Itching for some new short fiction? Surprise! My new book, Departures, is out now! This new collection features ten strange stories, seven of which have never been previously published.
A new homeowner finds a large, inexplicable egg behind a door...
A traveler seeks a bizarre creature from folklore...
An abused spouse takes matters into their own hands...
A stranger tempts passersby with a mystery in the trunk of his car...
A man discovers a cemetery walled off from the rest of town...
A family finds out what the vacation of a lifetime really entails...
And a sleep aid wakes up.
These are just some of the strange tales within, as Scott Cole returns with a new collection featuring his unique brand of unusual horror stories.
Still on the fence? Check out this blurb that just arrived:
“No other living author writes the uncanny and the weird as compellingly as Scott Cole. His new collection, Departures, is a deftly written tightrope act balancing between moments of quiet gentleness and the chillingly absurd.”
— Eric LaRocca, author of Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke and Other Misfortunes

Good news for book collectors - My novella Crazytimes has received the limited edition hardcover treatment from Thunderstorm Books. I was thrilled to not only provide the words, but also create the cover art and lay out the interior as well.
Part of their Black Voltage Private Reserve line, this version of the book is limited to just 36 copies, all signed and numbered, most of which have already gone out to subscribers.
If you’re interested in one of the last few available copies, they can be purchased directly from Thunderstorm Books right here.
You wake up Monday morning and everyone is crazy. Everyone was already crazy, though, right? But somehow things are worse today. People are angry, throwing chairs out of office windows, eating rocks, violently scratching their necks, and running naked through the streets. They’re killing each other for no reason and laughing through the carnage. The whole city is like this. And meteors are falling from the hazy skies above. How are you going to survive? Do you even want to? This isn’t just another manic Monday. This is Crazytimes.
