The Hill's are alive with horror, mystery and intrigue.
Short Stories & Such is a tantalizing (if not terrifying) anthology of short stories, flash fiction and poetry combining popular titles by Janna Hill. Bonus: New releases including Hemingway’s Beloved, which was originally published in the Horror Writer’s Poetry Showcase, Volume I, along with expanded versions of the original shorts. Following a four star review of Once Upon a Dead Gull one of Amazon's top 500 reviewers had this to say, "As Janna/Joe Hill notes in her final chapter, "Could you...would you dare to know me?" The vignettes in this collection all concern themselves with that border between life and death. This is the liminal state where souls confuse their place on that line. These are small stories , but strike that eerie part of our lives. Would you know yourself?"
Reviews from the Beta Group: “I count myself lucky to have been included in the small group of beta readers who got a sneak peek at these shorts before the rest of the world. Not in any particular order: Ms. Hill presents a compilation of two flash fiction thrillers with Scary Man Bridge and Telephone Frenzy. The first being a 1000 word (she may have cut it to 999) exposé of a middle aged man who delights in playfully frightening little girls until confronted with his own fable. The latter is a 500 word masterpiece for word count equaling a complete and riveting story of a woman pushed over the edge by a pre-recorded telephone solicitation. Roses From Ishmael is a short tale that begins with a blue collar worker buying flowers and beer on his way home after an apparent spat and concludes with. Oops, don’t want to spoil it. Just know it is deliciously twisted. Odd Man Out is an emotional short told in first person by a young woman/girl with a morbid fondness for cemeteries. Lastly this little book concludes with a poem titled Would You Know Me. One does not have to be a lover of poetry to appreciate the story told in quirky limerick. Best wishes Ms. Hill, I suspect you and Joe will have an international hit on your hands.” L.B January
Perpetual Darkness is told from the man's perspective; this is his side of the story. Max Hubbard is a drifter and like most transients he prefers living a life of anonymity. That is until he lays eyes on Abigail. "He merely followed his instinct, not giving any thought as to why he watched her."
