Gleefully Macabre Tales, a collection by Jeff Strand

Cemetery Dance Magazine says that "No author working today comes close to Jeff Strand's perfect mixture of comedy and terror." Gleefully Macabre Tales compiles 33 of his most twisted blends of cringe-worthy horror and ghoulish humor, with a couple of serious pieces thrown in just to mess with you.

This collection includes tales from his three chapbooks (Two Fisted Nuts, Socially Awkward Moments With An Aspiring Lunatic, and Funny Stories of Scary Sex) and numerous other stories both popular and obscure, including "Really, Really Ferocious" (the one with the wiener dog), "High Stakes" (the one with the slot machine), "Roasting Weenies by Hellfire" (the one with Satan), "The Bad Candy House" (the one with a very unpleasant old man at Halloween) and "The Socket" (the one with the eyeball socket). And, as a special demented bonus, the paperback edition includes the novella Disposal.

It also includes two of his entries in the World Horror Convention gross-out contest. But you don't want to read them.

So if you're looking to laugh, gasp, gag, or do all three at the same time, making sort of a weird sound that hurts your lungs and elicits odd glances from nearby pedestrians, don't miss Gleefully Macabre Tales!

General Details: Cover art by Frank Walls, Introduction by Jeff Strand, 33 stories, and one novella, Story Notes, 280 Pages in length.

Coming back from a long illness.

I've been down and out for a while, but my Kindle stopped me from going crazy while I was confined to a hospital bed.

The food was bad, but the reading was great.  Please come back and look at my daily Kindle recommendations.
