About the Author

JOHN EVERSON is the Bram Stoker Award-winning author of the erotic supernatural horror novels Covenant, Sacrifice, The 13th, Siren and The Pumpkin Man. He's also penned five short story collections, including Needles & Sins, which included the Stoker nominated Letting Go. Over the past 15 years, John's short fiction has appeared in more than 75 magazines and anthologies, and he has contributed to Green Hornet and  Kolchak: The Night Stalker anthologies, as well as to the non-fiction On Writing Horror reference book for writers. His stories and novels have also been translated and published in Poland, Turkey and France. John is also the publisher of Dark Arts Books, a Chicago area press spotlighting the cutting edge work of some of the best authors working in short horror/dark fantasy fiction today.

CYNTHIA (cina) PELAYO grew up in a haunted house with very superstitious parents. So, a lifelong fascination with Gothic literature, romantic horror and the macabre seemed fitting. Pelayo holds a genuine curiosity for superstition, folklore and myth. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from Columbia College, a Master of Science in Integrated Marketing Communication from Roosevelt University, and a Master of Fine Arts in Writing from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She is a member of the Horror Writer's Association and is also the Publisher/Gravedigger at Burial Day Books. She wears black - most of the time and she stays out of the sun as much as (un)humanly possible.

If you like horror stories that are short and sweet you should check out Gothic Blue Book The Haunted Edition from Burial Day books . This is a collection of 12 short horror stories and two poems edited by Cynthia and Gerardo Pelayo. This anthology honors the gothic story and includes old ghost stories and tales of misery, fear, despair, regret and dread. This collection would make Edgar Allan Poe proud. Don't expect a lot of happy endings in this book.

Gothic Blue Book: The Haunted Edition is a tribute to the Gothic blue Books that came out in the late 18th and 19th century. These books included several short stories and were between 36 and 72 pages long. They were very cheap and not well liked by literary critics; despite that they were very popular.

When I started reading Gothic Blue Book, I didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I did, but there were quite a few good stories in the book. The first story is a poem which sets the mood for the whole book. Its by Helena Marie Carnes Jeffries and called The Beach House. It describes the emotional state of a woman who has just found out her husband is cheating on her. The depressed woman is walking on a beach and sees a very familiar looking woman in an abandoned beach house. Thinking the woman needs help she decides to go inside but doesn't like what she finds, but maybe it was what she was looking for. I loved how the woman's thoughts we're described in this poem and how well written it was.

Another good story in this anthology was The Tapping by John Everson. This one was about three men who make a bet on who can be the first one to retrieve a skeleton's hand from a graveyard so they can use it in a prank. This story was the kind of story I love to read as a horror fan.

This is some of the best horror writing available these days. If you want a collection of short stories that will completely melt your brain, you can't find much better than the Gothic Blue Book. First in a long line of publications from Burial Day Press!

IT was filled with fantastic stories. They were such an easy read. A few of them were v very disturbing. The best part of this book is that just as you are getting into it you have reached the end, in other words it doesn't bore you.
IN ONE WORD FANTASTIC!!!!!!!

I picked up this ebook a few weeks ago and loved it! These stories are perfect for reading on the go, or for a rainy day snuggled in bed. At 99c it's is a real bargain too! Highly recommended!
