Seeing an idea come together is a wonderful thing and I am very proud to present Scriborium’s very first anthology written by members of the guild. Introducing A Very Scary Christmas which is a collection of short stories centering around the festive season all with a supernatural or horror twist.
This juxtaposition of themes was quite a fun and creative challenge and it was a great way for the members of Scriborium to get an opportunity to work together. The stories within the pages are written by seven different authors, and though it might seem like we collaborated and brainstormed together, such isn’t the case. It seems that there was a strange and mysterious synergy at work that wove its ghostly way amongst the pens and keyboards of each and every scribe. An unexpected rhythm emerged and every story seemed to belong together within this singular holiday tome.
The authors who accepted the gauntlet to spin tales of supernatural incongruousness of theme are Mark Sheldon, William Topek, Rosie Reay, Sean Hayden, Athol Foden, David Govett and Kyra Dawson. Each of these authors were enthusiastic to write this anthology simply because they love to write. We all hope readers will enjoy the stories as much as we enjoyed writing them.
Inside A Very Scary Christmas the spirits of the season are ready to make merry and entertain you. Some of the stories possess a gentle cadence, while others demonstrate that the festive season can signal a time of intense fear, and some will stir your heart while spooking you at the same time.
A Very Scary Christmas is available for download at Foden Press and Amazon and since it’s just in time for Christmas it would make a great gift for that certain someone who likes a little dread and the unknown with his tinsel and eggnog.
