Book Description

Edited by award-winning writer Bruce Bethke and featuring the awesome cover story, "The Jade Box," by Stephen G. McDonald (and correspondingly awesome original cover art by Aaron Bradford Starr), as well as new stories by fan favorites Chuck Bordell, Jamie Lackey, and Gary Cuba, STUPEFYING STORIES 1.9 presents thirteen original tales of ghosties and ghoulies, spirits and specters, and things that go bump in the night, by an outstanding assemblage of American, Canadian, Irish, and Swedish authors.


"Between Life and Oblivion," by Samuel R. George
"The Florence," by Chuck Bordell
"Door in the Darkness," by David Steffen
"Streaming," by Sharon Irwin
"The Flint Indenture," by Tim W. Burke
"Not Everything Goes Bump," by Robert W. Hobson
"Ashes to Diamonds," by Jamie Lackey
"Blood and Saltwater," by Cassandra Rose Clarke
"A Homeowner's Dilemma," by Mark Hill
"The Ghost Train," by Fox McGeever
"The Jade Box," by Stephen G. McDonald
"Going Out With a Bang," by Gary Cuba
"The Old-Fashioned Way," by Thomas Pluck

From a haunted hotel room in Seattle to the waiting room of the afterlife; from a quietly chilling meditation in a country cemetery to an ambitious plan to revive entire dying cities with industrial-scale necromancy; from a heart-breaking tale of a love that lives on after death to a side-splitting -- not to mention neck-snapping, nose-flattening, and jaw-dropping -- story about a funeral gone horribly wrong that, as one early reviewer said, "puts the black in black humor," you'll find it in this edition of STUPEFYING STORIES!

Five stars is a lot, but like the title states, only one story didn't strike my fancy. The four best stories were; Between Life and Oblivion, Not Everything Goes Bump, The Jade Box, and The Old-fashion Way. The rest were incredible, except for one.I refuse to name as it may sway the reader. I know that every story here was something I would have never found in any mainstream publication, which makes each one a gem. The one story which did not strike me as completely incredible wasn't because it was bad, it was just slow. Read this on a commuter train and you'll miss your stop. BUY IT.
