Black feathers and Dead Things
Black Feathers and Dead Things is a lullaby that’ll make you hear scratching beneath your bed.
A graveyard. A corpse. A flock of ravens.
In fairy tales, death comes in many forms. When something escapes the underworld and begins to consume the birds’ kingdom, their knights are sent to defend their ancestral home. Will the noble corvids repel this creeping threat, or will they suffer a fate darker than their feathers?
"A deft little tale that brings contemporary horror into collision with an almost Dunsanian graveyard fantastic. Who wins? The reader does."
-Brian Evenson, author of A Collapse of Horses
"Delightfully creepy! This fully inhabited world arrives in perfect timing for Halloween. And creates a new appreciation for ravens."
-Aimee Bender, author of The Girl in the Flammable Skirt and more
"Black Feathers and Dead Things" is a darkly charming tale that combines whimsy and the macabre. It is meant to be read aloud, the words rolling uncomfortably in your mouth as you savor them. It's bloody poetry."
-Mercedes M. Yardley, author of Pretty Little Dead Girls
"A macabre, delectable tale, for those who prefer their bedtime stories a little more Grimm..."
-Alex R. Kahler, author of Runebinder and The Immortal Circus
