Book Description

"Fishing in Brains for an Eye with Teeth" is a collection of Thirteen Tales of Terror, all written by William Markly O'Neal.

Featured are two previously published stories: 'Bob Bodey’s Body Parts', which originally appeared in Weird Tales magazine, Issue #346; and 'Sensory Desolation', which was first published in Cover of Darkness, (from Sam’s Dot Publishing) in May of 2011.

In 'Bob Bodey's Body Parts,' a man finds he can purchase Real functioning Body Parts from a vending machine. WARNING: Real means Real!

In 'Sensory Decimation', the Sheriff of a rural Indiana County gets some help tracking down a serial killer. His benefactors are five mysterious psychics... who don't tell the Sheriff the terrible price he'll pay for their assistance.

Other stories in this collection include…. 'www.$ellYerSoul2Satan.hel', the tale of a man who gets the girl the old fashioned way: by selling his soul to the Devil; 'The Legend of Bullet Lake', a ghost story that turns deadly for five young men on a hunting trip; 'Crimson House', answering the timeless question, "What happens to successful serial killers when they get old?”; 'The Night Lightning Strikes Paintersville', a place where madness manifests itself in art; 'Edgar Alan Poem Meets Elizabeth Barrett Brownie', where a monster stalks a single mom using the Internet; 'She Dreams of Murder', the story of a man who hears his sleeping wife talk about killing him; and 'I Was a Teenage Beehive', a tragic tale that just might give you a buzz.

There are also four pieces of flash fiction. Even the worst monsters have 'Embarrassing Secrets'. Even perfect machines experience 'System Failure'. Truth or Dare makes for fun 'Graveside Games'. And why should death stop us from spending time with Daddy on 'Father's Day'?

Two of these yarns were featured in podcasts at, part of the District of Wonders. 'Sensory Desolation' was narrated in Episode 56 and 'www.$ellYerSoul2Satan.hel' was included in Episode 88 (both available on iTunes.)

These horror stories contain profanity, gore, graphic violence, and some sexual situations.

I am still in the process of reading these great tales, but those I have read are truly dark and detail-filled. I especially enjoyed the internet tale of Lenny selling his soul to the Devil in order to "get the girl". This could be a pilot for a new round of "The Twilight Zone".

Mr. O'Neal has a great way of making you feel like you are right in the middle of story; he captures the feelings and the very fine details that many other authors seem to overlook. These tales are not only horror-filled, but contain wry humor (something the author seems to have a knack for!), with twists and turns that keep the pages turning.

Again, 5 stars so far, I am pacing myself and enjoying each tale as I would each juicy bite of a filet mignon with a smooth cabernet. Looking forward to more tales from Mr. O'Neal!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Bargain! August 5, 2012
By R. Ega
Format:Kindle Edition
I may be prejudiced because I'm the editor, but that just means I correct all his spelling errors. 'Bob Bodey's Body Parts' alone is well worth the purchase price because you'll have to go out and buy yourself some Brain Bleach after reading it. If it was good enough for 'Weird Tales' you know you are going to enjoy it! I'm proud to know this man and proud that I get to read his stuff first! We are working on another anthology already!

What could be better than a Kindle book at a great price? How about a Kindle book, great price, interesting new author, and a collection of short stories?

5.0 out of 5 stars like a finger making long, slow love to a brain January 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bill O'Neal's _Fishing in Brains for an Eye with Teeth_ is an amusing, often hilarious, collection of "Creepshow"-style horror tales, many of which are written in the tradition of O'Neal's professed idol, Stephen King. The stories vary in length and tone; some are deadly serious while others contain a humorous twist. Among my favorite stories were the perverse "Edgar Allen Poem Meets Elizabeth Barrett Brownie," the King-like "The Legend of Bullet Lake," the short but startlingly funny "Embarrassing Secret," the punny "Graveside Games," the unpredictable "She Dreams of Murder," and the gleefully disgusting "Bob Bodey's Body Parts," which reads like a horror-genre version of that self-toppingly sick joke, "The Aristocrats." O'Neal's overactive imagination powers all of these entertaining tales; his enthusiasm for writing and his love of the horror genre are evident on each page. His book is definitely a steal at $1.99.

I was very interested in exactly what this title meant. You will be delighted to find out for yourself. Scary is not the first, or only, word I'd use to describe it. You will not be disapointed!!.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hoping to read more from Mr. O'neal! December 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I must have exclaimed "Well I didn't see that coming!" so much in such a small timeframe. I had to read this book a second time just to prove to myself that I had not missed one clue or another that had foreshadowed the events. Mr. O'Neal does an amazing job of pulling you in to the story and not letting go until the very last page. And many of the stories will stick with you long after you finish reading.

I definitely recommend reading Bob Bodey's Body Parts first, and then again after you finish the other stories!

I have read some horror stories before but I have to tell you, I was just bowled over by this guy's talent. How come we haven't heard of him before? Someone is missing out on a great writer! Bob Brody's Body Parts was one of the best stories I've read in ages. This guy is going places. What a mind!
