THE FIRST

A collection of 14 dark fantasy, dystopian, post-apocalyptic, and science fiction stories from award-winning author Scott Nicholson. These stories visit undiscovered countries and shadowy avenues of the heart, lands and times where night never ends and matter doesn’t matter. Features the six-story Aeropagan cycle where time is literally money. Includes an afterword and Nicholson’s first-ever published story.

Nicholson, a 1999 Writers of the Future award winner, has published 12 novels, including the bestselling Kindle thrillers DISINTEGRATION and the RED CHURCH and the comic books Grave Conditions, Dirt, and Little Shivers. Look for his other collections ASHES, FLOWERS, CURTAINS: MYSTERY STORIES, and MURDERMOUTH: ZOMBIE BITS. If you like science fiction with a pulp horror feel, check out FOREVER NEVER ENDS.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I generally don’t give short stories five stars. They always leave me wanting. But most of the stories in this collection are brilliant. And many are very disturbing. Scott Nicholson has quite an imagination! A great read.

*******

Scott Nicholson strikes again! This one is really fun because of the wide variety of stories included here. Normally, I can’t put down a Nicholson novel until I’m done, which is why I like getting a collection of his short stories (I don’t stay up all night and show up sleepy at work). Plus, we get to see some of the more twisted corners of his imagination here. I strongly recommend this and other books by this writer for any horror fan.

About The Author


Author Scott Nicholson has written 12 thrillers, 60 short stories, four comics series, and six screenplays. He’s also a freelance editor and journalist. He lives in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, where he tends an organic garden, successfully eludes stalkers, and generally lives the dream. He’s online at www.hauntedcomputer.com.

Nicholson has written hundreds of songs and poems and was a musician in a former life. a newspaper reporter, he’s won three North Carolina Press Association awards. He’s had the usual collection of odd jobs: dishwasher, carpenter, painter, paranormal investigator, baseball card dealer, and radio announcer. Now he haphazardly trades words for magic beans and uses “haphazardly” as often as possible while decrying the overuse of adverbs.

Entering the digital era with a vengeance, Nicholson is releasing original titles and collections while conspiring to release interactive books in the near future, building audio files, video, and collaborative fiction projects. He operates Haunted Computer Books and Indie Books Blog to bring a variety of voices to readers.

Nicholson won the grand prize in the international Writers of the Future contest in 1999. That same year, he was first runner-up for the Darrell Award. He studied Creative Writing at Appalachian State University and UNC-Chapel Hill. He has been an officer of Mystery Writers of America and Horror Writers Association and is a member of International Thriller Writers and inaugural member of the Killer Thriller Band.

Unfortunately, they never taught him to write: he had 105 rejections before his first story sale and over 400 before he sold a novel. He hasn’t learned much from his mistakes but thinks he’ll probably improve with practice. If nothing else, he’s become a better liar.

His website www.hauntedcomputer.com features author interviews, articles, and fiction excerpts. Bad relationship advice. Humor. Gardening tips. Subliminal tricks to sell his books. That sort of thing.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Scott Nicholson and ENT appreciate it.
