[RELEASES] Relics: A Decade Under the Influence – by Aiden Merchant

RELICS: A DECADE UNDER THE INFLUENCE is coming Friday, November the 4th. This compendium collects most of the stories from the now-out-of-print collections DEAD AS SOON AS BORN and KILL FOR THEM written as Aiden Merchant, as well as several singles and anthology appearances. There is also an interview and essay included. This is a 600+ page selection for fans of my older work or those that may have missed these stories in their original publications.

The e-book edition of this compendium will be available via Amazon wide distribution come November 4th, 2022. The paperback will follow in 2023 for collectors. Read on for further detail, including the Table of Contents:

This selection is a celebration of my first ten years writing and publishing fiction as an adult, as well as my earliest days using the pseudonym of Aiden Merchant. It shows a lot of change and covers a variety of genres. Many of these stories have been well reviewed and loved for years.

See the beginning brought back to light.

RELICS will also be available via Kindle Unlimited, free to members!

Aiden Merchant is the author more than forty stories, including those found within SICKNESS IS IN SEASON, HORRIFIC HOLIDAYS, and DOCUMENTING DREADFUL EXISTENCES. He is also the author of the crime-fic novella CROSSING RED, and the lead editor and publisher of BLACKBERRY BLOOD (an anthology edited alongside Julia C. Lewis), MILK TEETH (a novella by Andrew Post), and RISE ABOVE (a community sampler). His alter ego, Wesley Winters, leans more toward the extreme and absurd. His debut horror series is appropriately titled FUCKED, and will debut in 2023 with ARTIFACT OF THE EYE and later FEED THE SKY.
