In Redacted, text flows unapologetically and tumbles unrelenting. Cats impregnate humans and aliens invade the neighborhood. Most of the stories are daring experiments by experienced authors, brazen in their lack of adoption of traditional storytelling.
Scary Story
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 17,210. Language: English. Published: April 1, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Horror » General
Summer's fading, and there's more than the bite of autumn in the air. Zombies are biting in ‘Last Dawn,’ and that's just a taste of Scary Story, a collection of twisted fiction and dark fantasy that's guaranteed to keep you turning pages and checking your back.
Soldier Story
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 46,670. Language: English. Published: February 22, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Adventure » War & military adventure
Leaders, snipers, and foot soldiers appear in wars as diverse as Gettysburg, Vietnam, and Afghanistan. Some of them fight for faith, others for revenge. Others just hope to survive and grow old while suppressing bitter memories. This collection of short stories is stronger for its ugly authenticity, and blessed by the extraordinary talents of its authors.
Dysfunctional Family Story
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 39,730. Language: English. Published: February 19, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Anthologies » General

Writing fiction can be slippery—what is funny to one person may not be amusing to another. As Erma Bombeck said, “there is a thin line that separates laughter and pain, comedy and tragedy, humor and hurt.” Funny Story offers insightful tales that might make you laugh out loud, or just leave a smile on your face. This collection of powerful writing includes some of the best writers in the South.
Peripheral Sex
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 29,600. Language: English. Published: February 19, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Anthologies » Erotica Anthologies
These stories beat around the bush. With an Appalachian flavor they capture tangential urges and the outer boundaries of sex, sometimes without actually having any. Impulse, dark humor, sensuality, uncertain choices and deluded behavior take their rightful place as full partners in human sexual pursuits.

Price: $3.99 USD. Words: 31,350. Language: English. Published: February 19, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Anthologies » General
