Longshot Island: Hidden Nature
Vol. 4 includes stories by Adithi Rao, Almari Randall, Lisa Walter, Karl “Tony” Ginyard, Ann Syréhn Tomasevic, and Pete Johnson.Who can really see into the depths of our hidden selves? Who can tell us what resides in the farthest places that make up who we are? Can we discover our hidden nature in a mirror? From our closest friends? From our mothers and fathers?Our hidden nature might come out when we move to a new town or a new country. It might be seen in a leaf we pick up from the ground, as we pry it apart, wondering why we feel older today. It becomes apparent when a family acts out roles around the dinner table. Or when grandma forgets your name. Or when someone we love leaves this world behind.As a publisher, it occurred to me that writing is about the transition in the lives of the characters we construct. It’s that hidden nature that comes out at the end of the story. It’s those thought provoking moments when we realize who we really are. That transform us into something new.We all have a hidden nature inside us. Take a look at yourself. Look at the hidden you. Welcome to your hidden nature.

Blacklist Publishing: Free Sampler
Blacklist Publishing promises to bring you the kinds of books the other presses do not dare: the forbidden, the forgotten, the condemned. Our wonderful list exclusively features titles from authors whose works have been burned, banished, or simply neglected by history. From a book for adolescents on the problems of turning yourself into an artificial vampire (Flesh of the Fallen), to a chilling dystopian novella written by a literary computer (Beyond the Senses). From a seditious fragment of an ancient hypertext (Theatre of the Gods) to a book which proposes, with heretic bravado, that we are all the fleshy descendants of old gods (The Gorgon Wakes). With these controversial titles and many more available to preview in this sampler, we are expecting a hearty series of battles with clerics, politicians, frigid lunatics and conservative activists.

Proudly brought to you by Crystal Lake Publishing - Tales from the Darkest DepthsInterview with the Authors:So what makes Tales from The Lake so special?Jennifer Loring: Tales from the Lake is one of the few anthology series where you can find a balance of established horror authors alongside new and emerging talent.J. Daniel Stone: Tales from the Lake is special, I think, first and foremost in that it's an open-themed horror collection. Themes tend to—more than I want to admit, and some might disagree—constrict writers. I don't like that about themes. But with Tales from the Lake we are reading stories by writers who are not given any rules. Just write what one loves and submit. That's wonderful.Tell us more about your story, and in which volume it appeared?Jennifer Loring: My story “The Fine Art of Wrecking” was the first place winner of the Tales from the Lake competition. It's based on the traditional legend of wreckers on the East Coast using false lights to run ships ashore to be plundered, but takes a Lovecraftian turn.J. Daniel Stone: My story “Alternative Muses” was the 2nd place winner in the original short story writing contest. The story focuses on a young couple who live on the fringes of society, but who soon are taken back to reality when they get pregnant. Things take a dark turn, and the need to transcend normality and complacency drive this story to a wicked ending.
