About Paul M. Feeney
Paul M. Feeney was born in Scotland in 1975 and currently lives in Aberdeen. He has been reading and watching horror, dark fantastical stories, and other speculative genre works as long as he can remember. With this deep love of story and the fantastic, it was perhaps inevitable that he would eventually turn his hand to writing his own tales, though it took him until 2011 to decide to write his first proper short story.
Since then, he has penned a number of diverse works, some of which have found homes in various small presses. His first published short (only his second written), THE WEIGHT OF THE OCEAN, was released by Phrenic Press in 2015 as a Kindle only. This was followed by a number of various other short story acceptances, through such publishers as Sirens Call Publications, April Moon Books, The Sinister Horror Company, and numerous others.
His first novella, THE LAST BUS, was released through Crowded Quarantine Publications mid-2015 (as a limited edition signed & numbered paperback; sadly, no longer in print). His second novella, KIDS, was published by Dark Minds Press mid-2016. His stories range from character and plot driven pulpy horror/SF, with the occasional dash of fantasy, to more emotive, reflective pieces. He is currently beavering away on various projects, including his first novel.
Published in early 2020 was CURSED, a Garrison Wake novelette, through Demain Publishing. This is the second Wake story to be released following THOSE WHO LIVE IN SHADOW, which appeared in the fourth issue of Occult Detective Quarterly. Wake is a shape-shifting private investigator in the city of Detroit, who often deals with cases related to the Shadow World (the collective name for all manner of supernatural and paranormal beings which exist in his world). The author has written a number of stories with this character, and intends to pursue many more, ranging from shorts to novellas and novels.
He has also begun writing quieter, emotive works (whilst still retaining genre 'flavours') using the pseudonym Paul Michaels. The first of these stories was published early 2019, in Corpus Press' In Darkness Delight: Masters of Midnight anthology. Also under this name, he contributes the occasional review for premier horror website, This is Horror.

- Mark Tufo author of the Zombie Fallout series
"The stories in The Queuing Dead are perfect for fans of both Horror and Zombie Fiction. All the stories show the horror of people trapped in a zombie apocalypse. There are many characters whom the reader will cheer on when they survive or feel sadness when they don’t. In other stories, there are characters who are sociopaths, placing them clearly in the Horror genre even before that moment when the zombie hordes arrive. The Queuing Dead is a fascinating collection of short stories that provide different scenarios of what might happen if the zombie apocalypse broke out in the UK. "

Some tales told only in whispers.
Under the paper thin veneer of our sanity is a world that exists. Hidden just beyond, in plain sight, waiting to consume you should you dare stray from the street-lit paths that sedate our fears.
For centuries the Black Room has stored stories of these encounters, suppressing the knowledge of the rarely seen. Protecting the civilised world from its own dark realities.
The door to the Black Room has once again swung open to unleash twenty one masterful tales of the macabre from the twisted minds of a new breed of horror author.
The Black Room holds many secrets.
Dare you enter… again?
The Sinister Horror Company is proud to present The Black Room Manuscripts Volume Two. All profits made from the sale of this book will go to Alzheimer's Research UK
For this book, we collected stories of monsters doing epic battle with other monsters! The beasts could be classical by design with a unique twist, or they could be spawned straight from the author's imagination. The only rule: there must be a clear-cut winner at the end of each story; one of the creatures had to die!
Some of the stories in this collection pit a single monster against another, while others are all-out gang warfare. Some are campy, some serious, but all a fight for the ages!
It's time to get your game face on for twelve tales worthy of the title Monster Brawl!
**No monsters were hurt in the writing of these stories**
They’re shambling toward you, feet dragging on the broken roadway. Arms outstretched, faces slack, they move as if they’re tracking your scent on the wind. You want to run, but you know there’s nowhere to hide.
Aware of their insatiable hunger, fear paralyzes you. These things were once human, people someone loved. Is there anything left inside them – some sliver of humanity that may save you from this nightmare? Your mind doesn’t want to accept the inevitable, a single thought consumes you: what are they thinking?
With your chance of escape dwindling, you snap out of it and run like hell knowing there is little to no hope; fate is coming for you. Soon you will see what they see Through Clouded Eyes...

Writing about Garrison Wake, author Paul M. Feeney said: “He lives and works in Detroit, with feet in the worlds of the supernatural, the criminal, and the human, but swearing loyalty to none. He’s kind of an anti-hero, vigilante, who hates injustice but operates outside the law most of the time. He believes himself to be ‘lost’, to be already damned, so doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty…I like his cynical, sardonic approach to things, but also share his sense of justice (though perhaps not the methods, something I touch on in this story and want to explore more in further tales). He’s big, six-and-a-half-foot tall, and looks like a cross between Keanu Reeves and Brandon Lee in The Crow; he also tends to dress like the latter character, though without the clown makeup. He’s older than he looks by a few decades, and has a shady, petty-criminal past (though I’ve yet to fully investigate that myself). And he’s a loner, though people have become almost friends with him over the years, and he has a good circle of close acquaintances…”
