Overview

A night guard brings an offering to the eternal denizens of a notorious prison.

In a young girl's room, the shiny people keep watch in the night.

A proud father beams as his son takes the stage for the performance of a lifetime.

The stories in this anthology are the glimpses of the dark places between the forest and a dream. They are the shadows seeking the last notes of a dying violin. They invite the reader into a world where a condemned man faces his fate over and over and over again. Coppice & Brake is an anthology of dark fiction, featuring tales from the borderlands of horror, speculative fiction, and the nightmare fears that linger even after you turn on the lights.

About the Author

As a military journalist, Rachel A. Brune wrote and photographed the Army and its soldiers for five years. When she moved on, she didn't quit writing stories with soldiers in them, just added werewolves, sorcerers, a couple evil mad scientists, and a Fae or two. Now a full-time author and writing coach living in California, Rachel enjoys poking around former military installations and listening for the ghosts of old soldiers ... or writing them into her latest short story. As the founder and chief editor of Crone Girls Press, her goal is to publish the best of dark speculative fiction and horror. In addition, she is a contributing editor to the Writerpunk Press anthology series, which benefits the PAWS no-kill animal shelter in Lynnwood, WA. She lives with her spouse, two daughters, one reticent cat, and two flatulent rescue dogs.
