DarkWinter Press is thrilled to announce our first release of 2024: Christopher Butt's debut short story collection In the Lair of the Kraken, now available on Amazon in both paperback and e-book for Kindle This collection of 18 stories is sure to thrill you and make you think. Do we have a favourite? They're all terrific, but The Greeter, a story about a lonely artificial lifeform, is especially close to our hearts.
What lies in the Lair of the Kraken? Darkness. The kind that fills our hearts, that we embrace, run from, challenge, triumph over, or surrender to. The kind that leads to tragedy, loneliness, bad decisions, narcissism, and good intentions.
Christopher Butt’s debut collection of nineteen stories delves into this madness and reveals monsters, both human and not, and cautions us to remember that when you gaze into the lair, the Kraken’s all-seeing eye stares back.
