Dark Fiction Giveaway

We want to make your life a little darker.

West Pigeon Press has invited us to give away a free copy of its new anthology of dark fiction, For When the Veil Drops. Dark fiction is anything that curdles your blood and leaves you unsure whether you should pick up a shotgun or call a psychiatrist. Our boy Brian Evenson is a master of it, but there’s a whole community of dark fiction writers out there, and West Pigeon Press is their publisher. Heck, we’ll give you a copy of their first book, You Shall Never Know Security by J.R. Hamantaschen, too.

One thing we love about these stories is their amazing titles.

  • A Lower Power
  • The City Underneath
  • A Parasite Inside Your Brain
  • “Jordan, When Are You Going to Settle Down, Get Married and Have Us Some Children?”
  • There is A Family of Gnomes Behind My Walls, And I Swear I Won’t Disappoint Them Any Longer
  • Nothing Bad Has Ever Happened Here
  • St. Mollusks
  • College

So tell us, in the comments, your idea of a great title for a work of dark fiction.

We’ll select one winner to receive both books from West Pigeon Press.

Feel free to enter more than once.
