About The Book

A brand-new collection from Norman Partridge! This volume gathers several previously uncollected stories together with two new stories written for this collection. The 24 stories that make up this collection span the length of Partridge’s writing career. It also features an 8,500-word introduction, as well as a complete bibliography. As an added bonus, the limited edition also features an unpublished piece of juvenilia, “Castle of the Honda Monsters”.

- In a suburban American ghost town, a frightened boy armed with a BB gun stands alone against a soul-stealing stranger.

- During the Great Depression, outlaw rivals of Bonnie and Clyde battle for their lives in a bullet-riddled cornfield that holds the secret of love and death

- Returning to Texas beneath a sky the color of a woman’s heart, the man who slew Count Dracula brings a coffin and a thirst for vengeance to the town that abandoned him.
