Publisher's Summary

Eleven bizarre short stories from the mad mind of Thomas S. Flowers ranging from Cronenberg-styled body horror to John Carpenter-inspired dark science fiction. Stories include:


"Gone": A UFO crashes on a family farm setting in motion events that will lead to tragic results. 
"Happiness": A peculiar salesman comes to Happiness, Texas with nothing but an scarlet suit and a briefcase, and the ability to resurrect the dead...but his services come at a cost. 
"The Abigail": A crack-whip special tactics squad investigates a supposedly derelict spaceship only to find that some things are better left alone. 
"Ultrasound": Soon-to-be parents face their worst nightmare come true.
"The Witch of Staunton County": Zealots find that sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. 
"Marrow": A homeless man is introduced to a secret Order with curious appetites.
"The Ascension of Henry Porter": With a prognosis grim as his, Henry will do whatever it takes to cheat death...but as the saying goes, there are worst things than dying. 
"Apocalypse Meow": Jill always hated cats. Now weird glowing strays are invading her town. 
"The Foree Farm Massacre": He came home from war with a curse. Now the townspeople will learn just how dangerous he really is. 
"Beautiful Ugly": Martin wanted nothing but for the world to see him as he truly was. Beautiful. Exotic. To be seen as Martha. But when he attempts the impossible at the promise of a strange doctor, what people see is not him at all, but a monster. 
"The Philosopher": Even in a nuclear-eradicated world populated by mutants, the truth must be heard.

Short, Weird Tales

Thomas S. Flowers writes some of the most bizarre and compelling content I've ever read. This collection of short form horror definitely delivers on the 'bizarre' part I was expecting! As with most collections, not every piece is a winner. That said, I found something to enjoy about every single one of the stories. I also think there is something to be said for listening to short stories as a change of pace from long narratives. If you're not prepared for some serious weirdness, this collection is not for you! Tim Carper does a fine job with narration, though I'm not sure he was the best choice for this collection.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

A Good Listen

I enjoyed this book. I am a new listener of Thomas Flowers and liked what I heard so i will be exploring more of his works. Although I thought a few stories could have used a bit more background or explanation, the stories were enjoyable. I particularly liked The Ascension of Henry Porter. My only real critique was all of the background noise. At times there was enough background noise to make me think there was something wrong with my phone or PC when listening.
I provided this review voluntarily even though this book was given to me for free at my request.
