Overview

The sound of shuffling footsteps across the old cell floor...

A soft voice like a strange tune echoing along the empty corridors...

Dim lights in the windows of the abandoned asylum...

Discarded case files that flip open to reveal the dreams of broken minds...

Welcome to a place where the boundaries of fact and fiction meet.

Acclaimed author Gary McMahon raids the archives of a notorious derelict mental asylum called the Daleside Institute to bring you stories of madness, horror and emotional trauma. In locations as diverse as suburban Germany, the London Underground, an Italian seaside resort and the inhospitable polar icecap, you will meet damaged people with broken lives. Here are terrifying accounts of love, hate, death and madness...

These are the Tales of the Weak and the Wounded

"If you love short stories, this is a must book for your collection. If you haven't read anything by Mr. McMahon this is a great place to start. One of the better collections of short stories I've read and I give it my highest recommendation, I will definitely be keeping my eyes out for more from Gary McMahon." - Famous Monsters of Filmland

"This is a great collection of stories and an excellent showcase for the highly talented Gary McMahon. There are enough images in here to haunt your dreams for months to come but there's also depth here, strong ideas and commentary. The best horror holds up a mirror to society, is grounded in reality and Tales of The Weak and The Wounded is an exemplar of this." - Dark Musings
