Things I Didn’t Know My Father Knew: The Best Short Stories of Peter Crowther

We’re pleased to announce we’ll be publishing Things I Didn’t Know My Father Knew: The Best Short Stories of Peter Crowther later this year, and with the low print run and Pete’s devoted following, we don’t expect this one to last long at all!

About the Book:
The newest collection by acclaimed British horror master Peter Crowther, these stories are the very best of his incredible short works of horror and suspense:

  • Things I Didn’t Know My Father Knew: An unusual visitor rolls into town one day under cover of a thick fog . . . just to touch base with someone he maybe once knew.
  • All We Know of Heaven: A small boy finds the answer to his and his father’s dilemma in the legend of King Arthur and his mystical sword, Excalibur.
  • Tomorrow Eyes: A Runyonesque gambler discovers the strangest set of dice you ever saw being rolled on a cloth.
  • Some Burial Place, Vast and Dry: The lonely survivor of a long-ago space mission receives a visit from a hauntingly familiar UFO.
  • The Musician of Bremen, GA: Cal Williston, who can play the best version of ‘Moonlight In Vermont’ since Chet Baker teamed up with Gerry Mulligan.
  • Boxing Day: A small-town crook about to fall under the spell of London rediscovers his wife.
  • Keepsakes: PI. Koko Tate pays his mom a visit on Mother’s Day.
  • Too Short A Death: A modern-day poet meets the long-deceased Weldon Kees’s greatest literary creation.
  • Eater: The cops at an off-the-beaten-track late-night precinct house have got more than they bargained for in one of the cells.
  • Sitting Pretty: An armchair fashioned out of the wood from the original cross provides a comfort of sorts down the ages.
  • Dark Times: Two old men tamper with the dark arts and open a gateway that threatens the destructions of the world.
  • Jewels in the Dust: A couple jaded with their life together are visited by their collective histories.
  • And, in Songs of Leaving, the imminent impact of a county-sized piece of space debris brings to the remnants of humanity a multitude of old friends to witness the fall of mankind.
