An imagined disease spreads across a city. A fading horror movie star crafts his replacement. Two thieves wait for rescue at the end of the world. Human monsters are put to their final tests. Time stands still in fairy circles, loops in on itself for a runaway child, and can be rewritten in the pages of a book. Fifteen unforgettable stories to be read in the dark from dark urban fantasy author Michael Montoure. 

" ... Montoure's spare, striking prose outlines characters in deliciously twisted predicaments .... " -- Seattle Weekly

  • LULLABY FOR TWO VOICES - Her perfect child, or his dark twin -- one will be reclaimed
  • ORPHEUS - The worst part of Hell is not knowing you're there 
  • WATCH THE COIN - A secret pact, a successful heist, and a fairy circle 
  • LOST BOY - A young boy runs away to a fairytale woods, only to find he's not alone 
  • PUPPETS - The man who bought the doll from him will ruin his career, if he can't find it before it kills again

About the Author:

An unreliable narrator, MICHAEL MONTOURE is an indie writer of horror and dark urban fantasy. His obsessions include hidden truths, secret dealings, and the changing and fragile nature of our own pasts. He is known as much for his spoken-word performances of his fiction at Seattle coffeehouses and conventions as for the stories themselves. Currently working as a writer and producer of the webseries Causality, he lives alone with a gray cat by the edge of Echo Lake, Washington.

Review:

"Put simply, Slices is the best recent horror collection I've read from an author since Joe Hill's 20th Century Ghosts. If you like horror, you should board this sharp train, and seek out his other works: Montoure is going to be going places, and soon." -- Schuler Books Weblog
