'These darkly comic tales place the author snugly between Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett. Be sure: Chris Fielden is one funny feller.' Allen Ashley, British Fantasy Award winner.

About The Dark Lane Anthology

The Dark Lane anthologies are published by Dark Lane Books, an independent publisher based in Bristol in the United Kingdom. They specialise in 'weird' tales.

I have 2 stories featured in this book. They are called 'Death of a Superhero' and 'Devil's Crush'.

'Devil's Crush' is available to read for free on this website.

You can also read 'Devil's Crush' in the free PDF taster of my book, How to Write a Short Story, Get Published & Make Money. It is used in the opening section as a case study, showing how I got it published for the first time in Writers' Forum by winning their short story competition.

If you enjoy 'Devil's Crush', the other stories in this collection are likely to appeal to you.

Dark Lane books publish anthologies twice a year. They ask for unusual, quirky, weird and/or wonderful stories. If you write unusual tales, it's a great place to submit. You can learn more on the Dark Lane Books website.
