Scary Stories for a Good Cause

Now a Horror Anthologies Amazon Bestseller


In November 2018, fire broke out on Camp Creek Road, and soon raced through Butte County, California. By the time the fire was finally extinguished, the town of Paradise had been scoured from the map. Nearly 100 people died. Damage ran to an estimated $16 billion. The disaster has been named the Camp Fire, in memory of its place of origin.

The horror writers of Northern California rallied to raise money for the survivors. Tales for the Camp Fire ranges from fairytale to science fiction, from psychological terror to magical realism, from splatterpunk to black humor, all rounded out by a messed-up post-apocalyptic cookbook. Through these pages roam werewolves, serial killers, a handful of ghosts, plenty of zombies, Cthulhu cultists, mad scientists, and a pair of conjoined twins.

All profits from the sale of this anthology will be donated to Camp Fire relief and recovery efforts.

Available in Print & Ebook on Amazon. Thank you for your support!
