Ill at Ease from Penman Press

ill at ease is the new ebook collection from Penman Press, available from Amazon and Smashwords — showcasing three new tales of the macabre.

‘Waiting For Josh’ by Stephen Bacon
‘Pete Richards returns to his hometown for the first time in years. His childhood pal is dying, and Pete realises he must face the past and confront some ugly truths if he is to fulfill his friend’s dying wish. But the events of their childhood would prove to hold far more darkness than he’d ever imagined.’

‘Come See My House In The Pretty Town’ by Mark West
‘When David Willis travels to the picturesque village of Hoelzli, for a reunion with his old college friends Simon & Kim Roberts, he expects a weekend of laughter and reminiscing. But on a visit to the local fair, he manages to lose the Roberts’ seven-year-old son Billy and things take a decided turn for the worse.’

‘Closer Than You Think’  by Neil Williams
‘Dave is a loving family man, with a keen eye for a bargain. So when he spots a brand-new-looking child seat in a skip at the local tip, he decides to take it. After all, he needs one in his car to ferry his daughter around. But then he starts to notice things that seem otherworldly yet still familiar. Could it really be an unquiet spirit, the echo of some past tragedy? Or is it something else? Something that is much closer to home?’

ill at ease is a treat, and I hope it finds many readers.’ — Conrad Williams, British Fantasy Award winning author of One and Loss Of Separation

“The three chilling tales from ill at ease ably demonstrate that horror can be found in the most mundane places, and a sense of unease is always much closer than we think.” — Gary McMahon, author of Pretty Little Dead Things and The Concrete Grove

 Available from Amazon and Smashwords.
