LITTLE DEATHS by HWA Member John F.D. Taff
Author: John F.D. Taff
You think you’ve got bad dreams? Consider author John F.D. Taff’s nightmares. How about the one where a guy resurrects his dead girlfriend with a set of the prop neck bolts used on Boris Karloff in the 1932 classic Frankenstein? Or one where the ghost of the author s dead dog keeps coming back to entice him into death so they can be together? Or the one where a guy loves candy to death?
Taff has the kind of nightmares no one wants. But it’s nightmares like these that give him plenty of ideas to explore; ideas that he’s turned into the short stories he shares in this new collection Little Deaths.
Little Deaths features 19 pieces of short horror fiction; some have appeared previously in print elsewhere, others appear for the first time here. All of them are chilling, weird looks at the human condition from a decidedly dark perspective.
John F.D. Taff is an accomplished author of dark fiction. His short stories have been published in Cemetery Dance, Eldritch Tales, Deathrealm, Big Pulp, Night Chills and Morpheus Tales, as well as in anthologies such as Hot Blood; Fear the Fever, Hot Blood: Seeds of Fear, Shock Rock II, Best New Vampire Tales, Vol. 1, Best New Werewolf Tales, Vol. 1, Evil Jester Digest Vol.1, and the AIDS charity anthology Horror for Good.
