Hard to believe that we had not read Kaaron Warren prior to meeting her at the World Fantasy Convention 2018 in Baltimore, where she was a guest of honor. We fixed the “haven’t read Kaaron Warren” problem very quickly, and now, are supremely happy to announce we’ll be publishing her haunting atmospheric novella, Into Bones Like Oil, under our Meerkat Shorts imprint!
About Into Bones Like Oil
People come to The Angelsea, a rooming house near the beach, for many reasons. Some come to get some sleep, because here, you sleep like the dead.
Dora arrives seeking solitude and escape from reality. Instead, she finds a place haunted by the drowned and desperate, who speak through the sleeping inhabitants. She fears sleep herself, terrified that the ghosts of her daughters will tell her “it’s all your fault we’re dead.” At the same time, she’d give anything to hear them one more time.
