Contest Update & A Free Story From Jeff Strand

Last Wednesday we brought you a contest and offered up a free book.  The winner of that contest was none other than the illustrious Gef Fox.  Gef, we’ll be in touch to get your info!

Today we also have very big news for all of our lovely Dreadful Tales readers- Jeff Strand’s short story, Specimen 313, is currently a free digital pre-order over at Amazon.  The story will be part of The Monster’s Corner Anthology which features some very heavy hitters. Here is a brief synopsis of the story:

SPECIMEN 313 is the story of a meat-eating plant named Max, surviving in the greenhouse with his mad doctor keeper when he gets a new female neighbor.

We, at Dreadful Tales, strongly encourage everyone to put their order in for Specimen 313 and pick up a copy of The Monster’s Corner.

About Pat Dreadful

Father of three. Impregnator of one. Pat lives in the backwoods of Pennsylvania where he splits his time between moonshining and moonlighting. He used to be the sole proprietor of a funky little site called Grade Z Horror but jumped at the chance to work with Meli and Colum. He was raised on King and Crichton but quickly found true salvation in the works of Ketchum and Laymon. When not selling plasma to afford those highly sought after Jeff Strand limited editions, Pat can be found sitting on his back porch with a pipe full of Perique and the sounds of summer coming through a beat up transistor radio. Simply put, he is a true ramblin’ boy of pleasure. The books that have shaped Pat’s warped lil’ ol’ mind have included Dweller by Jeff Strand, It by Stephen King, Boy’s Life by Robert McCammon, The Traveling Vampire Show by Richard Laymon and The Girl Next Door by Jack Ketchum. Pat is always on the lookout for a good coming-of-age yarn so shoot your suggestions to You can also follow his unsavory exploits over at
