A collection of stories for Halloween

Short Horror Fiction for free

Short Fictions & Curiosities are monthly offerings: a sample of short stories, wonders, terrors, and experiments in speculative fiction: small slivers of dark fiction and horror from the vault for your enjoyment. They are free to read with the hopes that you’ll share with others on the social media platform of your choosing. Each story has been penned and designed by Kira Butler, and by their nature are ephemeral artifacts — they last for a time, then vanish. This series concludes on October 31, 2016, but we’re going out with a bang in the Halloween spirit.

About Kira Butler, horror writer

Raised on Stephen King and Anne Rice, Kira’s interest in the macabre bloomed early on. Her influences today hearken back to her first forays into dark urban fantasy and horror, paranormal romance as well as paranormal studies. She is a taphophile, an appreciator of neoclassical sculpture, an aficionado of the occult, and a lover of all things Victorian. You can often find her haunting her favourite local coffee shops, basking in the warm glow of her MacBook Pro or with her nose shoved into a book and sucking down yet another cup of tea.
