The Death of an Author





“S.L. Edwards presents stories that should be savored like a fine liquor, tales hauntingly crafted with notes of darkness, a touch of madness, spiced with melancholy, and given just one insubstantial twist of hope.” —Peter Rawlik, author of The Peaslee Papers

In his second short story collection, S. L. Edwards offers tales of fantasy and horror, all-too human and all-too terrifying. In this volume, you’ll find stories of vampires lording over the zombie apocalypse, gunslingers fighting their way through haunted mining towns, dragons at the end of the world, and the death of an author.

At the intersection of pulp horror, weird fiction, and a general love for fantasy, The Death of an Author is a kinetic collection, with offerings both for those who enjoyed Whiskey and Other Unusual Ghosts and for new readers as well.

“Old gods meet new worlds in exquisitely sketched tales; monsters walk among men, and S. L. Edwards asks us to consider which is truly which. Each story is a fierce-beating heart carved straight from the chest. An intelligent, beautiful, and diverse collection.” —Laura Mauro, author of Sing Your Sadness Deep


“S.L. Edwards shows his range and his talent in this heads-up-and-take-notice collection. The Death of an Author is a collection that sings, stings, and swaggers.” —Matthew M. Bartlett, author of Gateways to Abomination
