Just in time for Halloween! Immerse yourself in four tales of love and gothic horror in this anthology by Eli Easton. Each story is novella length.

“The Bird”
Colin Hastings is sent to Jamaica in 1870 to save his father’s sugar cane plantation. If he succeeds, he can marry his fiancée back in London and take his place in proper English society. But Colin finds more than he bargained for on the island. His curiosity about Obeah, the native folk magic, leads him to agree to a dangerous ritual where he is offered his heart’s most secret desire—one he’s kept deeply buried all his life. What happens when a proper English gentleman has his true sensual nature revealed and freed by the Obeah spirits?

“Reparation”
On the harsh planet of Kalan, weakness is not tolerated. When young spore farmer Edward suffers a carriage accident that kills his mail-order bride and his factory manager, Edward has little chance of survival, until Knox—an enormous “reconstitute” slave—plucks him from disaster.

Recons are part machine, part human remains from executed Federation prisoners. But Knox is different from other recons. He can read and has flashes of brilliance. With no one else to rely on over the bleak winter, Edward forms an alliance with Knox, and against social taboos, they become friends. Edward struggles against his growing lust for the large humanoid, and while Knox thrives in his new life, memories of his past torment him.
A twist of fate brought Knox and Edward together, but there will be a price to pay in blood when they learn how deeply their lives truly intersect

“Among the Dead”
Ever since his accident, Neil Gaven sees dead people. He’s isolated himself, unable to bear the constant barrage of sadness and grief. But a gentle ghost grabs his attention on the bus one day. He seems to understand, to have some secret to impart. Neil works to interpret the ghost’s clues. Then they lead him to Trist, a homeless young man who is also tormented by spirits. Are they two of a kind? Maybe together they can find a way to live among the dead.

“The Black Dog”
Constable Hayden MacLairty is used to life being dull around the tiny hamlet of Laide on the north Scottish coast. They get occasional tourists, “monster hunters” interested in the local legend of the Black Dog, but Hayden thinks that’s only a myth. A rash of sheep killings, a murdered hiker, huge footprints, and sightings of the Black Dog force Hayden to rethink the matter.

With the help of Simon Corto, a writer from New York doing research for a book about the Black Dog, Hayden tries to figure out why the enormous hound is reappearing. Hayden finds himself strongly attracted to another person for the first time in his life. But between the danger stalking the hills, Simon’s inevitable return to New York, and Hayden’s mother’s illness, true love may be more of a phantom than the Black Dog.

Excerpt

From The Black Dog by Eli Easton

Hayden had had an uneasy feeling the past few months now, something not right, something threatening hidden just out of reach in the shadows of the rocks. Fanciful bollocks. But the dead sheep were not his imagination, nor was the stranger. His hand went to the strap of the shotgun slung over his back. He didn’t normally carry a gun, but tonight he’d taken the weapon earmarked for vermin control from the locked safe in his office in case he came across any rogue dogs. He crept forward fast, stooping low.

The figure seemed to be wandering aimlessly, oblivious to Hayden’s approach. Hayden was only twenty feet away when the figure turned and spotted him. The man startled, then ran.

There was nothing for it. Hayden dropped the shotgun from his back, broke into a run, and tackled the man. The pair of them sailed through the air before they hit the ground hard.

“Jesus Christ, I think you broke something!” the man gasped. He sounded winded—and American. Hayden felt a twinge of guilt for landing on him so hard, but the man was where he oughtn’t be and when he oughtn’t be there. Hayden pushed to his feet and grabbed the man’s elbow to drag him upward.

“Who the hell are you? And what in God’s name are you doin’ out here?” he demanded, anger making him sharp.

The man straightened as much as he could whilst clutching his diaphragm. He looked up at Hayden with resentment and did a double take, his eyes getting round. “Dear God, you’re big. I was… I was just taking a walk. I sincerely hope you don’t intend to kill me.”

“Well, I might do. This here is private property, ye ken. And it’s a helluva cold night for walkies.”

“You’re telling me!” The man shivered. “Look, Dylan said I could come.”

“What?”

The man sighed. “Fuck, it’s colder than a snowman’s ass out here. Look, Dylan was in the pub tonight, and we were talking about the Black Dog. He said he’d seen it out here. I asked if I could come look around and he said ‘sure.’ So I—”

So the man was a monster-hunter and Dylan had been shooting his mouth off again. Typical. “Aye? He was probably three sheets to the wind when he said it.”

“Yes, but so was I, so it doesn’t count,” explained the American. He winced. “Christ, I think you broke a rib.”

He lost a leg to save a community’s connectivity. He also lost his sense of balance – in more ways than one.

Equine therapy can help him regain physical balance, while a Hellenistic blacksmith and horse trainer helps him regain footing as a gay man deserving of love.

“We could pray about it.”

“To the Greek gods?” Joe asked.

“Unless you think that’s a bad idea.”

“I’m not a praying kind of man. How is it done?”

“Well, I’d find a big leaf, put a little food on it, and let it float down the creek as an offering, and just sit quietly for a moment with the intention of making my desires heard by the gods while I try like the dickens to figure shit out for myself. They don’t coddle and don’t like cry-babies.”

“I always figured it was best to stay under the radar when it came to spiritual matters.”

“The gods used to thrive on formality and sacrifice. Now, small offerings and contemplation work.”

“Like you giving the energy of your climaxes to Aphrodite?”

“It worked. You’re here.”

Bucking Hay Cover

Blurb

Judah “Hay” El-Bara is a nineteen-year-old sacrificial bridegroom to a harvest goddess long worshipped by his traditionalist parents and community. For him to seed the harvest would be a lie. He isn’t attracted to women.

Embracing his sexuality, Hay begins a relationship with a stranger named Buck. But Buck isn’t exactly what he seems. Buck is a mystical vessel of renewal. Hard work may bring salvation, but harder work can change the world.

The elder-brother was apoplectic.

“Holy Harvest. Judah, it is you. And Beck. Bless the mother and the seed…Judah, what have you done?”

Hay closed his eyes and took a deep breath. He squared his shoulders and made no attempt to cover himself. He palmed Buck’s face and drew him in for a quick kiss. “Call me Hay. And what we do is honor the harvest, brother.”

A clap of thunder rolled across the heavens and a heavy rain began. Hard rain, alive with thunder and bejeweled with lightning.

Buck laughed. “Comes now the hard rain that will wash away the old. Trust me.”
