Book Description

Scars and Candy opens the door on a dark world of monsters, crime, mayhem and human evil. Demons, dark creatures and dangerous humans lurk in 16 tales that gaze into the darkness of the human heart and paths of revenge, retribution and terror.

This collection includes:

The Cherry Meadow Massacre
A couple sidetracked on the way to a rural wedding, spin into an encounter with strange people who hold offbeat religious beliefs. Then the man they’ve all been waiting for arrives.

A young man’s affair with a married woman begins with a misguided thought of romance then leads in a soul-wrenching new direction.

Reeling from a divorce, a young writer seeks refuge in her friend’s apartment on the edge of an overgrown field. Eyes beckon to her at night, drawing her toward a relationship that she believes may be her restoration.

Who is the strange blind girl next door? A young man’s obsession drives him to the dark secrets of her past

Aleshia’s Casserole
A flash of Aleshia’s down home cooking.

November’s Breath
A barroom conversation about a relationship gone wrong leads to startling truths.

Good Kids
A group of nerds reach a point where bullying can no longer be tolerated. When good kids, with good imaginations go bad, the results can get brutal.

A flash course in Halloween preparation.


“Sidney Williams has the ability to conjure the genuine reek of hell.” – Graham Masterton on Sidney’s novel Azarius

"Both savage and sublime, that's all you need to know about Sidney Williams' short fiction." –Wayne Allen Sallee, author of The Holy Terror

5.0 out of 5 stars Short Tales, Well Told February 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Scars and Candy is a collection of short horror stories by the author of Night Brothers and Blood Hunter. Some of these tales have appeared elsewhere and others are new to this collection. The stories range from the gory "Repast" to the creepy "Eyes," and everywhere in between. The collection showcases Williams' talent for setting and atmosphere. I very much enjoyed them.

More About the Author

I'm the author of eight traditionally published novels, all of which are available as e-books from Crossroad Press. Crossroad has also released two new books, a short story collection and a thriller, Midnight Eyes. I've also written comic books, audio drama and much more.

I worked as a newspaper reporter for eleven years. In my early days as a general assignment reporter, my shift was 1 p.m. to 10 p.m., so I wrote fiction in the early morning hours, completing most of my work from midnight until 2 a.m., ironically an appropriate time for dark fiction.

I completed the book that would become my first published novel when I was 26.

My books writing as Michael August are for younger readers, though adults can certainly enjoy them as well.

I earned an M.F.A. in creative writing from Goddard College, and I currently teach mystery, suspense and horror writing in Full Sail University's BFA program.
