New Online Fiction Recommendations: Jodi MacArthur and Chris Allinotte

There’s a slew of awesome new fiction available from two very talented writers, Jodi MacArthur and Chris Allinotte. Don’t ask me how they pump out this much quality stuff. My guess is these two maniacs never sleep. Anyway, I wanna make sure you haven’t missed any of it. So get to clicking the links.

This Texas-dwelling chick is all teeth and nails. She knows the flavor of your skin. Her words have sharp points and she’s not afraid to stab you in the face with them. I’m still wiping away blood and stitching myself up.

I’ve been reading Jodi’s work for over three years and she never disappoints. She’s able to transport the reader to whatever insane world she’s living in at the time. Mark my words, one day she’s gonna be sipping a hot cup of blood beside Stephen King himself. Besides the links below, you can find more of her work here at the cauldron of evil she calls a blog.

MANTRA at All Due Respect, Issue #16

BLACK, WHITE AND RED ALL OVER at In Between Altered States

FREE MERCURY at Beat to a Pulp

Chipping away at the frozen tundra in Toronto, Chris slowly inserts splinters of ice under the reader’s fingernails. I, for one, am grateful for the pain. In addition to penning stories about hellfire pie and sewer-dwelling, man-eating creatures, he is also editor of the anthology, Eight Days of Madness. It happens to be a free anthology you can download here.

You can read all about the Canadian creator himself and his work at his blog, The Leaky Pencil. I’ve often wondered exactly what was seeping out of that Leaky Pencil of his. Now I know. It’s blood.

  1. Angel - wow - thanks so much for the mention and the links! I'm thrilled that you read and enjoyed these.

    You did forget to mention one thing though... Eight Days of Horror features a Killer Angel Zapata original: Mad Dash.

    I'm going to go check out Jodi's stories right now - I DID miss a couple.

    Thanks again!

  2. Tell me about it. Can't keep up with many writers on the net, I just pretend like I do. Chris and Jodi are definitely in my top list of writers I follow devotedly.

    I think you can add your name to the online fiction list too (I haven't read "Mad Dash") and you also have great poems and short fiction at Cavalcade of Stars and "Salt of the Earth" at MicroHorror (that's you right?) I'm hoping my entry will be good enough to get published.

    I missed Jodi's story at IBAS, so going to check it out now.

  3. Two of my faves. If you want a good, creepy, bizarre read, Jodi is your girl. And Chris, being a fellow Canadian, has a cool way with his dark works.

    You have your ear to the ground when it comes to good fiction, Angel. Good recommendations.

  4. Aw, man, just somehow deleted my novella comment. Basically what I said was:

    Horror Dude, thank you so much for the words and link ups. It means alot coming from you. ;-) I haven't had time to blog on the nun gangster story- so you're a sharp guy to catch that. Can I borrow your knife sharpening steel?

    I'm also happy you posted all Chris's recent stories because I thought i had hit them all, but apparently not. An absolute gem!
