Ginger Nuts of Horror
“I saw him Mr Munroe.” A sly look lit up Jimmy’s blinking eyes. “He’s always chasing you.”
Raym’s hand froze in front of his chest, creeping back up towards his throat again. “What?”
“In a funny square van.” The kid blinked, blinked, blinked. He wooshed his hands either side of his body like he was starting a drag race, and Raym flinched again. “It’s got black tails – really, really looong ones, like party streamers!”
All Raym wants to do is give up smoking. So why is his entire life falling apart? Why are new mistakes and old terrors conspiring against him? Why is he being plagued by the very worst spectre from his childhood? And why does giving up suddenly -- horrifyingly -- feel much, much more like giving in?
Coming soon from TTA Press, this novella from Carole Johnstone promises to be as as funny as it is horrific.
Available direct from TTA Press for £10 (post-free) however a five-novella subscriptions is just £30 (post-free anywhere in the world).
Featuring wraparound cover art by Warwick Fraser-Coombe Cold Turkey looks as though it is going to be a winner.
