Tales From the Vault, Volume One

Sinopsis

In 'Tales from the Vault', Scottish author Neil Colquhoun brings you a collection of 10 short stories that are linked by blood. In 'Access Denied' a man who is continually being targeted by a gang of local kids finally takes the law into his own hands with disastrous consequences. ‘Blind’ will make you look twice at some of the people in your neighbourhood, especially sweet little old ladies. ‘The Debt Collector’ is a dark tale in which one man realises that all debts have to be collected regardless of the consequences. A character in 'Angel’ could really be what he thinks he is, or be something else completely. ‘Machine’ is a science-fiction story about a computer that will change the world. In ‘Genesis’, two men, The Boss and Kid A, are searching for a famous character who has floated away in space. ‘The Muse’ is a tale about a writer who has lost his inspiration and is looking for something to kick-start his creative process again. ‘Patient Number Two (Coma)’ is about wishing to live longer, not wanting to die and the dangers of a heart transplant. 'Afraid of Sunlight' has a stranger and a man who has memories of a dark period in his life. 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' is a tale of love with no boundaries. Be prepared to listen to things a bit weird, sometimes horrific, a little strange... but all have the same hybrid horror/sci-fi/fantasy mix that Neil Colquhoun does best.

    This week, the ‘Tales From The Vault’ story is called 'The Muse' and was previously published by SNM Horror magazine in May 2010.  ‘The Muse’ is a tale about a writer who has lost his inspiration and is looking for something to kick-start his creative process again. And that story he is searching for becomes bigger than life itself… I must say thanks to the editors from SNM Horror who accepted this story and suggested the title be changed from the original, yet uninspiring ‘The Beach’ – it was a smart move!

    This episode of ‘Tales From The Vault’ is a short one but that doesn’t mean it’s any less packed with goodness.  No sir, what you have here ready for your ears is a little slice of thought-provoking weirdness where, once again, things may or may not be what they seem. So, I present to you, ‘Angel’, where the character could really be what he thinks he is, or be something else completely…

    For your listening pleasure, I present the third story in the ‘Tales From The Vault’ series.  ‘The Debt Collector’ is a dark tale in which one man realises that all debts have to be collected regardless of the consequences, and love is not always what it seems. Immerse yourself in a world where the dreams that you thought were fiction might very well turn out to have more than an element of truth about them…
