  • Fauna & Incorcisms Bundle

Both of my 2021 short story collections in one handy bundle!

Fauna (Fly on the Wall Press) - Longlisted for the Edge Hill Short Story Prize, 2022

Some we love, some we hate, some we eat.

Some can time-travel through a telepathic equine network. Some collaborate in avian theft. Some are trained to build canine cyborgs, while others are nothing but a figment of a bloodthirsty imagination; a fake elephant in a virtual room.

Tales of animals in all the wrong places. Stories that seek the minds of our fellow-feeling beasts. Yarns as old as Dragon herself, and just as angry. Vegan noir.

12 stories, A5 format, cover art to die for.
RRP: £8.99
Special Bundle Price: £6!

"Fiercely original, these are stories that are at times disturbing, absurd and darkly comedic, and which refuse to conform to the constraints of time and space. A startling collection, that begs to be read aloud. Hartley is a brilliant storyteller, with the kind of imaginations that leaves you feeling a bit fearful for your own safety."
~ Lucie McKnight Hardy author of 'Water Shall Refuse Them' and 'Dead Relatives'

Incorcisms (Arachne Press)

Strange stories about strange things for strange people. Tales of possession and obsession. Of destruction and restoration. Of the demons we hold inside us, and those we leave behind in others.

An odd apocalypse freezes a supermarket on Mother’s Day, a vanished village holds an ancient curse, an abandoned ice cream van tears a street apart. Rival rainbow setters, the woman who sowed a crop of elephants in her garden, and what happens if you keep on turning the clocks back.

Perhaps you had a demon then lost it. Do you miss it?

Our time here is brief and so are these curious fables. But the smallest of splinters are the hardest to dig out. Come and be snagged. Come, be unsettled. To be strange is to be human.

16 stories, free demon included.
RRP: £8.99
Special Bundle Price: £6

"These sharply-written short stories are a spine-chilling delight: ingenious, unnerving, pitch-dark."
~ Naomi Booth, author of 'Sealed'
