Selling Mama

Another day, another great Halloween sale from Apex Books.  This time around it's Fran Friel's "Mama's Boy", a collection of horrifically good short stories from a Stoker nominated author.  I know I've reviewed this one before somewhere, but darned if I can find it.  Naturally, I enjoyed this book, as I do almost everything from Apex.  I did find that the writing wasn't quite as polished as some of their offerings, but the stories in the collection were great fun to read, and anybody looking for some good fright literature this Halloween would do well to check this one out.

From the publisher:

Apex Halloween One Day Sale-Stoker Nominated: MAMA'S BOY-40% off today only!

Especially at today's one day sale (Oct 22) of 40% off. Drop by the Apex Publications Store and get yours now.

“Fran Friel has a genuine gift for storytelling. Her highly adaptable prose boils over with emotion: love, guilt, fear, and the myriad shades between. Mama’s Boy and Other Dark Tales marks the arrival of a stunning new talent.”
—Michael McBride, author of the God’s End trilogy and Bloodletting
