Stefanie Reviewer: “The three works are each very similar, yet very different. They all show the emotional struggles of women in difficult situations where they have lost a great deal of control over their circumstances.”
Read THREE Very Different Horror Stories:
A Slow Burn: By ELA
“Shah has done it again with her flowing style. The characters are so realistic that it’s chilling. I will admit to having read this with the lights well and truly on!! Such vivid imagery that it felt like I was watching a movie as I read. I highly recommend this novella to all lovers of this genre.”
A Slow Burn (Post-Apocalyptic Horror Novella)
It wasn’t the first time Bernie had woken up in a stranger’s house with a sore head, although it’d been a while. But the stench of rotting meat, an eerie silence, and the head wound were new. In search of illumination, she opens the curtains to find a post-apocalyptic world outside. Reason screams—those aren’t sleeping revellers at her feet… they’re clammy dead bodies.
Struggling to remember the events leading to her taking refuge under a stranger’s bed, Bernie stumbles around, wounded and disoriented. In desperation, she hunts down the living, but with death and destruction everywhere, isolation becomes a monster all of its own.
The events that led to this disaster begin to raid her mind, offering only snippets of forgotten information. When a girl finds her and leads her to other survivors, will Bernie remember the most important details in time to save them all, or are their fates irreversible?
The Dead Party (Satirical Horror Short With Zombies)
Imagine the United Kingdom after an election, where the party of choice — the party now in charge of every decision — is The Dead Party. Stinks, right?
Follow our heroine as she recounts how her life, her country, and her access to fish and chips – a basic right in any UK home – changed unimaginably. And see what fate awaits her on an island where the Dead reek and speak and chase her into trees.
This is a political satire, exploring an island ruled by zombies, a massive recruitment initiative, an unpredictable supernatural power, a whole lot of rot… Oh, and one incredibly sly cat!
Rosa and Bella’s Journal of Decline (Psychological Horror Short)
Rosa was young, vibrant, intelligent, and in love. But that was before everything changed. Now, she lives a horrific existence with her daughter, baby Bella. This is her account of their decline, in journal format.
This is a UK-based short story told in journal format, focussing on the decline of the world, life, and a reluctant mother’s mind.
