Crow Shine

(2016)
A collection of stories by

 

"Alan Baxter is an accomplished storyteller who ably evokes magic and menace...Crow Shine has a mean bite,"
Laird Barron


The dark fantasy collection features 19 stories, including the Australian Shadows Award-winning "Shadows of the Lonely Dead"; and original title story "Crow Shine" in addition to two other never before published stories.

"Alan Baxter is an accomplished storyteller who ably evokes magic and menace. Whether it's stories of ghost-liquor and soul-draining blues, night club magicians, sinister western pastoral landscapes, or a suburban suicide - Crow Shine has a mean bite." - Laird Barron, author of Swift to Chase.

"Crow Shine, by Alan Baxter, is a sweeping collection of horror and dark fantasy stories, packed with misfits and devils, repentant fathers and clockwork miracles. Throughout it all, Baxter keeps his focus on the universal problems of the human experience: the search for understanding, for justice, and for love. It's an outstanding book." - Nathan Ballingrud, author of North American Lake Monsters.

"Alan Baxter's fiction is dark, disturbing, hard-hitting and heart-breakingly honest. He reflects on worlds known and unknown with compassion, and demonstrates an almost second-sight into human behaviour." - Kaaron Warren, Shirley Jackson Award-winner and author of The Grief Hole.

"Buy your tickets, step up, and enter the world of Alan Baxter's debut collection, Crow Shine. Here fates are brutal, justice is swift and merciless, yet even the most ruthless characters are sometimes - just sometimes - strangely touching. Crow Shine will terrify, surprise, and stun you." - Angela Slatter, World Fantasy and British Fantasy Award winning author.
