Short Stories

Formats & editions

Now published in ebook format for the first time, a collection of classic short, dark – sometimes darkly funny – tales of urban unease from the acclaimed author of Roofworld, Spanky and the Bryant & May mysteries.

A popular businessman awakes one morning to discover that everyone hates him. A young woman must surrender her virginity to a grotesque enemy in order to fulfil her family's destiny. An extraordinary chain of events is set in motion when a cocktail cabinet falls out of the sky and kills a farmer. A depressed man decides to make his suicide the most exciting thing that's ever happened to him...

Oozing paranoia, black humour and a certain amount of old-fashioned gore, this is a collection of classic Christopher Fowler short stories - each telling a chilling tale of desperate individuals who learn the hard way that ...flesh wounds.
