Please join us in welcoming James Chambers to the shadows. James is contributing a nasty little addition to the table of contents with his story, “Odd Quahogs,” which reinforces the notion that there are some towns you just shouldn’t go to, some people you just shouldn’t do business with and some things you just shouldn’t eat. More additions are in the works.

SOMS-COVER-619

 

What happens when idyllic small-towns, and the simple folk who inhabit them, collide with inexplicable evil borne of a vast and uncaring cosmos? Imagine a series of stories set in a golden era of American life, where worldly troubles are regarded from a distance, if at all.

Hear the buzz of playing cards clipped in children’s spokes echo down quiet lanes. Smell the faint aroma of rich tobacco smoke from an old man’s pipe on a shady boulevard. Listen to the gossip of small towns where everyone knows everyone’s business.

Or do they?

Sometimes, deadly secrets lurk out in the barn. Sometimes, unimaginable evil awaits us in the root cellar. Sometimes, we fall under the sway of the Shadows Over Main Street.

Come inside and sit for a spell…
