Beyond Castle Frankenstein in Journals of Horror: Found Fiction

SHORT STORY ANTHOLOGIES are having a lively come back, and Journals of Horror: Found Fiction is one that breaks out of the boundaries. And it’s just released today on Amazon.

Here’s a peek into my story Beyond Castle Frankenstein.

images-1A letter is found written by Mary Shelley (author of Frankenstein). Mary recounts a night when she attempts to conjure up the ghost of her dead husband, poet Percy Bysshe Shelley.


Terry M. West and Pleasant Storm Entertainment, Inc. present a revolutionary approach to the horror fiction anthology. Found Fiction is a collection of terror inspired by the mechanics of the found footage horror film and this anthology is the first of its kind in literature. Some of the talent here are authors Michael Thomas-Knight, Wesley Thomas, Michael McGlade, Indie Book Award Finalist Todd Keisling, DS Ullery, Paula Cappa, and some twenty more new voices in the supernatural, mystery, and paranormal genres.

Journals of Horror: Found Fiction, on Amazon.com in Ebook for Kindle. Print edition to be released soon.

Devil in a Teapot

The Brass Teapot   by Tim Macy (2007)

Tuesday’s Tale of Terror   September 30, 2014


(Skull Appreciation Society, bigfishsmallpot.com)




Are you attracted to mysterious objects of doom? Cursed pens, haunted vases, psychic jewelry, evil portraits, poppets, mummy icons? Teapots are famous for having tempests.



Tim Macy’s (a Kansas City contemporary writer) The Brass Teapot is a haunted story and perfect as we enter the Halloween season. Alice and John are traveling back from visiting their daughter in college and during their rest stop they come upon an old woman of Eastern culture who is wearing leather pants and her black toes poke out. Maybe she’s a witch? Without a single word, she shoves a teapot into Alice’s hands. Alice takes the teapot home and life changes dramatically for the couple. Unusual action begins to happen to this couple who are struggling to meet their finances and maintain their marriage.








This bras teapot might very well be haunted. More likely, this teapot possesses a magick power that leads Alice and John to rather violent if not profitable ends.

I can also recommend critically acclaimed author Terry M. West’s The Giving of Things Cold and Cursed, which is a very short fiction (Kindle Single) about a parapsychologist with a Black Room of things cold and cursed. The story hinges on what is absent to the eye and yet present in the soul. 99cents  Available on Amazon.com.



For a CLASSIC tale of cursed objects, nothing beats W.W. Jacobs’ The Monkey’s Paw,. Also Arthur Conan Doyles’ The Leather Funnel, both reads here at Tales of Terror.
