A collection of several of the published works of Alison Cybe, available now. You can view my page on Amazon.
When Roka joined the Realms of Valeron, he was a fledgling elven cleric with only a minor healing spell and a dingy brown robe to his name. But that was just fine, since it was the hottest fantasy MMORPG, with over a million players, and Roka could not resist the allure of this rich, bright fantasy world, eccentric NPCs, and ravenous monsters.
And best of all, he met his friends—a wild and eccentric band of misfits who would change his life forever!
Join Roka and his newfound guild as they face devastating Razor-Squirrels, confront the Labyrinths of Ancient Storylines, and rush to max level in order to take part in end-game content (while probably not reading any of the quest text as they go!). But the real treasure that they find isn’t the Bejewelled Anklets of Monster-Commanding or even the mythical Pointy Stick—it’s the friendship they make along the way.
Enter the Realms of Valeron, a tale of high humor and eager adventuring like nothing before!
“Y’know, if I was a sexy type of undead, like a vampire or something, I’m sure I’d have some kind of supernatural power to bring any guy I liked under my charismatic control. Best I can hope for is to decompose over someone’s shoes. How romantic.”
And you thought it was hard coming out as gay… Jay was a perfectly normal teenager, like any other awkward, antisocial, gay teenager. Until he was bitten by a mysterious zombie boy. Now, Jay has far more on his mind than he can handle. Not only is he struggling to keep his troubled family together and deal with his unfulfilled love for the hottest guy in school, he also needs to keep in check his urge to devour human flesh. All the while making sure his decomposition doesn’t show. As if he wasn’t already enough of an outsider…
“Possibly the most diverse collection I’ve ever read” – Wesley Thomas
“Terrifying and personal!” – Word of the Nerd
Twenty-two tales of horror and dark fantasy that will leave you huddled beneath the covers!
Originally published in 2014, Shush! – A Horror Anthology returns to print, now expanded with even more content and more tales to thrill and disturb by the pen of acclaimed horror writer Alison Cybe. Just tell yourself that it’s only a story…
Below are a range of the short story publications which have featured my work.
For the dark hours when you dare not close your eyes. Tales of horror to frighten and disturb. Join us as the sleepless hours tick past. Brace yourself… for The NoSleep Podcast. A multi-award winning anthology series of original horror stories, The NoSleep Podcast features a cast of talented voice actors, music and sound effects to enhance the frightening tales.
The horror community has thousands of LGBTQIA fans, so where are we in the stories? Traditionally, horror has included us or used us as part of the plot twist. Transgender individuals are vilified in stories like “Silence of the Lambs” and “Sleepaway Camp.” Lesbians are included to sexualize storylines and Gay men are depicted as shrill-screaming comic relief. Where is everyone else in this picture? Short Answer: They’re not. And we want to change that!
In the deep, forgotten places of the world are things most people would not believe, and even fewer would understand. Old things, old ways, old truths…and old monsters. Creatures so terrible, we did everything we could to forgot them. But just because you forget a monster doesn’t mean it’s forgotten you.
The Monsters We Forgot Trilogy is a collection of over 100 folklore-inspired horror stories by a multi-national team of authors ranging from award-winners and bestsellers to visionary newcomers.
