutal story in this one. It’s one of my more extreme tales. As you have probably noticed, it’s an outstanding lineup. Half of the authors from the Collected Horror Shorts anthos have stories in here too.

Pandemonium

KJK Publishing is proud to present Pandemonium.

Synopsis:
As the year draws to a close, a mysterious stranger makes a proposition to club owner Warren Charlton.

It’s a deal involving a brand new drug. The good news: the drug is free. The bad news: it comes at a heavy price… promising much but delivering far more. Euphoria and ecstasy. Death and depravity.

One big night. One new pill. It all awaits those who try Pandemonium.

***Contains bonus short stort ‘Reasons to Kill’***

Others comments on the book:

“J C Michael unleashes upon ordinary, unsuspecting characters a fiendish plot that only maestros such as Bentley Little and Michael Slade could rival.”
~ Dean Lombardo, author of Space Games

“A crazy ride to hell and back, if you’re ballsy enough to take on this awesome book.”
~ Claire Riley, author of Limerence

“A literal trip into the abyss echoing with the screams of those classic movies from the 80s where the big bad was bigger than life, unrepentantly evil, and no one was safe. By the time Michael’s 200 beat-per-minute pandemonium kicks in it’s too late to do anything but keep rolling and pray you make it to the last track.”
~ Bracken MacLeod, author of Mountain Home

“Michael’s novel of sex, drugs, music and evil pulls you in seductively, then turns the amp up to 11. With a silky, snaky style reminiscent of Clive Barker, Michael weaves a tale that takes recreational drug use to a whole new, terrifying level. The book moves at a terrific pace, to the THUMP THUMP THUMP of dance music. And all the time, in the background, there is an elegant, sophisticated evil DJing the entire rave.”
~ John F D Taff, author of Little Deaths

“Fantastic. Epic. I’ve done a lot of drugs, and wrote my share of stories, but never have they both danced together in the darkness such as in Discoredia.”
~ Mark Matthews, author of On the Lips of Children

“Trainspotting meets 28 Days Later. Outstanding!”
~Andrew Lennon, author of A Life to Waste
