Double novelette Paranoia Tango by Ray Garton available now

SST Publishing have just announced the release of a new double novelette by Ray Garton (Live GirlsRavenous) entitled Paranoia Tango. The first story sees a sleepy town where strange children have begun going door to door, asking to be let inside people’s homes, often with harrowing consequences, while in the second a man’s pet iguana has grown to an enormous size and started to talk. Each story is described as creepy, weird and heavily character driven and the book has received praise from the likes of Richard Chizmar (A Long December) and Patrick Freivald (Jade Sky). SST publishing are taking pre-orders for the book in two hardback versions, the first being a signed and numbered edition and the second being a signed and lettered remarqued version. Both can be ordered on their website for delivery in July or August, here.
