Born in San Francisco, California and raised in Buffalo, New York, Marni Rae Scofidio has lived in Britain since 1991. Her stories have appeared in semi- and professional magazines and anthologies, some reprinted in Best New Horror and Year's Best Fantasy & Horror. One story was nominated for a British Fantasy Society Award for short fiction, and another won First Prize in the Roadworks Short Fiction competition.Scofidio's writing is inspired by, in no particular order, Edith Wharton, H.P. Lovecraft, Ambrose Bierce, Lanoe Falconer, Patricia Highsmith, Robert Aickman, Vera Caspary, Rachel Ingalls, Strunk & White, Peter H. Cannon, Chet Williamson, Austin Wright, Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Natalie Goldberg, and Ireland’s genius, the stained glass artist and pen & ink illustrator Harry Clarke.Scofidio lauds the ebook revolution, as evidenced here on Smashwords, giving a new-found freedom to writers whose work steps outside the bounds of traditionally-published fiction, allowing for the author to choose the book length and style most suited to her temperament and interests. Also by self-publishing her work as ebooks, Scofidio is doing her bit for the planet.Thank you for taking the time to read this and if you download Marni Scofidio's work, we hope you enjoy it!

Not really ghost stories but definitely odd!!!

I really enjoyed this book - 7 'proper' ghost stories that rolled back the years - and not a Vampire in sight! Well written and each story completely different. I particularly liked the last story - gave me the shivers. Can't believe it's a free download. Brrrr!

Nice to find some ghost stories written for adults... the last story was my favourite!

Some stories were good, others weren't. I especially disliked the last story. Didn't make much sense.

I really enjoyed this collection. If your bag is well-crafted, intelligent ghost stories with a twist - these run the gamut from horror to humour and back again - I think you'll like Sometimes Dead as much as I did.
