Checkmate: Tales of Speculative Fiction

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Your guidebook to the shadows and monsters of modern fairy tales.

In the title story, 'Checkmate', a devilish game of chess goes apocalyptically wrong. Elsewhere, 'Bleed Them Dry' puts a new spin on the contemporary corporate vampire, an aristocratic corpse tells his side of the story in 'The Dead Do Listen', and a little girl is fascinated with an antique that hides a dark world in 'The Mirror Phase'. 

Described as “a wonderful collection of tales of subtle urban fantasy with a delicious gothic flavour", Checkmate wants to thrill you, comfort you, and creep you out, all in one go.

If you enjoy the dark fairytales of Neil Gaiman, then you'll love the weird tales of Checkmate!
