“Put simply, Slices is the best recent horror collection I’ve read from an author since Joe Hill’s 20th Century Ghosts. If you like horror, you should board this sharp train, and seek out his other works: Montoure is going to be going places, and soon.”
“Montoure has managed to bring together a great collection of varied stories that should appeal to a lot of different taste. Readers of traditional horror as well as dark fantasy fans will find a lot to like in Slices.”
“MIND-BLOWINGLY GOOD: The fantasy and horror elements feel familiar in the sense that a recurring nightmare or a story heard in childhood feels familiar. These tropes resonate powerfully with the emotional problems at the heart of each tale.”
An imagined disease spreads across a city. A fading horror movie star crafts his replacement. Two thieves wait for rescue at the end of the world. Human monsters are put to their final tests. Time stands still in fairy circles, loops in on itself for a runaway child, and can be rewritten in the pages of a book. Fifteen unforgettable stories to be read in the dark.
Stories include: Cold Season, One Last Sunset, Remake, Rest Areas, Daddy’s Girls, Life Story, Only Monsters, Lullaby for Two Voices, Orpheus, Watch the Coin, Lost Boy, Puppets, The Thirteenth Boy, and Counterclockwise

An unreliable narrator, MICHAEL MONTOURE grew up in a haunted house where he heard footsteps in empty hallways, saw a kettle knocked off a stove and halfway across a room by nothing at all, and watched UFOs burn in the sky out his back window. A fascination with monsters led him to pick up a copy of Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot at the age of seven, and no one thought to take it away from him.He often performs readings of his horror fiction and dark urban fantasy at coffee shops and conventions in and around Seattle. He lives alone by the edge of Echo Lake, Washington.
