Toxic Reality now available!

Halloween doesn’t have to end! Author Katherine Tomlinson’s new fiction collection, Toxic Reality is now available in all formats on smashwords as well as in’s kindle store.

“From cyanide and cannibalism to thought-provoking and heartrending stories to Craig List-esque killers and their curious mates and just downright creepiness, if you weren't a fan of Katherine Tomlinson's writing before this collection, you will be very soon.”                        
 –Christopher Grant, Editor/Publisher of A Twist Of Noir

In Toxic Reality, Katherine Tomlinson proves that she’s an imaginative, masterful storyteller. She constructs realistic, likeable characters, drops them in desperate situations and watches them squirm. Her sharp sense of humor and gift for satisfying twist endings tie together this diverse and brilliant collection of crime tales.” – Chris Rhatigan, co-editor of the anthology Pulp Ink

Toxic Reality is the third collection of short fiction from Tomlinson, whose previous works include Just Another Day in Paradise, and L.A. Nocturne. Her work has been anthologized in Alt-Dead, Zombiefied, A Quiet Shelter There, and the upcoming Absolute Write speculative fiction collection.

A collection of 20 dark tales, Toxic Reality includes the Pushcart Prize nominee, “Water Sports” as well as stories that originally appeared in A Twist of Noir, Eaten Alive, Dark Valentine, and Clarity of Night.
