How does the world end? With a bang? Or with a whimper? Will it be zombies? Will it be plague? Will it be forgotten gods or robots, vengeance on their minds? There are a multitude of ways in which the world could end.
Springing forth from the minds of the Talaria Press founders, And I Feel Fine presents eight all-new tales of calamity such as:
- From H.L. Reasby comes Venture, a tale of alien invasion, birth and death.
- Garth Reasby’s, Zombie Awake, gives us a new, horrifying element of the zombie trope which may change forever the way you view the genre.
- In Acts of Reparation, Quiana Kirkland wonders what happens to the things we leave behind.
- Ren Cummins undertakes our experiment from Geek Girl Con 2013, using an entirely crowdsourced setting, character, and events to bring us God’s Brownies.
- This anthology also features the debut of Associate Author Martin Schiller, who brings us The 13th Hour, a tale of the plague which spawned the female dominated universe of his Sisterhood of Suns series.
Also included in this anthology are samples of other works by the Talaria Press founders, including excerpts of brand new series’ by Ren Cummins and H.L. Reasby.
Talaria Press knows that some of your favorite characters will always be monsters. Be they friendly or fearsome, dear or deadly, they fascinate humanity and call to a primal element of our nature. Inspired by their power to terrorize and captivate, we present Snicker-Snack, Monster Stories to Cower By.
Within these pages, you’ll meet werewolves and vampires, and monsters that lurk under the bed– or sometimes lie in them. Curious readers may find out just what moved in the corner of their vision, or where their nightmares come from.
Lured into the light by the magic of Talaria’s writers, Snicker-Snack introduces some of the monsters that lurk in our imaginations:
In The Reconquista, Martin Schiller shows us what happens when the monsters we drove out find a way back into our world.
They Always Come by Garth Reasby forces us to face our childhood fears when they leave us nowhere to run.
Quiana Kirkland introduces us to a very special guardian monster in Old Things and New.
Skinwalker takes us back to the world of Sekhmet’s Light to explore two of its most popular secondary characters, Special Agents Bailey and Weber.
And finally, we’re pleased to share a Talaria Press first: the first contribution by Friend of Talaria Press, Aaron Douglas. Douglas’ Under the Bed shows that sometimes going home again is the most hazardous thing you can do.
Also included in this anthology are samples of other works by the Talaria Press founders and Associate Author, Martin Schiller.
What is evil? Is it absolute, or arbitrary? Does a villain consider themselves to be ‘evil’? And do they always lose, or does evil sometimes triumph? Is there even some ‘good’ hiding behind a villain’s mask, or wickedness disguised as ‘good’? In “Dark Hearts, Darker Deeds” the imaginative writers of Talaria Press take us into blackest corners of the human soul, and tell tales of psychopaths, murderers, and worse.
In The Case of the Evaporating Blood, a series of mysterious murders in Victorian London sends the newly formed Scotland Yard to a mysterious young doctor to request assistance. But Ren Cummins reveals that neither the perpetrator, nor the doctor, are quite what they seem.
Morely ushers us into a facility built to house bad men and Aaron Douglas introduces us to Morely, the worst of the worst. Will true justice ever find him behind bars?
Garth Reasby’s In the House of the Green Moon illustrates the allure of strength and power in its darker aspect through the eyes of a princess and her two samurai companions.
