Deadly Encounters – An anthology of short stories

The stories within this evil tome are filled with the bleakest and blackest of happenstances: stories of murder, of the macabre, of the gruesome.

Deadly Encounters is an exploration of all that’s weird. As an appetiser, consider this: where else could you have a conversation with death other than in Jeannie’s garden? Who else would buy you a ticket and send you off on a surreal train journey with a witch and her canaries?

Your main course? Indulge yourself! Among these twelve short stories you’ll discover serial killers, unearth their peculiar peccadillos and trivial motivations, and you’ll glean an understanding just how sweet a dish, revenge can be.

And finally for dessert and your own delectation … why not utilise a number of body parts for untoward purposes?

How deadly can an encounter with Jeannie Wycherley’s mind be? The answer lies within.
