Titles By Birgit K. Gaiser
We all have a fascination for things that scare us—the thrill, the heart-stopping jump scares, the terrifying suspense. From the youngest age, we’re fascinated by the fiendish and furry, the creepiest critters, the naughty and the nasty. Horror is all around us, from the clowns who hide under our bed, to the things we might drag up from the brook at the bottom of the garden, and the zombies who crawl our streets.
As author, Megan Feehley, so beautifully says; there is beauty just before the terror…a silken breath taken before the spill of righteousness…the warmth of a licking flame preceding the scald.
So, close the drapes, check the locks, turn on all the lights and get comfortable. But don’t close your eyes…
Never close your eyes...
Steampunk, cyberpunk, biopunk, dieselpunk.
Dark stories from twisted, creative minds. From fairies to ill-fated steampunk inventors, futuristic gravboarders, and vampiric dystopias. Adjust your ocular-mods as twenty-seven authors bring you their take on the theme, in fifty-seven gritty chunks of prose.

And who is Death? What does he like—how does he like his tea, does he really like using a scythe, is Death even gendered?
Death can take many forms, reap many souls. Death is unforgiving; yet can be gentle, almost kind. Death is the Ferryman; the driver of a cart with bones rattling against the road; Death is many things, but most importantly, Death is inevitable.
Find out answers to these questions and more, as authors from all over the world pursue Death in this collection of 100-word stories from Black Ink Fiction. When the Reaperman knocks, what will you do?
The Ringmaster leads his motley crew, performing for the masses day in and day out. Trapeze artists, the human cannonball, the lion tamer, and of course…the clowns. They smile through the show, entertainment in their blood, but what happens when blood is what they crave? When the audience becomes unwilling participants in a show they never bargained for and clowns have a rivalry…the Ringmaster puts on a performance you’ll never forget.
Come to the Big Top, where 45 international authors let you run away to the circus just like you’ve always dreamed–or feared. In Black Ink Fiction’s Circus of the Damned, you’ll find thrills and scares on every page.
From more than 50 international authors, these wintery drabbles have been crafted to remind you that before you can have the rebirth of spring, first there must be death.
Come enter the dragon’s lair and roll the dice. Within these pages you will still meet some of the biggest, baddest predators ever—but if you are lucky, you will also discover some that have a sweeter side.
Meet a dragon with a soft spot for hard luck cases and another who is a hopeless romantic.
Enjoy a musical battle between a dragon and the specter of one of the greatest guitarists to ever play.
Meet a dragon in trouble with other magical creatures because he enjoys hanging out with human children.
Join a mother and daughter and their teams of dragons on a dangerous cross-country race.
Reconnect with an imaginary friend – who is not so imaginary and escape the isolation of the pandemic.
So enter in BUT tread carefully—remember you are crunchy and taste good with chocolate.
