Ceci n’est pas une histoire d’horreur.
Delve into an anthology of transgressive horror stories with Ceci n’est pas une histoire d’horreur (This is Not a Horror Story), the debut anthology from Night Terror Novels, edited by J.D. Keown.
Inspired by the iconic “Ceci n'est pas une pipe” found in surrealist René Magritte’s 1929 work, The Treachery of Images, This is Not a Horror Story offers a collection of original fiction both abstract and haunting from fifteen bold, exciting voices writing in the genre today. Take a trip with us into this gallery of the macabre, and allow our authors to transport you into realms fantastical and terrifying; stories of the bizarre and the surreal, from deities, demons, and dictators through to tales of the marginalised and of cursed media. All of these tales are transgressive, yes—they tell the stories of the outcasts, of characters rebelling against societal norms, of the taboo and the controversial—but suffice it to say that no two are alike.
Within these pages, you will find the following authors and their stories …
Back Home for a Bit, by Thomas Kodnar
The Gallery of Discarded Things, by Vince Darcangelo
The Puppy Farm, by Marc Joan
Replete After Death, by Kevin Brown
Cold Magic, by R.E. McAuliffe
Mara and the Volkhv, by Isaac Menuza
To Crave an Empty Chest, by Lyra Meurer
Wake Up, Miles, by Carla Eliot
Obsidian, by Angela Sylvaine

Fade to Black, by Ashley Stokes
Peer into the dark recesses of the minds of these talented storytellers, and enjoy the delectably dark and wickedly warped offerings to be found herein. This is not a horror story ... or is it?

From the Publisher
Bloodcurdling books, nightmarish novels, and terrifying tomes abound.
At NIGHT TERROR NOVELS, we aim to provide fresh horror content of all forms and flavours, to cater to every taste. Whether you seek tales of ghosts or ghouls, bloodsuckers or wolfmen; from Victorian haunts to hardcore splatterpunk, genre-defying transgressive fiction and everything else you can imagine in between. We strive to run the gamut of all that is mysterious and macabre through both our original articles and our own publications. Currently, we are aiming to offer you (somewhat) informative and (wholly) subjective reviews of films and novels within the horror genre (and indeed beyond it), in addition to the odd ghoulish list feature, indie author spotlights, and a variety of original flash fiction pieces. We often have open calls for submissions to our various anthologies, and will be opening up for submissions of longer projects in the very near future, so keep an eye, or two, or three, glued to our site.
We do hope you’ll visit us, and perhaps stay for a spell …
About the Founder
JOSHUA KEOWN lives on the outskirts of the North York Moors with his feral little hound of hell, Lola. Despite his proximity to Whitby and a lifetime aversion to being out in the sun, he would like it to be known that he is definitely not a vampire. Joshua has always been an avid enthusiast of the horror genre in all its forms, and he now writes ghastly, ghoulish stories of his own. His debut short story “Krodha” can be found in the Wild Violence anthology from Blood Rites Horror, his second short story “What Ye Sow” can be found in Issue #X of All World’s Wayfarer, and a third titled “Whisper, Whisper” appears in Issue #63 of Dark Dossier. Joshua is also the founder of Night Terror Novels and edited its debut anthology, Ceci n’est pas une histoire d’horreur (This is Not a Horror Story) in 2021. His debut novella, Maggot Brain, is coming soon, for which the full details can be found on the Night Terror Novels website.

About the authors

I was thoroughly entertained by the ambiguousness, the colorful characters, vivid descriptions and the otherworldliness that seep through the pages.
Despite the title of the book, these tales are, unmistakably, of the uncanny and the morbid kind.
