Trust Issues

Brave Gods Press
1

A collection of stories by Ken Mooney, author of Godhead, The Hades Contract, The Little Book Of The End Of The World, Tackling The Issue and After The Tackle.

Horror is a powerful way of analysing human emotion: anger, fear, addiction, betrayal, resentment. Even arousal.

These are stories with common themes and issues, those of trust, hope, promises, and what ultimately happens when all those nice fluffy, positive things are broken.

-Resident’s Bar, the broken truths of past infidelities that breaks a family apart;

-88 Steps, a tale of addiction and the lies that go along with it;

-The Shortest Night, embracing new members into your family, for better, for worse and ‘til death will you part;

-Black + White: A Picture Of Gray: a short piece about abandonment, inspired by Oscar Wilde;

and

-Worship, a completely new work about betrayal and the anger it causes, addressing sex and sexuality alongside the fears and joys that go along with it.

Although originally published separately, I have brought the stories together to share a common home, one of fear, one of pain, one of the deep and uncomfortable connections between trust and betrayal.

Now a Netflix film starring Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Rosa Salazar and John Malkovich!

Written with the narrative tension of The Road and the exquisite terror of classic Stephen King, Bird Box is a propulsive, edge-of-your-seat horror thriller, set in an apocalyptic near-future world—a masterpiece of suspense from the brilliantly imaginative Josh Malerman.

Something is out there . . .

Something terrifying that must not be seen. One glimpse and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where it came from.

Five years after it began, a handful of scattered survivors remain, including Malorie and her two young children. Living in an abandoned house near the river, she has dreamed of fleeing to a place where they might be safe. Now, that the boy and girl are four, it is time to go. But the journey ahead will be terrifying: twenty miles downriver in a rowboat—blindfolded—with nothing to rely on but her wits and the children’s trained ears. One wrong choice and they will die. And something is following them. But is it man, animal, or monster?

Engulfed in darkness, surrounded by sounds both familiar and frightening, Malorie embarks on a harrowing odyssey—a trip that takes her into an unseen world and back into the past, to the companions who once saved her. Under the guidance of the stalwart Tom, a motely group of strangers banded together against the unseen terror, creating order from the chaos. But when supplies ran low, they were forced to venture outside—and confront the ultimate question: in a world gone mad, who can really be trusted?

Interweaving past and present, Josh Malerman’s breathtaking debut is a horrific and gripping snapshot of a world unraveled that will have you racing to the final page.
