About Tim Jeffreys
"At his best Jeffreys writes memorable, perturbating prose with an overwhelming sense of menace. The stories stay with the reader, touching something in the psyche that is both troubling and intriguing." Bristol Review of Books.
"I've never before encountered a new author (new to me, in any event) whose work...grabs me so significantly from page one. When on his top form as demonstrated here...(Tim Jeffreys)...has the precious ability to grapple, I sincerely believe, with a writing gear in the horror or weird fiction genre beyond the reach of most."

Titles By Tim Jeffreys
Up in the attic, a bedtime story outlives its storyteller.
A city boy visits his country cousins and stumbles on a terrifying family secret.
From a film set in the Arizona desert, to an overgrown rambling old house in the Florida swamps, to the dusty streets of a small Mexican town, the stories in this volume plunge the reader into the shadows of a world almost forgotten by modern fables of cold science and bright sunlight. They are the brushed over voices who call a warning to those who would comfort themselves in the thought that monsters aren’t real, and those things can’t happen here. Stories We Tell After Midnight Volume 2 offers up tales of revenge, of hunger, and of the horror that stalks you just beyond the glow of your cell phone light, but only to those who dare turn the page…

Dark Hall Press is proud to present our Cosmic Horror Anthology, ten tales of nameless terror from some of the most exciting voices in the field.
It’s all here, from stories of subtle, invasive menace to tales of full-fledged cyclopean horrors; from alien worlds to the yawning holes in perception where strange forces lurk; where nature takes on a terrifying sentience and one is not safe even in dreams.
We at Dark Hall invite you to join us in celebration of the modern weird tale, to cast off the veil of reason and see the universe for what it truly is – frightening and uncontrollable.
The Outliers are authors from diverse backgrounds at various stages in their careers and each with a distinct voice. The Outliers of Speculative Fiction once again offers a cross-section of authors and stories from beyond the current mainstream of genre fiction. Some are throwbacks to earlier eras, some are unique new visions, and some are departures from the authors' own styles and subjects.
Here are small stories of personal, if strange, relationships with outsized impact. Here too are stories that offer a window to the fall of civilizations, worlds, and entire races, brought to our level through their characters. These tales include fantastic scenarios overshadowed by human situations and actions that are all too real, and other nightmare visions given humor by the simple addition of humanity. These are the Outliers of Speculative Fiction for 2016.
Beasties." Find something unsettling at every turn, from rising
primordical monsters and gods to murderous supernatural predators and
vengeful soul-hungry demons.

families, and unhinged sorcerers.
An international group of new and established contributors to "Strange
Beasties" makes this an original and varied collection that is sure to
please fans of science fiction/fantasy, humor, and horror. Writers
include Bruce Arthurs, John Sunseri, Philip John Schweitzer, Tim
