In a career that spans almost 40 years, David A. Sutton has won a World Fantasy Award, an International Horror Guild Award, and the British Fantasy Awards 12 times. Clinically Dead is David A. Sutton's long-awaited debut collection and it contains previously published and unpublished stories dating from the early 1990s to 2005, including the masterly 30,000 word new novella - In The Land of The Rainbow Snake. Introduction from the multi-award winning Stephen Jones and an afterword by Joel Lane. Clinically Dead & Other Tales of the Supernateral deals with the walking dead, shape-shifters, precognition, dreams and spiritual journeys, subterranean creatures, possession, ancient survivals, and ghostly revenge. Culled from dark domains beyond the bosom of waking reality, these are ten weird tales of supernatural transformation, myth and obsession. Journey to an isolated island where ancient Etruscan rites are still practised to appease the inhabitant of a temple, and where the unwary tourist is ill advised to venture... Visit a hospital in which the living dead rise up... Is it the injections, the drugs, the fluids... or is it the trauma of intensive care that drives a mind to madness? Embark at your peril to Venice, city of black water, creepy imaginings and where ancient denizens lure their victims along the lost passageways of this sensuously eerie city. An expedition into the red heart of the Australian outback is perhaps all the escape needed for a grieving heart. But with terrible prophetic nightmares to contend with, the hallucinatory landscape of the desert and encounters with the Dreamtime conspire to make for a terrifying spiritual journey. Author David A. Sutton presents a macabre and gruesome selection of stories from magazines and anthologies published over the past fifteen years, and includes three previously unpublished stories, including his new novella.
