M.V. Montgomery’s fourth collection of fiction, Beyond the Pale, has just been released by Winter Goose Publishing! Please see:
Fans of old Saturday afternoon creature features and Alfred Hitchcock mystery collections will welcome this fifteen-story collection from author M.V. Montgomery. These are tales of haunted Hollywood, from an ill-fated vampire documentary to the unfortunate case of a method actor who takes his latest monster assignment too seriously. And for those whose sense of humor may sometimes stretch beyond the pale, rest assured you will find many puns and pleasantries also, with plentiful zombies, witches, and other night creatures who prefer to bump against the funny bone.
“The greatest strength of M.V. Montgomery’s collection lies in his ability to seamlessly blend comedy and horror. The way he deconstructs film narrative and its influence on popular culture struck this actor-turned-writer at times as insightful, at others masterful. A well paced and enjoyable read.”

“M.V. Montgomery’s stories are alluring, and told with a fresh voice this industry needs.”
