For Individual Stories ...

AMELINE

Something is sapping the strength of the normally robust dancers of the Moulin Rouge. Author Sam Stone writes: 'A tale inspired by a visit to Montmartre in Paris combined with an investigation by my favourite vampire Lucy Collins (aka Lucrezia Borgia).' Warning: This audio download contains explicit scenes and language. PRICE £1.24

FOOL'S GOLD
A four hundred year old vampire investigates the Ripper murders in Whitechapel. Author Sam Stone writes: 'I've always been fascinated with Jack the Ripper and wanted to explore the legends, adding my own fantasy twist to the proceedings. This story won the British Fantasy Award for Best Short Story of 2010.' Warning: This audio download contains explicit scenes and language. PRICE £1.24

LEAD POISONING
A beautiful starlet dies mysteriously of lead poisoning; can the vampire Lucrezia solve the crime before anyone else dies? Author Sam Stone writes: 'Gangsters and Hollywood movie stars are a potent mix and gave me the ingredients to create a good old fashioned mystery. I was asked to write a crime story ... but no-one said I couldn't have my vampire as the investigator.' Warning: This audio download contains explicit scenes and language. PRICE £1.84

ZOMBIES IN NEW YORK
An outbreak of zombies in New York turns club owner Rocco's life upside down. Author Sam Stone writes: 'After visiting New York in May 2010, I felt it was the perfect place upon which to inflict a zombie apocalypse.' Warning: This audio download contains explicit scenes and language. PRICE £1.84

TAR
The discovery of wolf remains in the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles is the trigger for a fanatical cult to try and reincarnate their werewolf god. Author Sam Stone writes: 'I always wondered what would happen if we could revive the ancient remains and fossils we find, and a visit to La Brea brought this story to mind after seeing all the wolf skulls on display there.' Warning: This audio download contains explicit scenes and language. PRICE £1.24

RED
They say that opposites attract, but can the werewolf, Red, really give the vampire, Lucrezia, the security she thinks she needs? Author Sam Stone writes: 'A sexy story in which I was exploring the idea of obsession and the levels of degradation to which unhealthy emotion can lead.' Warning: This audio download contains explicit scenes and language. PRICE £1.84

ANGELS LOVE VAMPIRES
Teaching an angel all about love seems a good idea until Lucrezia finds herself the object of too much desire. Author Sam Stone writes: 'The title came to me first: angels and vampires - now there's a mix you just wouldn't expect.' Warning: This audio download contains explicit scenes and language. PRICE £1.24

And from the Other Bloody Jottings ...

CLOWN ADDICT
Gay civil servant, Dale, loves clowns but his dalliances result in a string of strangely humorous deaths. Author Sam Stone writes: 'As a fan of horror movies I was drawn to the sinister humour of the Doctor Phibes films and wanted to write my own homage to those wonderfully gruesome tales. After a visit to an American Circus I had all the inspiration I needed.' Warning: This audio download contains explicit scenes and language.  PRICE £1.24

IMMORTAL MONSTER
A struggling writer finds the elusive overnight success he has always dreamed of, but it comes at a terrible price. Author Sam Stone writes: 'I was asked to write a ghost story but realised that I wanted to avoid clich├ęs. This story has deliberate ambiguity, is it about a ghost or not? You decide.' Warning: This audio download contains explicit scenes and language. PRICE £1.84

CHILLERS AND BREATHERS
Detectives Charlie and Meg live on opposite sides of life and death. Meg is a chiller - a ghost - and Charlie is a breather - alive - and they work together investigating crimes. In this story they investigate a drug which can perhaps bridge the gap between the two worlds. Author Sam Stone writes: 'I was wondering if the dead and the living could co-exist and how would they get along, and this story was the result. I like the ideas and the world and may revisit it again soon.' Warning: This audio download contains explicit scenes and language. PRICE £1.84

BLOOD LOSS
A mortician discovers that there really is life after death when a beautiful woman he autopsied turns up in the bar later that night. Author Sam Stone writes: 'I was exploring what would happen if, even after death, we could still see and feel. It was a horrible, but fascinating, concept.' Warning: This audio download contains explicit scenes and language. PRICE £1.24

SIREN'S SONG
While investigating a rash of unexplainable deaths in the area, a reporter becomes fixated on a mysterious woman who moves into his apartment block. Author Sam Stone writes: 'The concept of the Siren has beguiled sailors for years and I wanted to explore what happens when you finally come face to face with this most seductive of mythological creatures, and what lies behind their haunting song.' Warning: This audio download contains explicit scenes and language.  PRICE £1.84

THE TOYMAKER'S HOUSE
While working on a gory horror movie, assistant director Caron becomes suspicious of the special effects created by Mark - an odd and solitary expert who sees his creations as art. Caron's investigations lead her to some horrific answers. Author Sam Stone writes: 'Psychological horror is the worst kind of horror and this story was born from a vivid and gory nightmare. I tried to recapture in words, the horror and terror of my dream, in an intense and unsettling piece.' Warning: This audio download contains explicit scenes and language. PRICE £1.84

Bonus Story ...

WALKING THE DEAD
When the dead begin to rise, the world is plunged into panic. It takes the common sense of a twelve year old boy to figure out how to handle the zombie menace. Author Sam Stone writes: 'Zombies appear everywhere in literature but I wanted to write a story that was atypical. The idea came from the title, a mis-remembering of the HBO television series 'The Walking Dead' crossed with another BBC crime show called 'Waking the Dead'.' Warning: This audio download contains explicit scenes and language. PRICE £1.24
