Michelle Ann King writes science fiction, fantasy, and horror from her kitchen table in Essex, England. Her stories have appeared/are forthcoming in over seventy different venues, including Strange Horizons, Interzone, and Daily Science Fiction.
She loves zombies, Las Vegas, and good Scotch whisky — not necessarily in that order — and her favourite author is Stephen King (sadly, no relation). She's been a mortgage underwriter, supermarket cashier, makeup artist, tarot reader, and insurance claims handler before having the good fortune to be able to write full-time.
Her first short story collection Transient Tales is available as an ebook and paperback now, and she is currently working on her second. See www.transientcactus.co.uk for full details and links.

Not as much humor to be found in this collection, compared to the first two, but many enjoyable tales nevertheless. My favorites: "Sweetie" (the cover story), the otherworldly "Seeing Red," the violent "Getting Shot in the Face Still Stings," and the gruesome "You Don't Want What I Get." Like King, I enjoy paranormal crime stories, and she excels at the clipped, hardboiled style. I missed the author notes preceding each story in this volume, but I was glad to find them at the end -- and in greater depth than the first two volumes.
