and Other Sweet Nothings

“With anything Ottone writes you know you’ll get solid storytelling set within dark themes. The beauty of his writing, though, is that he is willing to go to those places many authors fear. A phenomenal collection from start to finish, these stories will leave you shattered and shaking!” —Steve Stred, Splatterpunk-Award nominated author of Sacrament and Mastodon

Seventeen stories claw at you from that dark space in the corner of your eye in this new collection by Bram Stoker Award-winning author Robert P. Ottone.

In “Only That You Are Still Sane,” uncover the accidental and bizarre discovery of time travel. Meet an ordinary couple with sexual desires that are anything but ordinary in “Nibble.” Follow the harrowing story of Sleepy Hollow’s town constable in “A Mourning in Sleepy Hollow.” Tread carefully along the precipice of darkness in “A Most Curious Tome.” And in the title story, meet a lonely civil service worker who comes face to face with the darkness eating away at him.

Featuring six previously unpublished stories, Wrapped in Plastic & Other Sweet Nothings will force you to stare into the darkness within.

Pray you don’t blink.

“Ottone captures east coast spooks, specters and evil spirits like nobody’s business. Wrapped in Plastic has new takes on classic genre themes. This collection is packed with creepy fireside stories.” —Freddy Morris, Night of the Living Podcast

“This collection is full of heart and Ottone’s innate sense of what disturbs. With something for everybody contained within, this book is a panacea for the indecisive reader.” —Somer Canon, author of You’re Mine
