THE HOT CHICK (And Other Weird Tales) by Charles Christian
Out now on Amazon Kindle at only £1.53/$2.99
A bumper collection of 13 sci-fi, urban and dark fantasy short stories set in the present day or very near future that give everyday existence a nudge into the realms of the fantastic, the weird, the supernatural, the horrific and the surreal.
These are stories where a casual sexual encounter can embroil a person in dangerous liaisons with ghosts, aliens or even vengeful gods. Yet also where the bizarre can be found lurking just around the corner, across a cup of cooling mocha in a coffee shop, over a glass of chilled rose wine in a beach side cafe in the Cote d’Azur or in the next message on your mobile phone. (And if you commute via Manningtree, you might not want to read the story “The Last Train Home” !)
Some of these stories were previously published in print only in 2011 as This is the Quickest Way Down.
“…. delivers the goods….”
“….buckets of wry humour….”
‘…..smooth and elegant.”
“….style is spare and urgent…”
“….in a nutshell, the man can write.”
