It’s that time of year again! If you’re looking for a fun (ie scary!) xmas read…check out this recently released anthology!
Christmas is usually the time for cheer, but it can also be the time for fear, spirits and those things that go bump in the night. This year the scribes of Scriborium Guild came together to create a collection of short stories with a horror or supernatural angle and a Christmas twist. A strange and challenging creative venture to be sure, but one that brought together a brave group of writers and authors determined to spin tales for the festive season that gave more than one meaning to the idea of the spirit of Christmas.
This collection of short stories is the result and it is amazing how each author has found a different theme to explore, yet the stories within fit together well and prove that even with a tight deadline writers will write and rise to any challenge. Some of these stories are shorter than others, some are scarier than others. Whether or not these tales will frighten or unnerve you all depends on your own background and point of view, but each one makes for an entertaining read. So curl up by the fire and devour this anthology in one sitting or enjoy one story each evening during the holidays.
The Scriborium Guild is a new writers’ guild, each of its members helping each other promote their works, perfect their trade, and genuinely provide support to those who truly love one of the most solitary passions in any day and age.
