Some nightmares possess panache, tripping into a subconscious with surprising delicacy to first creep into the dreamer’s trust.

Fairy Herds & Mythscapes

A 3rd collection of short horror by Kerry E.B. Black,
author of 2020 TAZ award-winning short story collection Herd of Nightmares.

This latest volume of short stories stampedes into the realm of tales inspired by global fairy tales and myths.

To survive a trip through the vale of the fair folk, you must know the rules. Be polite, but don't say thank you. Iron brings death to the fey, so if you carry it, be prepared for aggression. Stick to the path, keep your word, and be industrious. And NEVER eat goblin food.

(There are many more. They can be fun.)

Book 1 of the Season of Growing Series

~by Kerry E.B. Black


Shy Casey Adams never imagined the changes a secret campus
ceremony would bring to her already complicated life.

Now, she’s plagued with horrifying visions. Her new friends share disturbing dreams of a mysterious and beguiling woman, and they all seem different, and not necessarily for the better.

Ol’ Nor’Eastern College is besieged by grisly murders and Casey worries they may have unwittingly unleashed more than their inner potentials during their strange ceremony. They may have released something primal. Something hungry. Something sinister.

Fans of magical realism will enjoy this debut Young Adult contemporary exploration of the paranormal, of responsibility to family, friends, and community, and of self-acceptance.
