Strange Sudbury Stories just in time for Halloween
Three local horror and science fiction authors have teamed up to release a spooky book of Sudbury-themed stories just in time for Halloween.
Mark Leslie, Sean Costello, and Scott Overton just published Strange Sudbury Stories, an anthology featuring six eerie and speculative tales about ghosts, monsters, and everything in between.
“Sudbury is not only in our blood, but it also courses through our veins, is a part of the very breaths we inhale and exhale, the way that those deposits of nickel, gold, copper, and platinum, which slammed into the Earth via a crashing meteorite some 1.8 million ears ago enrich the very bedrock grounds that formed the Sudbury basin,” said a book teaser.
“Something else courses through (our) veins. A seemingly supernatural connection to the strange; a penchant for exploring speculative tales; stories that do not turn away from the shadows, but instead explore them, embrace them.”
Readers are invited to join the authors as they dig below the surface in a “veritable mining operation of fear, speculation, and strange wonder.”
The anthology is currently available at most places where eBooks can be purchased, including Amazon, Kobo, Indigo, and Apple.
The print version is still in the works, but Sudbury readers are in luck, as Leslie organized an emergency order with a Montreal-based printer and 75 copies of the book should be delivered to Coles in the New Sudbury Centre next week.
