Little Black Spots

A collection of stories by


First he gave us Little Deaths: The Definitive Edition. Then he unleashed his unique brand of pain in The End in All Beginnings.

Now Bram Stoker Award-nominated John F.D. Taff - modern horror's King of Pain - returns with Little Black Spots. Fifteen stories of dark horror fiction gathered together for the first time, exposing the delicate blemishes and sinister blots that tarnish the human condition.

-- A man stumbles on a cult that glorifies spontaneous human combustion...
-- A disgraced nature photographer applies his skills for a vile outcome...
-- A darkened city parking structure becomes dangerously and malevolently alive...
-- An innocent Halloween costume has a husband seeing his wife in a disturbing new light...
-- A ruined man sees far too much of himself in his broken family...
-- A young boy finds a mysterious bottle of liquid containing a deadly secret...
-- And so much more.

Little Black Spots is a beacon shining its light into some of life's most shadowy corners, revealing the dark stains that spatter all mankind.

Praise for John F.D. Taff:

"Of the current breed of authors riding the wave of digital liberation, John Taff is a standout talent. Literary, affecting, chilling, and indicative of that old-school mentality meets new-school daring."
- Kealan Patrick Burke, Bram Stoker Award -winning author of The Turtle Boy, Kin and Jack & Jill

"John F. D. Taff has rapidly become one of my favorite writers in the horror genre. His horror is grounded in our day-to-day lives, in our families, our work, our most private thoughts. His stories vibrate with emotion and life and his prose is cathartic, deeply satisfying, like popping the bubbles in bubble wrap." - Ray Garton, Grand Master of Horror and author of Live Girls and Ravenous

Proudly presented by Grey Matter Press, the multiple Bram Stoker Award-nominated independent publisher.
