Contributor and prolific master of the flash horror, Wilbur Ochiltree has a new anthology up. Please show him some love!
This is volume 1 of an anthology of horror flash fiction and short stories that I have written over the last year. Some of them center on a broken mind and the depth of darkness glimpsed within. Others explore supernatural forces…sometimes revealing themselves in common every day activities that are part of our day to day routine. I hope you enjoy the collection and find a favorite. I will begin work on volume 2 soon. These stories are meant for ages 17+.
This volume contains 18 stories. What follows is a brief summary of each without giving to much away:
