Mental Ward: Stories from the Asylum
Sanatorium, mental ward, psychiatric hospital – they’re all the same. Places where the infirm, the crazy, and the certifiable go for treatment…
Or what passes for ‘treatment’.
This is a collection of stories of bedlam taking place within the padded walls of an institution. Stories of experiments gone wrong, patients revolting
against the staff, or even the deranged doings of those charged with giving care.
They are sick, depraved, and atrocious – these are the type of stories that rarely reach the light of day.
Are you brave enough to crawl inside the minds of the twelve authors who wrote these tales… Or are you afraid you’ll be locked up for peeking?
Delphine Boswell, Alex Chase, Sean Conway, Megan Dorei, A.A. Garrison, Tom Howard, Russell Linton, Suzie Lockhart & Bruce Lockhard 2nd, Jennifer Loring, Sergio Palumbo, Joseph A. Pinto, and D.M. Smith
Gimme the goods, man!
Picking the Coffin Hop Prize: There will be one winner from each day’s comments who is welcome to take a look through the Sirens Call Publications catalog and choose whichever e-book they would like. I’ll be randomly picking from each day at the end of the hop. (one prize per person on this blog, but hit my other two or The Sirens Song, you might get lucky again!)

I must read! I love reading that type of stuff! 🙂
It’s a great collection! Some really twisted stuff in this one. 😉
They sound cool. Giving me an idea!
Follow the Amazon link, Juan, and you can read the 20% preview. Its a great set of tales!
Hmm? Sounds interesting. I love the cover. I wonder what’s behind that door…
I know what’s behind the door… Its one of many on an abandoned asylum about an hour, maybe less, from me. The more interesting question is what’s behind the cover? (small, shameless plus – but you have to admit, it was well delivered!) lol ;}
More books to read!
This one is a gem, Lori. We had a lot of fun picking through these stories, so much so that we ended up with a second set of stories related to asylums that will be featured tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
Mental Ward sounds cool!
Thanks, Jolie! Its a great anthology – and not just because its SCP’s, but because the stories are diverse and unique! 🙂
Sigh! My TBR pile is becoming a mountain!
LOL – Sorry… no, happy to hear that! My TBR pile is ever evolving – there will never be a bottom to the pile. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
Wow! I love insane asylum kind of stories, and that cover is creepy as hell! Well done!
Thank you for commenting on the cover! The stories are great (I happen to love this type of fiction myself), so I can’t help but love both our Mental ward anthologies! Both are collections of very unique and interesting stories and authors. Thanks for stopping by, Georgina!
