Albie Dammned

Young Willie runs away from his abusive life in rural Nebraska to join the Albey Brothers Traveling Circus. A good-natured soul, he is eventually put in charge of a carnival freak show. There Willie becomes acquainted with society’s “outcasts”—living, breathing, feeling people with oddities and deformities whom he is expected to put on display. One day, Junior, a young lad who possesses almost-demonic features, is brought to the circus. He becomes Willie’s ward. As their friendship deepens, Willie must face the biggest decision of his life. In the process, he learns what it truly means to be human.

“The origin myth, preserved in the notes, apparently taken while playing poker at the Rusty Pick Saloon, by Penwick Gathright, founder, editor, and publisher of the Silvercliff Bugle. Never developed into an article so far as anyone is able to ascertain. Odd, given Gathright’s later fascination with the exploits of the notorious badman.”

Storylandia 15 review at Amazon

“Julie Travis’ Storylandia collection is a must for any devoted follower of weird/dark/occult fiction. … I’d also comfortably file these stories between the stranger works of, say, Jonathan Carroll or Haruki Murakami, … transcend their genre trappings into a far more magical (sur)realist territory. … I can guarantee you’ll speed through these tales and be waiting as impatiently as I for a follow up.”
Storylandia 12 Amazon review, by Jon Yates, October 22, 2016

Thank you, Mr. Yates!

And in the realm of follow up:
Ms. Travis has stories in 2 other Storylandia issues:
“The Falling Man” in Issue 7
and
“The Ferocious Night” in Issue 12 and will have a book from the Wapshott Press in the near future as well.

Who Killed Toby Glovins?
Kathryn L. Ramage
ISBN: 978-1-942007-10-4

Freddie Babington has solved two mysteries. When he travels to Norfolk in the autumn of 1923 to attend the wedding of Amelia Marsh and Evelyn Tollarhithe, he doesn’t anticipate a third murder investigation. Then, on the evening before the wedding, a friend of the groom is found stabbed under circumstances that look compromising for Evelyn. Freddie agrees to take the case for Amelia’s sake. As Freddie digs deeper behind the friendship between Evelyn and Toby Glovins, and uncovers old family secrets, he learns that the question of who murdered Toby is more complicated than it first appears. And so, he discovers, are his feelings for the disappointed bride.

Kathryn L. Ramage has a B.A. and M.A. in English lit and has been writing for as long as she can remember. She lives in Maryland with three cats. As well as being the author of numerous short stories, novellas, and essays, she is the author of “Maiden in Light,” “The Wizard’s Son,” and “Sonnedragon,” novels set on an alternate Earth whose history has diverged from ours somewhere during the medieval period. All three are part of an intended series of fantasy novels that mostly take place in a dukedom called the Northlands, a part of the Norman Empire that roughly covers the north-eastern U.S. For more information, please visit her website at www.klr.wapshottpress.com.

Storylandia 14 review on Amazon

“A well-written, scathing examination of 21st-century culture and journalism, done with tongue firmly planted in cheek. Mr. Denton is at his best creating characters with an economy most cultural commentators sorely lack. He manages to evoke deep characters with a minimum of fuss or actual details, leaving just enough to the reader’s imagination. A short, fun read that is definitely recommended.”
Amazon review by Charlie Cottrell, Storylandia 14 this review is on the Kindle edition, but there’s also a paperback version
