Tag Archive: Short Story


My latest short story, Locked In, is available now in an anthology titled, Through Death’s Door from Monnath Books.

Since humankind began, the certainty of death has made us ponder on the uncertainty of the unknown—the afterlife, spirituality, reincarnation and religion—all in an effort to explore and try to explain our reason for existing, living and dying. Within this anthology, we have twenty-six diverse stories from authors exploring the concept of death in all its intricacies, possibilities and sensitivities. We invite you to take a walk Through Death’s Door where you can explore haunted places, meet with murderers, and even revisit the legend that was David Bowie himself.

Okay, I can officially announce the release of my second book.

Ghost Stories: Tales From The Dead Of Night © Antony N Britt 2017

Ghost Stories: Tales From The Dead Of Night is a collection of 20 short stories which might have you afraid to turn out the light. But don’t take my word for it. Read the blurb.

Meet …

Mark, who loves Alison, but must first get past her dead father.

Jessie and Tommy. In fear of what’s in the attic.

Colin. As a medium, he’s used to ghosts. It’s the living he needs to be scared of.

Alec, haunted by a tragedy which took place forty years ago. Now the past has caught up.

Karen and Matthew, locked in a manor house with the spirit of its sadistic former owner.

Irene. All she wanted was attention; now she wishes it would go away.

And meet Cara. Disturbed by the presence in her bedsit, and a bloodstain which keeps returning.

You don’t need to sleep to have nightmares.

No Sunday Roast this week. Spent yesterday at Foyles in London, pitching my novel, Finding Jessica to an agent from Curtis Brown as part of their Discovery Day.

However, I need to do an update because I have further publications to add to those already available.

First, online. My short story, Fetch, is available at Darker Times Fiction and you can view by following the link at the foot of this post.

First off, there won’t be a Sunday Roast tomorrow and probably not next week, either. I need to take a step back and cut a few things at the minute … and the Roast is one. I shall return, though.

Secondly, I have another short story online. Sweet Revenge got an honourable mention in the Darker Times Monthly Competition for September and is available on the Darker Times Fiction website by clicking the link.

I mentioned recently that I’d had two stories achieve some success in Darker Times Fiction. Both are still available to read via the Darker Times website with the links on the Published Online page, but they are now also in print.

The two stories: The Monster Who Lives in the Cellar and Trick or Treat are published in Darker Times Anthology Volume Three.

News of a Major Competition Win.

Bit late in telling you all about this one but my latest writing success has now been published in the Writers’ News section of the current edition (Feb 2013) of Writing Magazine.

I was delighted to receive an email to say I’d won the Darker Times Fiction, monthly competition for October. I entered two pieces and my story – The Original Mandlebury Ghost Hunt won first prize and the other, Table Decoration, was one of the runners-up.

Both will be in a soon to be released anthology and are available now online on the Darker Times Fiction website.

Darker Times Fiction is run by Jessica Grace Coleman, an author based in Staffordshire, England. It’s excellent. Go and check it out and enter the monthly competition, yourself.

Note … Table Decoration is of a very dark nature. Be warned.
