Genre Shotgun

A Collection of Short Fiction by

Terry W. Ervin II

This collection contains all of Ervin’s published short stories to date. It includes tales of science fiction, horror, mystery, suspense and inspiration. “The Scene of My Second Murder” relays the tale of a wretched man seeking forgiveness while confronting revenge from beyond the grave. “Tethered in Purgatory” tells of a trapped soul’s struggle to escape its cryogenically frozen body and reach heaven. In “Drug Dogs” a falsely accused student learns you can’t always trust those who should be trusted. And those are just a few.


Remorse and redemption, revenge and revelation, cowardice and courage—all are contained within this fast-paced and riveting collection.


“This collection is truly a shotgun approach to genre with stories ranging from an old fashioned campfire horror story to a young man wrongly accused, to saving Earth from aliens in deep space.  Terry Ervin proves himself a master of many genres, and each story is a treat to read.

—Earl Staggs, two-time Derringer Award winner and author of Memory of a Murder


“I love short stories, and Terry Ervin is a master of the form in any genre. This collection has compelling characters and plots that send a chill down your spine, warm your heart, and make you think long after you've finished reading. For lovers of short stories, this collection is a must.” —Angie Lofthouse, author of Defenders of the Covenant
