A Collection of Dark Stories

Arthur Herbert’s first collection of short fiction highlights his knack for storytelling and twist endings.

Here you’ll read about two women on a lonely road trip through the West Texas desert (“Sisters”); a patient riding out Hurricane Ida in the hospital “(Lockdown”); an accountant who comes home from work to find his neighbor has died (“Mister B.’s Goodbye”); and a ritual morning for some Jackson Square regulars (“The Crescent City Coffee Klatch”). Some characters are dark, some funny, some cynical, some noble, but all are absolutely authentic and memorable. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to experience the products of Arthur Herbert’s vivid imagination.

""Herbert's tales have a solid, unnerving twist, yet it's the unforgettable cast that truly drives the narratives."            "
