So far we’ve had an Italian author with an American translator from Chicago, a New Hampshire writer with a story set in California, and today we bring you a Scottish author writing a tale set during the Siege of Leningrad.
I love a good chill. I’ve been told that my stories have kept people up at night, made them wince, look over their shoulders, and creeped them out completely. To me, as a writer, that means I’ve done my job and done it well.
Stories We Tell After Midnight 2, our third full-length anthology, is the first time I’ve accepted a work in translation. Working with J. Weintraub to accept and publish Nicola Lombardi’s short story was a pleasure I hope to repeat in the future! In the meantime, read on to learn more.

As our anthology begins, an old grandmother tells her grandchildren yet another bedtime story. And then another. And then another… and another.. and… “Bedtime Tales” by Nicola Lombardi, translated by J. Weintraub, is a short, creepy tale to set the stage for our readers. Q (Crone Girls Press): What do you write? How long haveContinue reading “Meet the Author: Nicola Lombardi”
By the end of this week, CGP will have published its third full-length anthology of horror and dark fiction, Stories We Tell After Midnight, Volume 2. The twenty-four stories in this anthology invite the reader into a world where a grandmother never stops telling her stories, where the winter ice and snow of a Leningrad under siege reveal the depths of human desperation, and where a grandfather follows the voice of his dead grandson into the Whisper Woods.
Stories We Tell After Midnight 2, our third full-length anthology of horror and dark fiction, will be available October 1, 2020. Read on to learn more!
There’s this manic rollercoaster that comes with writing where you’re up and up, then suddenly crashing towards the ground, only to bank to the left and go back up. It gives you emotional and creative whiplash…
I don’t think writers should focus so much on being careful. I think writers should try to be very brave.
“…you can only appreciate the light once you’ve experienced the darkness. I have worked with enough people to have no illusions about what kinds of darkness exist.”
Our authors have tales that will terrify you–but many of these stories will also give you something to think about, may even give you hope. Avra Margariti’s “All the Dead Girls, Singing” makes me cry each time I read it, not only with sadness, but because of the notes of love that transcend death. Jeff Dosser’s “Ghost Story” offers an image of redemption through the power of stories. Voss Foster’s “Eccentric on the Grandest of Scales” is one of the most optimistic dark fiction stories I’ve ever read. And “Cold Dread and Hot Slices” by Spencer Koelle is a portrait of the people who are currently keeping our country together by working the sorts of jobs that ensure people can eat and buy groceries and live. These are just some of the 23 stories you’ll find in the table of contents, stories that I am very proud to include in the anthology and share with the world. I can’t wait for you to read it!
