Eight Days of Madness - now available as a free e-book!

Chris Allinotte, host and editor of the marvellously dark Madness In March over at The Leaky Pencil has gone one step further. The seven stories plus the excellent bonus tale by Mr Allinotte himself have been gathered into an e-book at Smashwords, retitled Eight Days of Madness.

You can download the e-book in all formats - and best of all, it's free:


  • Paranoia by Laurita Miller
  • Blister Pack by Richard Godwin
  • Mad Dash by Angel Zapata
  • The Giver, The Taker, The Monster by Benjamin Sobieck
  • Heart Shaped Hammer by Sean Patrick Reardon
  • Still Alive by Erin Cole
  • Living In A Box by Lily Childs
  • The Dollmaker and the Rat by Chris Allinotte



  1. That was so way cool of Chris to do this and it came out really good. Going to print out the PDF and download to my nook.

  2. Thanks for the mention Lily. I was happy to do the book for you and the others. It's no fat royalty cheque - but at 67 downloads and climbing, it's getting your names and, more important, your wonderful stories to a wider audience.


Lily Childs is a writer of horror, esoteric, mystery and chilling fiction.

If you see her dancing outside in a thunder storm - don't try to bring her in. She's safe.
